Fall bite update

4 posts in this topic

I have a group coming up next weekend and they are fired up

and I am fired up so it will be a long week.

It's happening now, the legendary fall bite on the river and

out into the lake. Still its not all day every day. This

time of the year the weather can and does still come into

play. Get a decent day (or a tolerable one) and you should

do well.

I heard that Al Thompson (from Lake o Woods Marine) caught

a fat 15 pounder this week, I am going to call him and

confirm that today. That would be the biggest fish caught

in many many many years on LOW or the Rainy.

The fish are fat and sassy, let's go get some.

Curt, not sure if it's the same story or not, but I was told that Steve Martin caught a 15lber. He was prefishing the tourney at Pine Falls. I think he may have been fishing with Al. Again, not sure if it's the same info, but I'd guess that it is.

Al caught the whopper on Wednesday. 15 pounds and maybe

a bit more.....The fish was hauled out of Pine Falls,

Manitoba. They catch them that big there sometimes. What

a great fish...not from the Rainy. Thanks Scoot\\

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
