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.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
