Fall Fishing In Baudette MN
Fall is almost here. The crisp air, the changing leaves, and the perfect fishing! The emerald shiner run marks the migration of the walleye up Rainy River and the start of outstanding fall fishing at Baudette Resorts. Fishing, fall hunting, and the fall foliage are just a few of the reasons why you should head to Lake of the Woods.
Walleye is a freshwater fish, also called the yellow walleye to distinguish it from the blue walleye. Walleyes are gold and olive in color. They have a large mouth with many sharp teeth. Their average length is 16-18 inches, but they can get as big as 31 inches.
Northern’s are a predator and one of the easiest fish to catch because it so willingly bites. Most Northern’s run 2 to 3 pounds, though trophies over 20 pounds are caught each year. A Northern Pike is an olive green color with shading from yellow to white along the belly.
A Lake Sturgeon is sometimes called a living dinosaur because their characteristics have remained relatively unchanged since the early fossil records. Characteristics are a heterocercal caudal fin and an elongated body that is smooth-skinned, scaleless and armored with lateral rows of bony plates.
The sauger is a freshwater fish that resembles its close relative the walleye. Saugers have a fusiform body structure and are adapted predatory fishes. They are capable of swimming into fast currents with minimal drag. They can be distinguished from walleyes by their spotted dorsal fin, rough skin over their gill, and by their brassy, almost black, color.
