fall evening trolling

4 posts in this topic

Hi all. I'm going to be up on the west end the first week in October. With the short daylight hours, I was thinking of trying out some after dark trolling.

What are the best strategies for Vermilion that time of year?

Be sure you've got a good GPS and trail already plotted in dayloight, as the lake is very low and those rocks can reach out and touch someone in the dark. shocked.gif

Amen to the good GPS and plot trails. Another important thing to be careful of this time of year when fishing at night... when the sun goes down and those temps drop quick! look out for heavy FOG on the water. That can get scary in a hurry confused.gifshocked.gif

Thanks for the warnings. I do have a GPS and am well aware of the various weather on Vermilion. A few years back this time I was trying to race a snowsnorm to the cabin. I lost and was stuck in zero visibility snow for about 5 minutes before I felt safe traveling again.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
