Fall Fishing Report for Sept. 7, 2021

Fishing Report – Swanson’s Bait & Tackle

Brought to us by Fish On Outdoors with Bill Hornung


Walleye- Fall fishing has started!! Live bait rigs with minnows (Redtails, Rainbows, and Creek Chubs) worked off breaks is producing fish. Breaks might be weeds or rocks depending on the lake and depths might range from 12ft down to 30ft. Crawlers will also work during the fall bite. Keep throwing Jigraps as well to find active fish.

Panfish- Try and upsize your bait to catch bigger fish in the fall. Find bait and you’ll find fish.

Muskie- Fall bite means big baits! If you can throw it, fish can eat it. The top water bite has been getting a lot of action. Keep casting or try trolling big baits along weed or rock edges.


Good Luck!
