Had a window to get out last night and took advantage. This move payed off! Started out fishing a spring/fall hot spot for me. Basically a big pile of timber on the edge of the river. The walleye were there immediately but allot of snags and allot of short biters stealing my bait. Pretty much non stop action though. Near sun set I moved to a fall spot more known for big fish rather than numbers. Saw fish boiling on the surface as I moved in. Crappies! First three cast’s were two nice crappies and a 20″ walleye. Pitched until I ran out of minnows, switched to crawlers and the fish kept going. The crappies moved up onto a 5′ flat and were pounding everything. Also caught some more slot walleye and shorty’s. Overall the fall bite on the river has kicked into overdrive and this fall might be better than the last few. Water temps are still a balmy 66 but most of the green crap on top of the water is gone.
