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!

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
