What to expect this time of year

3 posts in this topic

Heading up next weekend for a three day charter trip. We've usually gone (last 5 years) in mid to late October and, at that point, it's almost all jiggin in the river. What can I expect this time of year? No on in our crew fishes LOW other than on this trip and we're all kind of curious. Thanks!

Well for one thing, you can expect MUCH nicer more stable

weather.

Charter boats out of the river resorts are still mostly

trolling. It is a very steady bite right out of the

Lighthouse Gap, anywhere from 20 to 30 feet of water

depending on the day.

There is a transition coming before long when the fish

really start to chase enough to start using a jig. It

will cool down some the Shiner minnows show up. A

warm fall with slow this transition down some but you

can troll right up till jigging time rolls in.

I will say right up front it ought

to be a good trip (weather permitting)

Who are you going out with?

We're heading to Schusters for I think the fourth year running. Solid operation - - they have always treated us very well. We're FIRED UP! Like I said in year's past it's always been jiggin, which is loads of fun. I'd be very interested in a new presentation. Thanks for the insight. Take care.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
