fall bite and weather...?

4 posts in this topic

So the question up for discussion is...

What is it going to take weatherwise to get the fish going?

It sure doesn't help for the wind to change every other day.

The water temp is around 62. The forcast is for fairly 'normal' fall temps.

Speculations anyone?

I'm not sure how water temps are sitting right now, but hopefully things get cranking for next weekend (after duck opener) as I believe I may be out on the water for 4 days.

Was on Ida yesterday. It was still 61.5.

I got one walleye on a fast break in 30 feet with a 'tail.

Didn't stick around as long as I planned with the wind.

The wind seems to be 25 everyday switching from nw to se every other day.

Not too much drastic temperature cooling in the forecast.

Wouldn't mind trying Miltona, but the winds are too much for my boat.

We fished Miltona last weekend. We caught a lot of walleyes but they were tiny little things. Some of the smallest I've ever caught. We did manage a couple 17's and one 19.5. Caught fish from 5 foot to 40 foot deep. Most on minnows and jigs. a couple on raps. Can't wait to get out again next weekend. hopefully find some bigger fish.

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
