Pitching crank baits is producing fish!
Cooler temps are here somewhat but the fishing continues to be pretty darn good if you can handle the cold. First off jigging all the bridges with minnows or crawlers has been working pretty good. Seems 11am-3pm has been the best time for jig fishing. All the deep rock piles and structured spots on the main bay have been producing fish as well. Trolling the golden highway with leadcore has been excellent. Wally divers flicker shads and salmo hornets have been the bait of choice. Pelican ridge remains hot as well. Some days the fish are on top in 16 FOW and other days on the edge and bottom in 18-22 FOW. A lot of nice fish have been caught on the golden highway and pelican ridge. Pitching crank baits is producing fish as well. Not as many fish but really nice fish. Basically go back to the spots you fished this spring and cast away. Weeds are dieing so fish are moving back up shallow as well. Good luck and good fishing!
[The] big buck and doe contest is here again this year with a nice set of binocs for the buck and tail cam for the doe. North Dakota tags only and we go by weight of the deer field dressed.
