Most anglers are turning their attention to the fall walleye bite with lake temperatures ranging from 60-65 degrees. Many of the great locations for finding walleye in the spring will work in the fall as well. Stay near the weeds, moving water and concentrate on shallower waters for the larger walleye. For the best action use bottom bouncers, jigs and lindy rig presentations. For live bait, use crawlers, sucker minnows and fatheads. Just don’t be surprised if you catch a hungry northern pike as well in those locations. Some great shore fishing was reported on Lake Lillian, Wagonga Lake, Diamond Lake, South Long Lake, Willmar Lake, Foot Lake and Ringo Lake.
