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\\

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
