Signs of Fall

34 posts in this topic

Last night after I got off the water from fishing I had to turn the truck heater on to warm my hands. Sign of fall.

You sure you're not just experiencing the onset of maturity? smirk.gif

You are correct. I have noticed that I haven't been leaving all the windows in our house open all night lately either.

I haven't "smelled" fall yet down here in Southeast Minnesota, and there are only very subtle hints in the leaves. It's coming though...

Long strung out flocks of blackbirds lately and I saw my breath tonight along the river too. Some sumac is changing bright red here, and it's getting dark pretty early now also.

Acorns have been dropping like small bombs here the last couple of weeks. Leaves will start turning soon.

Highschool and college football started, school starts on tuesday... Great fishing should be right around the corner. Was out yesterday and got 17 bass in 2 hours. Largest was only 16 inches but still good numbers. Too bad for this rain or I'd be out right now.... mad.gif Fall... By far my favorite time of the year. hands down. smirk.gif

Soybeans and corn are starting to turn, and the sugar beet lifting has started. Pretty soon harvest will be in full swing. 45 degrees when I got up this morning.

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait
