When will fall bite be on?

5 posts in this topic

I'm trying to plan a trip and am very flexible as to when I come up to mille lacs, however there will be a few people involved so we are trying to get it on the calendar now. When would be a good time to plan a trip with the fall bite is going strong? Also, during the fall bite is jig and minnow the best presentation. Thanks.

I would guess things should pick up towards the end of the month. Mid Oct-to freeze up would be prime time.

I've done well in the past in the day using rigs, with leeches, crawlers with spinners.

If there's a wind slip bobbers during the day works also.

Eve - slip bobbers or trolling cranks. Shallow Shad Raps, or Husky Jerks grin.gif

By the way the bite is right now (almost dead) I don't know if there will be much of a fall bite, what do otheres think?

Nothing beets a fall full moon lighted bobber trip.

Fishing rock reefs at night in a mega cluster of boats does not make for good bed fellows. Sitting in a spot were one has marked fish and tossing out a lighted float is the best.

Can not wait!!!

Water temperature drives the bite. I like to see it below 50 for "prime time" and that typically falls toward the latter part of October. This year the full moon is on October 26, so any time that week should be fair to excellent.

I just booked a room at The Red Door for that week if that means anything. grin.gif

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      fished a different spot today and it was strange, I was using crawlers and a lot of eyes bit and only 1 sucker.  guy next to me was using earthworms and he caught a lot of suckers and 1 eye.  twilight zone ! !  LOL  I just use a slpit shot most of the time.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
