fall... the leafs changing, its starting to get cool.  rivers are more stable.  and i'm usually chasing walleyes.  boat, shore, i'm happy regardless. 

spring fishing is great but the river fluctuates alot, its muddier, and i'm generally lamenting that ice fishing is over.

Fall. Days are cooler, the sun isn't beating as directly on you, leaves are turning, and the stripers start hitting hard...:)

Hmmm...spring is pretty good. But so is fall. Winter is pretty good too. Summer also has it's moments.

Not even a contest that winter is my favorite time of the fishing year.  Nothing beats getting out on the ice and pursuing fish.  Fall would be second as the air is getting crisp, the leaves are changing color, and the fish are moving back to the shallows.  As far as favorite fish to catch, I enjoy chasing rainbow and lake trout, as well as perch and bluegills.

Early summer for me. Most fish are feeding heavily and are more predictable! Love getting up early and watching the sunrise while on the water!

Fall time..........no swatting bugs, no cottonwood, lack of algae, lack of other folks on the water.

For me early season! I would love to start fishing the fall but when bow season comes I want to hunt ever chance I get! But after this year, I think I'm going to make a rule about not bow hunting in till October 20 when the pre rut starts!!!

I like any time I can get away from end of June to mid Sept. Many a night time jaunts, lakes are dead still most nights Me being the only person out there. Walleye and bass seem to like the night to hunt also.

I have favorite times for different species. As far as fishing goes, the year progresses thus:

January - trout through the ice

Feb - trout, or panfish just to pass time

March - panfish, chores

April - chores, panfish

May - walleyes

June - everything, but muskies start to take hold

July - chores, recreational boating, muskies

August - muskies

September - muskies

October - muskies, walleyes

November - (deer)

December - walleyes

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
