Fishing Report 9-13-09

The stable weather has stabilized the fishing some. Water temps are in the low to mid 70s after a couple of warm sunny days.

Bass are still using deep structure but a few are starting to roam shallow flats with scattered cover. If there's not baitfish either visible or on your electronics where you are fishing, consider moving around to find some. If you see schools of shiners or pin minnows swimming around, work through the area very methodically.

Pike are using transition areas in 10-15 feet of water, especially in areas where gills are suspending. Points will a sharp taper from 8-20 feet are holding lots of fish.

Musky fishing has been slow but steady. Swimbaits, minnowbaits, and topwaters continue to produce fish in open water areas. Most fish are making a couple of moves to shallower water to feed, but suspending in deeper water the rest of the day. Suckers are already catching fish, and that bite is sure to pick up as the season continues.


Reminder: Fishing Reports will continue to be posted here through the end of Musky Season. Stay with us this fall.
