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!

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
