Southwest Minnesota Fishing Report – November 8th, 2013

FAIRMONT AREA

Hall Lake and Budd Lake continue to give up walleyes during the evening hours in less than six feet or during the day in 10 to 12 feet. A few anglers are finding crappies in the channels between Hall, Budd, and Sissiton Lake again this week but fishing pressure has dropped. A few divers have been moving through, but there hasn’t been a big push of new ducks into the area.

MANKATO AREA

The majority of walleye action is now coming off the Minnesota River and Blue Earth River with a jig and minnow. You’ll also pluck a few walleyes off the shoreline of Lake Elysian with minnows. Pheasant hunting has been poor and the fields are holding geese and mallards during the mornings and evenings.

ORTONVILLE AREA

The Hartford Beach and SoDak areas on the north end of Big Stone Lake are producing walleyes in six to 10 feet via minnows and jigs. Pheasant hunting continues to be poor, there’s more diver ducks in the area, while archery hunters are shooting more deer and they have noted that bucks are more active this week.

STARBUCK AREA

The few guys going out are catching walleyes with a jig and minnow in 12 to 14 feet around the points of Lake Minnewaska throughout the day. Waterfowl hunting continues to be good with numbers of geese and mallards to be had, but pheasant hunting has been very poor by most accounts.
