fall shore/wader fishing

2 posts in this topic

Are there any decent shore/wader fishing spots in the alex area for fall bass/panfish? I regretfully put the boat away last weekend and am now wishing i had it back. With football ending sooner than expected, I'm looking to get out and do some soft water catch and release fishing before freeze up. Any help is appreciated. thanks

Lots of possibilities, kt...

any of the channels around the chain...Geneva/LeHommeDieu..Geneva/Victoria...Carlos/LeHommeDieu..etc. The south side of Geneva offers some good shore and nice bottom to wade. The east side of LeHommeDieu, by 29 and the beach...always great shore fishing, and wadeable too. Have fised in waders at the inlet on Darling...where the creek from Cowdry pours in. Stood there with the cold current massaging my legs in late October as the snow flakes began to fall...wish I could say we reeled em in hand over fist..but not much biting that night...a neat image and nice memory though. The north shore of Lake Burgen, off the public access is nice and wadeable fishing too.

Lots of choices...

but for me, little time...

wish you luck, fellow angler!

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
