Foliage and weekend fishing?

8 posts in this topic

I am curious how the leaves looked this weekend and how the walleye fishing was? I am coming up next Thursday-Sunday and hopefully the leaves will still be brilliant and the fishing will be good. Any insight would be welcomed!

PSU,

The walleye bite was fairly good if you kept moving.

The leaves should be almost at their peak color when you get up.

Maples have pretty well ran their course. Some color yet but not like it was earlier in the week. Lots of wind took most to the ground early. Ash and birch are changing but still more green than any other color. More wind coming so will see. I haven't had time to fish but customers are reporting little trouble finding fish. Should only be getting better.

The Walleye action is very good. Just got back from a week at the cabin and boated lot's of fish every day. Easy to find them and catching them with a jig and minnow. Only problem for me is lot's of small stuff and it takes a while to catch a limit of legit keepers. Heading back this Thursday for another 10 day stay.

PSU,

Walleyes are going good after you find them, and the leaves look great!

We had good steady fishing from 8:00 am till about 2:30 pm when the bite quit. The leaves were stunning and the warm temps made it all the better. The wind has been blowing here in Duluth all week and the leaves are starting to fall. The popple trees are still green. I'm headed back to Vermillion Sat. Rain and wind are forcast.

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
