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

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
