Oct. 24-26 fishing trip, any tips?

2 posts in this topic

HI, My husband and I are planning a fishing trip to the lake later this week. We are wondering if anyone can give us any tips on what the fish are biting on and what kind of structure they can be found around. We would be fishing walleyes and crappies. We have never fished the lake this late, but want to get up there one more time this year.

Thanks for any help.

HI MOJO,

FISHING COULD BE TOUGH, BUT HERE IS WHAT I WOULD DO. I WOULD FISH WITH LINDY RIGS & LONG LEADERS...TIPPED WITH WHATEVER MINNOWS THE BAIT SHOPS HAVE., SHINNERS IF THEY HAVE THEM. THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, I NORMALY FISH ABOUT 40+ FEET, BUT THIS YEAR, I WOULD LOOK 25 TO 55 FEET. IF YOU WANT TO CATCH ALOT OF FISH, TRY BIRCH POINT., WHEN BOISE HAS THE GATES ALL OPEN, BIRCH POINT IS LOADED WITH FISH, YOU WILL CATCH ALOT OF SMALL FISH, SO IT TAKES SOMETIME TO CATCH A NICE LIMIT. IF ITS WINDY JIGS & ANCHORING IS THE TICKET.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
