Fall Turnover

4 posts in this topic

Seems to be alot of lakes have turned over already, I was out on waconia and the green slime is there, and I seen in the pic of thay huge bass caught this weekend(other post) that the water on that lake is also slimed. I have heard some say that fishing gets bad for a couple days when this happens...but we did pretty good on waconia in these conditions, didnt get out long because of the rain but we got 2 pike and 1 bass in an hour, first pike went over 10lbs. From all your experiences...how does the turnover affect the fish? I am going to get out tonight for sure, after seeing that massive bass I cant resist, I will try to remember to post how I do.

I noticed this too and have been avoiding those lakes & ponds. I tried fishing them through but with little success. Finding bodies of water that are still clear or havent turn over has been a key of success for me.

I was curious where you saw the post of the "huge bass"...I am always curious to see what people are catching and the size. I was up on Waconia for the first time on the Sept. 8th. We didn't have too good of luck. We had the best luck at Lake Independence...here are a few pics of that weekend

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
