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

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
