Late Fall Fishing

6 posts in this topic

Anyone still fishing Winnie this time of year. I'm going to be up in Deer River next week doing some deer hunting and would like to add in a little Walleye fishing. Any specific tips for this time of year? If not Winni, any other lakes preferred for late fall fishing? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I was on Winnie 10-6 thru 10-9 every thing we caught was very shallow, 3-6 ft of water. On Sat the 7th we were catching perch and walleyes with a jig and minnow over the side of the boat in 3 ft of water. We could see the fish as we caught them. The rest of the time we trolled crank baits. It was a fun weekend as long as you stayed out of the wind.

Hey Jason I might be up there on this coming Monday. If the wind is from the north, where would you wet a line on Cutfoot? If it's not snowing to bad I would like to try "onemoretime: grin.gif

one other question: what type of minows are recommended on Winni/Cutfoot this time of year? Fatheads, shiners, redtails? Can you find redtails up there? Thanks.

We couldn't find redtails when we were up. We used fatheads and did ok, but we did our best trolling crankbaits.

Next year I plan to make a minnow transporter out of an old cooler and an aireator and bring my own minnows.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
