Last open water outing for this year.

8 posts in this topic

Tomorrow will be my last day on the open water for this year.

My son and I will be making it a full day out there in what is predicted to be one of our nicest Oct days this month.

My friend and fellow Vermilion guide Dave Schaeffer Will also be out there fishing by us trying to get that one last giant gator to bite.

He and a friend boated his 4th. 40# plus musky today, his second 40# plus this week! shocked.gif

Hope that everyone has had a great summer! smile.gif

Time to get ready for deer season and also time to get this winters gear and the fishhouses ready.

Good Fishing!

Cliff

Thanks Cliff. I've read a lot of your posts this year as a new member to the site.

I'll be heading up to my place this weekend too and will give a quick water/ice report early next week.

So Clifford how did the day go? I was thinking on making one more trip, but since you put my way of getting out to the main lake away, I guess I will have to wait until spring. I would certainly enjoy another winter outing when you have the time. Let me know, actually I will probaly see you two before that time comes. I have an idea for a business venture when I move there next spring, and would like to run it by you and see what you think. Until we see each other take care. Later Darrell.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
