I found fall

4 posts in this topic

I found FALL and good walleye fishing last week in the arrowhead area of Minnesota (Cook county). The leaves were changing color and the northwest wind had a bite as I camped and fished. The sun was shining on the burnt orange and red treetops with fallen yellow aspen leaves floating in the water as I fished a quit little lake. The rocky bluff on the opposite shore from camp looked like a multi colored bouquet and the undercover ferns were all brown. Enjoyed my first 2007 venison steaks (that’s another story) and fresh caught walleye suppers. I had a good time!

Yea...Same thing is happening on vermilion...cept I haven't found the walters yet. I am going to try the fall spots today to see if they are there. I think NW wind is supposed to be picking up today too...heavens not that far away!!! Then it'll be time ti sit in the blind for sunrise and then switch boats and go catch the limits of walleyes.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
