I want to come up in october, do I need an extension?

5 posts in this topic

Seriously now, I want to get back into fall fishing. I have fished url in the winter and spring now. How is fall fishing? Im sure walleyes wont be hard to catch, but how about the crappies, and big pike?

Is the lake very busy this time of year?

Thanks for your help!

I think what's Jon is trying to say without really saying it, 'cause he wants to keep them for himself and his clients, which I totally understand, is:

October is flat out the very best trolling for giant Red Lake Northern Pike.

At least in my experience. They just can't help it. 4 guys in a boat with a mast and boards. Be prepared. Wimpy little spinning gear will be totally destroyed.

PS - Jon really wouldn't keep anything from you. There's more than enough to go around. If properly handled and released. I fished a guy from Kansas about ten years ago that was ready to kill me. Wanted one to mount for his store. Told him to buy his own boat. Not in mine. grin.gif

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
