Island Lake- Sat. Sept 9 Hot Bite

1 post in this topic

For those of you who still have the fishing urge Island Lake is on the fall bite. Launched @ 7:00 AM on Saturday and had the lake to ourselves. By noon we had two limits of walleyes all 19 to 13 inches. We had steady action and returned another 30 smaller fish and one 30 inch musky. Jigs and minnows fished slow and vertical down the sides of center lake reefs was the ticket to sucess this time. This is a classic fall bite on Island. Fishing will be good till freeze up. Given the fact that there was a solid season changing cold front moving in I thought that this was an excellent result.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
