fall transition

4 posts in this topic

any suggestions on the help in chisago area lakes for fall transition. last week fish still deep on rock and hard spots. spent monday on chisago and found one out of 5-6 rocks that had summer fish on them. did manage about 15-20 bass with some nice ones(3-5 range),but not like it is in the summer time. water temp 74-76. this time of the year they start to scatter but it amazes me how fast the fish move or shut down on the deep stuff.

huh. well alright. later in the cooling process the deeper fish start to move shallow in the pads, slop, wood and docks. flipping pads gets a lot better with the weeds dying off. i also slow drag jigs on the remaining weeds left(not very much or good ones around here). also the usual throwing reaction type baits along the bank. but i find it hard when the fishing is so good during the summer, but struggle in the spring and fall.

I think this fall is going to be different then in the past years. With the water temps not being what they should be and the lack off weeds on lakes the fish didn't seem to make it out as deep as they normally do. I'm not sure what this will do to the fall bite, but I think it might move them up a little earlier as they will not have as far to travel. The other option is for them to just stay out where they are (which is not as far out as they should be) until really cold water hits. Could be interesting fall.

sicheneder- I dont think the fish have moved from their summer haunts yet. You may have just fished some tough weather pattern... Keep in mind also, this year if very strange in that at least in the Chisago Lakes area out lakes are as low as I have ever... EVER seen them. So, the deep spots really arent deep spots any more. I have caught fish this year in areas I wouldnt even think of fishing normal years.

Fall is time for shallow rocks, and inside(green) weed bends... Dying pads as well... but were going to need some cooler temps before that starts to happen...

    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
