With the end of season in sight, there are a lot of fishermen on the river to finish up the last few days. Good weather and good fishing will make for a busy place around Baudette this weekend.
Don and I fished the river Thursday afternoon for about three hours. Water conditions are good with very little current. We anchored up in fifteen feet of water and a light, cool northwest breeze moved the boat around easily. The bite wasn’t fast, but good enough to keep us happy. We caught ten walleyes; one pike and a small sauger. We were able to keep our two walleyes each and the other six; 2-20″, 2-25″, 1-27″ & 1-28″ were released. Gold jigs with frozen shiners seem to be a good color, although Don did well using a bright orange jig.
