Fall into bigger lures

3 posts in this topic

As the fall progresses I move to big lures -big spinner blades, big cranks, even big blade baits. Also about the fall, if you like to jig, the fall is the time to do it, look for structure and deep breaks. On a side note structure can be the shoreline and not only a point. In the fall in particular the shorelines do produce well, I like places with deep water close to shore. They aren't all the same, but try a few and you should run into fish! grin.gif

Keep Catchin'

I believe change is on the way and minnows will take over the prefered bait. I personally believe redtails are by far the best bait to use after labor day. Thanks to the fellow forum users, my baitwell will have lots of redtails in it for my early saturday morning outing.

In the fall do you find the eyes deep or are they getting shallow? If they are deep have you had success trolling? And I noticed on another post you were down by kinni, Do the fish head downstream towards red Wing in the fall or do they stay all over they river? May seem like dumb questions but I have not fished the river much.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
