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

that was right after i got retired again , then found myself near full time in my part time job through today-tomorrow-next week till deer opener , not complainin - it could be worse always and im still alive , well , busy , healthy and looking to the future for better ,

There's a 3lb eater from the Assiniboine river last night.
Sister's phone was covered in late evening dew.
Caught in river water about 2 feet deep.
Haven't been getting much of this due to low water...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

water levels are a big issue here as well , i can walk across the mississippi a block south of here , above the dam is still at normal but the water is moving slow and a lot of algae issues in calm water not been this low in many years - maybe ever in my time here of near 40 years , my lawn is still green without watering but only because of the trees shading it the neighbors are all brown , the river in the back lawn is dead calm - not the norm ..............
good thing is we have no mosquitoes at all - i love that , almost unheard of here , i dont miss them and have enjoyed being out in my lawn till all hours this summer
