Prospects this weekend?

2 posts in this topic

Well it looks like for the sixth year in a row another cold front will be coming through on our annual guys weekend (Thursday-Sunday) on Vermilion. Curious if anyone has any thoughts on where the walleyes may be.....shallow, deep, on the points? Anyway, we haven't had too much success in prior years cold front walleye fishing. At least the leaves may be pretty if they aren't all down.

Thanks

BTW, JKrash I will come by to discuss dock removal. We are thinking mid October, maybe the 14th weekend.

PSU,

The walleyes are on a good fall bite now.

Lindys and minnows or jigs and minnows will get fish in almost any area that is holding fish.

Try sharp drop offs,points and bay mouths.

Start at around 12 feet deep and just keep working deeper until you find them. Then concentrate on that depth in the area that you are fishing.

Most of my fish are comming out of 12 to 26 feet of water this week. By next week they will probably be deeper with the colder weather predicted.

I would highly recommend that you get a guide if you have had trouble catching fish in the past years during the fall on Vermilion.

Good Fishing!

Cliff

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
