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.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
