Can someone give me some hints on a lake to stay in Mid September


Recommended Posts

I have never been to Minnesota before, and we are planning on spending a week with my family.

I was hoping to sneak out early AM for some fishing before the family wakes up.

I was looking for a cabin that is close to the lake.. And not a huge lake that I have spend lots of time searching for fish.

Any suggestions on other forms or websites to see search?

I did google searches on "cabins lakes Minnesota" and the results were endless.

Hombrewdude,

You need to be more specific of where you'd like to go or where you are going in MN to meet with your family. It would also help if we knew what type of fish you would like to target. We're happy to help but we need a little more info before going forward. cool.gifgrin.gif

Lakes or rivers... doesn't matter to me

I fish for anything..

I will either be taking a boat or renting one

Any part of the state is fine.

So is Wisconsin.

Fishing doesn't matter, I am not picky.

I normally fish for bass.

But have fished for pike in Alaska

I am all catch and release

Mille Lacs can be a great lake in mid September for walleyes, smallies, and some big muskies. There are some 50" plus muskies pulled out of there in the fall every year. The Bemidji area has some good fall fishing as well maybe check on that forum.

Hope this helps!!!

Winnie is also worth considering. Good early fall bite for 'eyes up there!

I 2nd Winnie. Besides being one of the top walleye lakes in MN its loaded with northerns and jumbo perch. We've done well up there both times i've been up this year and we are heading up again over Labor Day.

See you there james walleye! I'll be up there over Labor Day weekend as well. I'll be staying at my parent's house on Pokegama so we may do some "hawg hunting" out there as well.

Are you going too be out on Winnie? I should seriously give you my cell number or something. Myself, my wife, her brother, and his wife will be up there. We decided too take my father in laws 18' lund up there. We'll all fish out of that instead of taking both his boat and my crestliner up. Im telling you when i was up there 3 weeks ago it was spectacular.

I would place a post on the open water area. If your comming to Mn for the first time Go North. This area is more like Iowa but with lake (What did I just say blush.gif).

If you want to see Mn in mid Sept the leaf color north of the Twin Cities will be just around prime. Things really change north of the Twin Cities.

Try further North Young Man.

Good Luck and Happy trails.

By the way Winnie and Mille Lacs are not what I would call small lakes.

I know Winnie isnt a small lake, but its also not a lake that requires a lot of searching too catch fish. That time of year all you have too do is pull a spinner and minnow or jig and minnow in 7-9' of water and you'll catch all the fish you want. Walleyes, northerns, and jumbo perch.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?

      All of us who couldn't be there for opener would love to hear how the fishing was....😉

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
