Fall Fishing (one last question)......

4 posts in this topic

Will the cooling water temps make the fall bite any earlier this year? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. I have been reading on different resorts websites that the water temps have started to cool a lot & that the fish have started migrating to the gaps.

Thanks again!

I heard on KQ92 NorthCountry outdoors the other morning that they have been seeing a few scattered shiners in the river and it wont be long. Summer is about over. Wouldnt know it by the temps today, in the 80`s but there have been some cool nights. They also said that the fish are transitioning from the reefs to the points up around the angle.

A bit of patience will go along way. The fall fishing

is such a draw we try to make it happen sooner than it

will.

Fishing will stay pretty good in the lake and the fish

start to move a bit shallower and more fish will stage

off of Pine Island. But it's late Sept and into Oct

before this "fall bite" thing really gets going.

Try making plans to fish later rather than earlier.

Late October and thru November is when it is really

good. And you wont show up 3 weeks before the fish.

See you all up there

We usually go the opening of Deer season. Not the crowds the two weeks before and the fishing is GREAT then... Kaz

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
