September Lakes - Where would you go?

4 posts in this topic

Myself and two friends have a long weeknd the middle of September. Fall isn't far off and we are unsure as to what lake(s)/area(s) to hit. Not really targeting any specific species, eyes would be nice, but panfish, pike and bass are all good too. Willing to try any number of spots as we will be mobile from where we are staying and know there is a great number of lakes to choose from in OT County....so, if you had a long weekend in September...where would one consider going? Thanks in advance for all of the kind input!!!

We have done good on Pelican in early Oct. but that was a few years ago. For eyes, not a ton, but big ones. good luck!

thanks Box! Have not tried Pelican in a while - great idea and it is a good fall lake...may be something to look into.

I am hoping that the lack of posts is due to good fishing weather keeping people on the lakes as opposed to inside on the pc...

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
