WALLEYE HUNTER

Night Bobber bite

16 posts in this topic

Is there a bobber bite in late Oct. or is trolling the better option?

Both presentations work well this time of the year. I know people who do well with "corks" during the mid to late Oct bite. Use minnows on a red hook, or on glow jigs.

I know that sometimes the trolling people don't like to see guys anchor.

With both types of presentations, the key is to cover water, and different depths.

Good luck and post your results.

I got to watch as they took one of the launch boats out this weekend at Appledoorns. But I know for a fact, the night before a group from Augsburg were out throwing corks and caught 15 walleye. I would say the cork bite is still good. You probably have a better chance of getting slot fish doing it as well.. but trolling cranks will put the big girls in the boat.

Trolling is typically the preferred method just be cause you can cover more area and find large groups of fish. But even in listening to Tony Roach the other day, he said sometimes if they are getting some hits but no hook-ups, its not a bad idea to set up on a structure and toss some lighted bobbers. The fish may be in shallow, but in somewhat of a neutral mood to cranks wobbling by. A nice fat minnow sitting on a string can do the trick.

I would even try using 4-6" redtails under a bobber for awhile. Just what the big Eyes are looking for. A big chunk of meat just sitting there.

Any luck on finding any more of those hats???

Jeremy, Airjer, put the order in for us a month or so ago. I'm not sure who he dealth with but I'm sure they could track that down or setup any other cap you may be interested in. They do very nice work and will also do other custom item to the cap including your username. laugh.gif

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
