When would you go...

8 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a week of vacation to take between the end of July and the end of September. My question is if you guys had the choice, when would you go? I've been to the lake once for opener so I don't have good knowledge of how the bite progresses towards the end of the summer. Would there be any difference to wait until the end of September or not? I know mid summer is upon us so the bite has slowed. Any opinions are appreciated!

The bite is still good. We caught 30 on Fri 6/29 for 3 people. We were able to keep 10.

I guess it all depends on how you want to fish. The Fall bite can be awesome up there. Day is good, but I guess it's hard to beat trolling cranks. I have not had the chance to do this, but I will do that this fall.

Without a doubt the third week in September. The big eyes will be up shallow at night and will have the feedbag on. During the early evening a guy can go out and cast for Muskie up on the shallow rock reefs and have a very good chance at a hook up.

What would be better than ending up with a Personal Best Muskie and Eye in the same week laugh.gif

Paul,

Give my cell a call. Would like to set up a time and learn from "one of the best" for night trolling in Fall.

If you can't find it, send me an e-mail. mpothen@intricon.com

Thanks Paul, I'll be calling you to get a reservation as soon as I can nail down the dates.

Rodmaker, Maybe we'll be out there about the same time...

I plan on making 4 or more night trips this Fall. (hopefully) If you look at Posts from last year, you'll find out what Paul is talking about.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
