Southeast Minnesota Fishing Report – September 27th, 2013
Walleyes and northern pike are hitting minnows or Rapalas on Lake Mazaska in 10 to 12 feet and you’ll find plenty of panfish at this depth as well. Cedar Lake is kicking out sunfish and bass in 12 to 14 feet and sucker minnows are turning pike at Shields Lake in seven to 12 feet. There’s an evening walleye and perch bite at the bridge on County Road 12 of Cannon Lake. The small ponds and backwater areas of most rivers gave up quite a few wood ducks on the opener.

You’ll find sunfish scattered throughout the wing dams and crappies on the snags in the main channel of the Mississippi River. Sucker minnows are producing pike in the backwaters and trolling crankbaits for walleyes has been productive on the wing dam edges on the river. There seemed to be more people hunting on the duck opener than last year with wood ducks and geese in most bags.
