MUSKELLUNGE: ONTARIO: FG/OG Lake Nipissing still best bet with Callandar Bay giving up a 34-pound 12-ounce monster. Bay of the French Rivers, Sheguiandah and McGregor Bay by Birch Island are current hot spots.
MINNESOTA: FP/FF and OF as WT drops to low 40s in North. Best recent catch: 31-pounder from Sucker Bay in Leech Lake.
NEW YORK: Scout reports many over-20-pound muskies caught near Cape Vincent last week and any number of great northern pike. Harold Sanford and Richard Roos, Jamestown, landed the year's largest muskellunge from Chautauqua Lake while trolling Ashville Bay. Weight: 36 pounds, length 54 inches. With colder nights, OG.
WISCONSIN: Some light frost and rain have brought on biggest catches of the season and a 38-pounder was taken in Whitefish Lake on a black bucktail. Thus far in season 34 legal muskies have been caught off one dock in the Chippewa River flowage. OVG.
PENNSYLVANIA: Fishing picking up in Conneaut and French creeks with fish taking chubs and artificials.
BLACK BASS: FLORIDA: Bass fishermen beginning to take limit catches in north as cooler weather puts fish on move. Upper reaches Ochlockonee and Apalachicola considered best bets. H. C. Brown, Lutz, Fla., took a 15-pound 6-ouncer in central Florida's Lake Hancock, Florida's bass of the year. OG.
TENNESSEE: FG/OG for both large-and small-mouth. Ray Morgan of Rockwood brought home the limit from Watts Bar Lake. Largest of his 10 bass was 6 pounds 14 ounces.
MISSOURI: Fishing's been pretty poor in Lake of the Ozarks, but nothing wrong that a few cool days won't correct.
