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.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
