We just returned yesterday from our annual late September Boundary Waters trip. In late September, we stay in a cabin instead of camping out. On Friday – Leif went with Rob Nelson from Ely Fishing Guide Company and had incredible luck with large walleyes. He caught his limit of walleye – all over 4 pounds! The lake they were fishing on had a slot limit so they all went back to give another fisherman a thrill.
The weather on Friday couldn’t have been better – hardly any wind – temperatures in the low 60’s and after an early morning fog/haze – the sun came out to brilliantly show the fall colors.
We hiked, fished, canoed and took in all of the beautiful fall colors. What a great way to extend the fall by seeing the fall colors earlier in northern Minnesota and coming home when they start to turn here!
