Southwest Minnesota Fishing Report – August 30th, 2013
Walleye action has been slow, but the Manhattan Reef area on Big Stone Lake is giving up bluegills and perch in 12 to 13 feet. Although water levels are dropping, the deep holes on the Minnesota River are giving up a few catfish.

Hit the bulrushes during low-light periods or 10 to 12 feet during the day for bass on Lake Minnewaska. Minnewaska also is giving up pike in the six- to eight-foot weeds, crappies off Priest Point in 14 feet, and a few sunfish in 10 to 12 feet. Stay on the move, as the sunfish have been difficult to peg. Work Reno Lake at night for walleyes with slip bobbers and leeches or crankbaits in 12 to 14 feet.
