Too Late?

2 posts in this topic

When would be the best time to fish the mouth of the river. Thinking about the 2nd weekend in Oct. Would that be to late/early? Havn't fished the fall bite but from what I hear when the shiners are in the river the bit really slows in the bay. Any info would be appreciated thanks.

No two years are the same, however as a general rule the good bite lasts right to freeze up. Heavy rainfalls will cause increased turbidity which will shut down the bite. This especially true further up river, Clementson, Frontier, Birchdale etc. Your mid month dates should give you good fishing. Good luck. Ol Sneller

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
