Mid-September Fishing

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I read often, but post very little.

I've fished Rainy for many years in late July (last 2 weeks)) and recently started fishing the last week of June, but never in September. What can I expect for mid-September fishing? Will it be like summer fishing or do the fish move to different type of structure that time of year? Do they move deeper or shallower? I'm just trying to get some idea before we hit the water. confused.gif I don't expect to get specific locations, but general comments would be very much appreciated.

Thanks Much!

HI CLK.,

AS THE FALL PROGRESSES, THE WALLEYES MOVE DEEPER IN RAINY, THE CRAPPIES REALLY START SCHOOLING UP, ACTUALLY IT CAN BE SOME OF THE BEST FISHING. I LIKE USING 3/8 OZ YELLOWISH/GOLD JIGS. TIPPED WITH RAINBOWS. LIKE ANYTIME I FISH RAINY, I LOOK FOR SOME GOOD MARKS ON THE GRAPH & THROW A MARKER. I'M GUESSING THAT WILL BE IN 35 TO 42 FEET ON REEF EDGES. YOU CAN ALSO SPEED TROLL PLUGS. THESE FISH ARE FEEDING HEAVY ON SMELT BUILDING THEIR FAT RESERVES FOR THE WINTER. WHERE YOU FIND SMELT, YOU WILL FIND WALLEYES. ALOT OF TIME(SEPT. & OCT.) WE GET ALOT OF WIND, SO I ANCHOR ALOT.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
