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

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
