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

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
