Will they bite Sat 10/6 with this cold front?

Recommended Posts

Bob O

Does a cold front in October shut down the fishing? I'm hoping to try the West & North areas from late Sat afternoon to about 9:00 pm. Will I need to go deep or will crankbaits still work? Thanks for any ideas. Also, I'll be solo - anyone want to join me?

Bob O - Muskieman??

I was wondering the same thing? Did ok last Sat nite, and was thinking about tonight too.

Muskieman, what's your opinion of the front effect, and is the harbor still full?? wink.gif Sounds like live bait way out did cranks last week too, or was I just in the wrong place? (Hawkbill area)

Thanks,

Gadget

Go to Flamingo and troll crankbaits. Number 7 shad raps are producing alot of walleyes. 3 AM to 4 AM is the best time. Good luck!

Yes. They were biting Saturday night. The three of us managed to keep 6 slot fish and released several 20-26" fish. Friday night was really windy, cold and nasty, but the fishing was good then too. Lighted slip bobbers with red hooks and JUMBO leeches were producing well. 13-15' of water was just right.

Good luck!

I was out on garrison reef on Sunday. The wind was really blowing. My brother and I were able to catch quite a few smaller walleyes...even four in the slot. We were using long snells tipped with leaches.

You guys are killing me! Don't get me wrong, the cabin with Mrs. Gadget was really nice, but I think I messed up and missed one of those "opportunities"! Maybe this weekend........... frown.gif Thanks for the update though, glad you guys were smart!

I did get to go out for a few hours on Sat evening and the bite was good. I caught 2 at 17", a 21" and a 27", and lost one other nice one. Probably could have caught more if I didn't take a 45 minute break during the peak time and didn't experiment so much, trying to improve on the pattern. It was fun, but no one to share a high-five with or take a photo after the 27".

      Could not agree more...; but with Garmin Pan it's a bit cumbersome...

      Yesterday and today the combines got back to work. Hunted a management area next to a fresh picked corn field. Got a couple nice roosters which both flushed at about 15-20 yards. Saw several others that flushed way out in front of me. Not many other hunters out there yet.  Drove past several fields that were just combined today and there were a few places that had some really deep ruts from either combines or the tractors pulling wagons. Didn't see any of the big combines unloading directly into semi's so the ground must still be pretty soft if their not driving the trucks into the fields. About half the combines were in corn and the others getting after beans.  Weather this weekend should a little breezy and cool for Saturday with a high in the low 40's. There's a 30% chance of precipitation for Saturday. Should warm up a bit on Sunday.

      I've run an fl12 for six years now, occasionally it gets noisy but has been doing the job. Last year on lotw we had 4 vexilars going in a small area and even with the different interference settings I got feedback. One guy had a hummingbird 55 ice and had zero issues even when his was shut off still had issues. Maybe when I'm done with school I'll upgrade to something with a GPS and lake map

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg. @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck

      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
