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.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
