One of idratherbefishing's fall picks is putting out fish (walleyes) but you have to be trolling with the right lure is what I have been told.

I haven't been out in a couple weeks, but after labor day is usually when the fun starts! I will be casting shad raps, jigs, and beetle spins into shorelines in the evenings or early mornings.

Say the walleyes are starting to bite below the dam at LaqQuil Parle. Pretty good numbers. Just talked to a gentleman who fished Big Stone this past weekend and had a hard time catching a cold up there. Goose Lake is giving up a few walleyes on plugs. Del Clarke is giving up nice Blue gills. The perch fishing should start on Wood Lake (Margarett) any time now.

Any big 'eyes taken from below the dam yet on LQP? Fish there any time I can, but I've just gotten small cats there on my last few trips...

Local rumor is that Round Lake is starting to give up some eyes.

I don't know how many fishing boats were out there over the weekend, but I can tell you that there were about a dozen out there on Thursday and Friday mornings. That many boats make it easy to see what part of the lake they're biting on, but the traffic is a little too congested for my liking. grin.gif

Round Lake was the lake I was refering to a few posts back. Heard there were 42 boats there either on Saturday or Sunday. A lot of small fish 11-12" the keepers were between 14-16". From the guys I talked to the fish were very picky on what they were biting on and how far behind the boat it was being trolled. A lot of preople with no or a few fish.

They are also catching real nice perch out of Big Spirit in Iowa with real good action over the weekend.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
