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.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
