As the temps start falling

7 posts in this topic

I may be jumping the gun a little bit here especially with the higher temps this week but once the temps start cool where in the lake are the larger bass going to start relating?

Last fall all I heard was how good the fishing was but the few times I got a chance to make it out myself I ended up getting SKUNKED! Now i'll chalk it up to inexperience and the fact the I was still looking in the same spots that held fish during the dead of summer.

So what do you guys look for as temps start cool?

Thanks

Go to the gunk and chuck a frog. My favorite time of the year. A lot of species of fish will move into the shallower water chasing baitfish and other amphibious creatures. Late September to early October is the best time of the year for frogs IMO. There will probably be some on the deep weed edge still as well but most activity will go shallow from my experiences.

yup polar said it go shallow and stay shallow. all the frogs are coming back into the lakes and bass walleyes and northerns are all up chowing down. docks are usually a good bet too.

Weeds, pads, any shallow cover really. These areas seem to be kicking out small bass right now for the most part, but as the water cools they will produce better quality fish.

I have found that the late fall bite is more of size time than a numbers time. I have found it hard to catch fish in the fall just as it is in the mid summer, but the big difference being the size. Biggest of the year last year was in october, pushing 7bls...we casted for 3 hours to catch that one fish.

I guess I'm one of the few that goes deep in the fall. Rock piles in 15-25' are where I catch my Hawgs.

You always fish deep Medman. You always catch hog bass to bastage. I still haven't fished Medicine at all this year.

Fall time for me on lakes can be hit or miss. Plus I've heard people say they school up. In rivers forsure, but in lakes I haven't. It's always one here one there type deal. I mainly stick shallow though period.

FALL!!?!?! We still have about a month left of summer. I still think the bass are 2-3 weeks behind their usual schedule this year with the late spring.

I think the bass start getting off the deep weedlines and rock piles in the fall. Polar said it best, get shallow and start chunking a dean rojas frog!!

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
