Bite last night

1 post in this topic

Hey Guys!

Caught 12 real nice fish in about 27ft of water before dark last night. Only 2 fish over 20 inches, but several nice eating fish. Followed the fish up the break into shallower water come dark. Casting jig and minnow as slow as I could possibly fish it. Fish still aren't exactly snapping, but I wouldn't be surpised if the nice weather today will help put together a hot bite. I guess the rain dance we were doing really worked! Don't forget to really work your graph, and don't get caught fishing memories as these fish scattered a bit from the storms. General rule of thumb is the deep bite starts from about 32-36 feet while the shallow bite can be found in less than 5 feet. You'll find a fair amount of eater fish mixed in with slot fish in the deeper water while there will be a larger percentage of slot fish in the shallow water. When fishing the deep water in low light or the windward sides of structure don't be afraid to check up top the structure or toward shore as the fish will at times move up chasing baitfish!

      Just wondering if there was any new info/topic on upper red?

      There is about a million skid houses for sale around the lake that you may get pretty good deals on if you don't want to go through all the work.

      10/23/16     Central MN      Cold front last week and again this morning brought new ducks into central MN. Mainly observed migrating flocks of ringnecks, wigeon, gadwalls, canvasbacks, and mallards--calendar migrators from ND and southern Canada most likely. Had a few good days of duck hunting from a boat on a couple mid-sized shallow lakes. It is that time of the year for calendar migrators. Any time you can get out over the next couple weeks during or the day after a strong west or NW wind, or the day after a cold, clear night with a light westerly wind go for it. Soon these ducks will blow through and we will be waiting for the hardy Canadian ducks that stay just south of the snow and ice line. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Brian, That certainly can not be a good thing for Vermilion! I have not seen it that bad on Big Bay yet. Cliff

      I was back up to morris yesterday oct 22 fished afternoon for about 3 hrs. in 17 to 19 feet caught about 25 walleye and sauger mix average size about 10 in. only 2 keepers. Lots of boats everyone was catching fish. I'm guessing I missed as many as I caught. Stinger saved the day!
