Night fishing is turning the trick here...

Computer died and posted with my phone.

Still about 5-6 weeks here till freeze over.
My timing has been really off with the pickerel (walleye) this year.
Having a lot of difficulty getting to the right places at the right time.
Been putting up with low and dirty water for most of this season.
Fall feed migration from the big lake up into the rivers is off-kilter this year.

I am hopefully going after ruffies and Sharptails in the morning.
Got my license at Cabela's today.
Had a look around in the gun and optics dept's and the bargain cave.

Prices have been on a steady increase ever since Ba$$ Pro bought in.
It's costing them in my business, at least. I'll get what ever I can from the independent local guys...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

Walleye bite has been very slow this fall. We have a week to 10 days before ice-ip negates shore fishing. Managed this 2 1/2 lber at the mouth of Sturgeon Creek on the Assiniboine R.

Nice eater size. I do prefer them a little bigger, but pickings have been awfully slim of late...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail
