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!

Thanks Ranckenstuff! Hopefully we will be able to find them okay. Are you going to be up next weekend? Your Dad?

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.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
