The bite

5 posts in this topic

There are a few small lakes in the area that have been producing some nice eyes. Unfortunately I can't get my boat into them. My brother and his fishing partner were out Saturday night and ended up with 8 eyes some around 3-4 lbs. My cousin and a couple friends on another lake ended up catching 12 along with some really decent crappies and one 33" northern that put up a heck of a fight I guess. I went out once last weekend on a remote lake and scored a few northerns in the 3-4 pound range and had a decent walleye almost up to the boat but it got OFF . If the weather holds up this weekend I'm going to give a couple lakes a try. I've never fished in the fall. I usually switch to hunting but this year I'm gonna stay on the water. I seen a LOT of boats out on Tulaby lake last fall, I live like 2 miles from it so I gotta give it a shot. Does anyone have any experience fishing that lake in the fall?? Any tips they would like to give up grin.gif I'll post the results as I venture out through out the fall.

I have heard some good "whispers" about that lake. I don;t know any specific info but I have heard people talk about it. I will keep my ears open.

well as promised I would post some results. THey aren't that great we went out on Tulaby on Saturday and managed a couple eyes. We trolled back and forth just east of the river in I don't know how deep of water because my locater took a dump on me and now I need to find a new one. But I got bit off a few times by pike and we managed a couple 14-15"ers on crawlers and spinners. I'm heading out there again the next decent evening.

well we tried ol tulaby again on sunday morning. We pulled one decent eye, a football shaped 18"er, out of there in about 5-6' fow. We also got 5 northerns and a crappie that morning. We went out that evening and got the skunk. I don't know if it was the weather or what because I tell you that landing was empty for this time of year.

As promised I'll keep on posting results. Did REALLY well over the weekend on an area lake. First morning out we caught 16 eyes and probably just as many decent crappies as well as a few bullheads of course. Sunday we caught a dozen eyes and the biggest being a Fat 26"er my brother caught. We caught the fish on shoreline structure in varying depths. Anywhere from 8-30'. HA HA Can't wait for next weekend.

      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.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      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.
