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.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.
