I would like to thank Matt, Joel, and Corey for the great job they did at the Fall Fishing Seminar last night. It was very informational and entertaining as well.

Joel touched on the scientific aspects of the fall turnover in a lake and how fish species are affected by the lake turning over. And of course how to use this knowledge to help us become better fisherman.

Matt discussed fishing bass and panfish into this fall period with specific emphasis on some metro area lakes.

Corey went through a crash course in trolling cranks for fall walleyes. I know your "secret crank" for Mille Lacs eyes now Corey! wink.gif

As always, the use of plastics was a hot topic and Matt showed a variety of plastics he's currently using for bass and how he rigs and fishes them.

Good job guys!

For those who didn't make it, make sure to attend one of these seminars in the future. The seminars are very relaxed and interactive and we encourage questions and participation.

Thanks Chris. It was nice to see you again and it's always fun getting a chance to sit down with you and Corey afterwards for a beverage and few stories wink.gif

I would also like to thank Joel and Corey for an outstanding job.

I learned a lot from Joel's presentation on the fall turnover and how different factors play a role in different lakes. Those types of things go unnoticed by most anglers but can really help in patterning fall fish.

Corey definitely gave a crash course on crankbaits! smile.gif He also threw in a little ice fishing every once in a while too wink.gif

The fall transition is an interesting time of the year. For some it can be frustrating and for others it is that long awaited time of success!

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
