    With this amazing weather the boat isn’t put a away just yet. We have gone down the the Mississippi the last few weeks with marginal results. I was thinking of changing it up and going a little closer to home.

    Does anyone have any feedback on if we easily find some walleyes or crappies?

    If you have been out lately and have any advise that would be sweet.

    Thanks for your help.

    On the way to Holcombe is a state park called Burnet Island. It is on the Chippewa River north of the town of Cornell. There is a slough right in the middle of the north most campground fed from the river. Late fall and great weather equals big river craps in that slough. Shore fish the east side about the middle of the slough with slip bobbers. Very snaggy.

    My other suggestion would be Cranberry. You will have company but the fish will be there….

    I have fished by Burnet, when camping there in the summer. I have never fished there in the fall. That sounds like a good option.

    Where is Cranberry?

    Found Cranberry! Just outside the campground.

    Is that good for crappie in the fall. I’ve been back there thought that was pretty shallow.

    Didn’t know crappies would be back there. Have you heard of success this time of year there?

    Cranberry contected to Holcombe will have pre ice crappie, and gils, northern, even s few walleye. It has deep holes. There are deep holes. Also great first ice but crowded.

    Can I get my good sized boat under the bridge in the park to get in that slough?
