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.

here in a bit

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\\

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time
