Lakes Turned Over? Walleye Feedbags On?

6 posts in this topic

I'm going to be up in the Battle Lake area next weekend 10/13 (taking the docks in) and was wondering if anyone knows if the lakes have turned over yet or if the Walleyes are putting on the feedbags in the current? Thanks for any info!

I guess I'll just reply to myself - I'll be fishing the area this weekend. Mostly from a canoe or wading. The weather looks good. I hope the fall bite is on. If anyone's interested I'll let you know how I do.

Hi fishcanoe,

I really don't think the turnover has happened yet.

I was hunting ducks on North Turtle yesterday, and I was setting and picking up decoys bare handed without any discomfort. I'd say the water temps might still be in the mid to upper 50's.

How was the duck hunting?

For about 10 minutes, pretty dang good. Woodie/mallard action was very active a little after from about 715 to 725. Then it tailed way off. Not a whole lot of new birds around, but that could change any day.

Was on Otter Tail Saturday for the afternoon, water temp was 55(suface), fishing was slow. A few good bites anywhere from 30-50 ft. but nothing to show for it. Hopefully the bite will pick up as the water cools.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
