How are the waters up in on the pond around this time?

3 posts in this topic

I would like to take me and the gf fishing on the pond sometime later this month or October. I have heard how nasty the winds can make it and I'm wodering if I will be able to do some night fishing for eyes with an old school 70's alumnium boat with a 40hp on the back? From what I have been reading the fish are starting to come shallow, just wondering if I can hit some ok spots with at 16ft'er on the big pond? Any help/tips/advice welcomed.

it all depends on the weather the day/night you are here. today is much better for a 16 footer than yesterday. depending on where you are going to fish and wind direction, you might have to change plans and fish on the other side of the lake to stay out of the wind..... and yes it is that time of the year that the walleye move in shallow and can be had trolling in 3 to 10 feet of water after dark...................tom fellegy

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
