My daughters and I are going to take a 4-day trip up Little Indian Sioux to Shell Lake and those in the area Sept. 27 - Oct. 1. We've been in the area a few times, but never this late in the fall. Any advice for fishing the area - especially Shell? Thanks!

No fishing advice per se, but I stayed at campsite 55 on Con Island last fall. Nice site, and you can easily access Heritage lake with a brief paddle and easy portage. Both lakes fished well as I recall, though nothing in particular stands out as far as spots.

These are areas I’ve had success at different times of the year. I mainly troll with various Rapalas and jig using some type of soft plastic. Good luck.

egknuti: "These are areas I’ve had success at different times of the year. I mainly troll with various Rapalas and jig using some type of soft plastic. Good luck. "

That pretty much matches my experience. Trolling Rapalas only, though I came up empty in the south bay.

This is the coldest late September I have seen in a long time. #14 Little Indian Sioux should be really pretty and I've heard lately that in a lot of areas the walleye are biting well. Lots of crawlers being sold lately. Not sure on what they are using there for lures, sorry.
