October Fish Locations

6 posts in this topic

Was thinking about coming up in mid october to fish for stream trout in Ely. Contemplating just doing that in the early morning hours then maybe hitting vermilion for the rest of the day(s). I'm a multispecies guy so I'm just wondering whats available and where they are that time of year?

Best time of the year for Walleye, we have done good in bay mouths and some of the same spots as on opener. Plus there hardly is anyone on the lake. Muskies are going good at that time too, I think a lot of people are trolling for them in the fall.

I get a lot of walleyes fishing jigs/minnows in deep water in the fall.

Great time to be on Vermilion! laugh.gif

When do the ciscos start moving into the shallows to spawn? Are they willing biters at that time?

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.

      Funny you say that, Bassthumb.  The slow bite under our house was last week...my dad was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week and he lost count of how many fish they caught.  We've been on a very inconsistent bite this year, though...every time we think about moving the house, we have a day or two of especially good bite before it slows down again.
