area reports?

16 posts in this topic

Was wondering if anyone has been doing any fall fishing and if any good reports have been coming from any of the area lakes?

I was out both sat. and sun. this past weekend with limited success. The water temps on the two lakes i were fishing were in the upper 50's to low 60's. Any reports would be greatly appreciated......Thanks!

I also would like to hear some reports. I'm planning on going out on Saturday and just wondering if its worth hitting the lakes around here or heading elsewhere.

Thanks

Was on Green Lake Monday....it was too nice - 80 degrees and sunny. Water temp was upper 60's. Saw lots of smallies, but they were spooked. Flogged for 5 hours and boated one 19.5 incher. I threw everything in my tackle box. Perhaps live bait down deep with larger minnows would work. confused.gifMel's Sports says its been the worst stretch of the season. Cooler temps will bring it back.

Large minnows on deep rocks that top out at 22'-24' seems best this time of year. I have never tried artifical bait on those deep ones but big minnows almost always work.

Went out today on an area lake and nailed a 12 pound pike and numerous largemouth over 4 pounds. I guess we picked the right lake, even though it was the second lake of the day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
