Two adults, Two kids under Five Years old, Two Hours & Twenty-one Fish! It is pretty easy to find fish and leave with a limit when fishing at Sportsmans this year. Gregg and his young family went out and had a great time Sunday afternoon pulling in walleyes and saugers, check out these pictures.
Annual Emerald Shiner Run The time is soon coming that the emerald shiners will be running the river and so will the walleyes. Just in the past few days we have started to see seagulls out in the river feeding which is one indication that there are some shiners roaming around. Another indication is some local netters have started to see a few in their nets too. It seems to be just the very beginning but stay tuned in the next few weeks the rush will be on! Get your arms pumped up your going to need them.
The who, what, when and where We are starting to see the fishing start to move in closer to the south shore this past week. Long Point and Zippel Bay have been popular spots bait fishing with gold spinners or jigs tipped with a minnow or trolling with shads of any color in thirty to thirty-five feet of water.
Lake Sturgeon Few reports of some nice size sturgeon have been heard lately too. The best approach to find these monsters is to anchor in the Rainy River or Four Mile Bay. These fish are great to smoke the meat or just catch and release they can be a fighter. Dont forget you can keep one until Sept 30!
Early Goose Season is now thru September 22 The geese are flying. Talked to a guy that says he has seen several birds fly over his house the past few days in the early morning.

Sharp tailed Grouse The grouse have been drumming and locals have been talking. The chatter has been that they have been seeing more than average. Should be a good year!

Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
