Halad - fall fishing

Recommended Posts

Halad.
Its just about that time of year again for the fall fishing extravaganza. How does your schedule look like for September and October. Being retired, everyday is a Saturday for you but its a full-time job keeping tabs on Kelly, I'm sure.

I'm going to take a week off again this fall for some quality fishing. I figured I'd hit my lake for a couple of days and then spend a couple days up in your neck of the woods. The one day we made it out last year was a good time. As I recall we about limited out on bottle bass and caught a few bonus crappies too. Maybe the wind will be in our favor this time around. I can smell a fish fry in the air. Maybe we can get Kelly and Littleitaly over to join us this time.

Kelly,
Were you ever able to locate your ice fishing rod in the bottom of the lake after the crappie pulled it down the hole? How about your tackle box? Did you finally get it returned to you? We got some catching up to do. Its been way too long since I've been up to visit. Maybe in the next month or so.

The tackle box did turn up. It appeared that someone sailing with the Captian had left it on NINETOES kitchen floor. A rod did come back up from the bottom in that house two days later but it wasn't mine.
A fishermen brought his grand children up fishing last winter. A 5 year old and 2 6 year olds,,,,for 3 days!!!!In the sleeper!!! The kids lost 2 rods in the first 20 minutes but then got them both back at the same time when a 5 inch perch tangled the line it was caught on with both the other lines.

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      To bad HSO doesn't have something like this for the Leaders board Top Members contributions. 😕

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?

      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
