Is Oct 17- Oct 21st too late to plan a trip?

19 posts in this topic

Personally I would rather take a duck hunting trip this time of year, but I promised my buddy a trip this year. I tried to talk him into a hunting trip but he wont even hold a gun.

Im worried that we might hit the turnover. Do you guys have any favorite fall lakes. I was thinking vermillion, but worried about turnover. I live in the metro, but willing to travel. I just want to get my buddy, who doesnt fish much into some nice action. Thanks

Fall fishing for eyes cant be beat! I have spent many days fishing Winnie, Leech, LOW in the fall and had my best fishing then!

If you're worried about turnover hit a lake that doesn't turn over like Mille Lacs. Not even a concern there and the fishing should start turning on soon.

I'll be on the Cass Lake chain during the same time period.

I don't think it's ever too late to take a trip, as long as there's not ice building, that time frame should line up perfectly for the October Full Moon phase, lots of great choices to be had as already mentioned, Mille Lacs should have a good night trolling bite going if the water temps drop a little more, Winnie, Leech is just a sleeper waiting to explode, just pick some big water and have fun.

I was reading in the weekly outdoor news, that big stone lake near ortanville is really great in the fall. My neighbor has land near there and invited me to use his lodging. I might just go there because my buddy sleeps in till noon anyway. That way I can pheasant or duck hunt till my non-hardcore outdoorsman friend wakes up. Killing two birds with one stone.....pun intended...

LOW/Rainy River. Fish the gap area as well as the river. Many places to stay and the walleyes should be in the river after the shiners good by then. Im headed up in a week or 2 myself.

Thats a great time to go out fishing. I just booked at Appledoorns for the 17th and 18th. Should be an excellent walleye bite on ML. I hope!

Big Stone can be very good. There are some great perch and white bass opportunuties there as well. The hunting is pretty too I hear. wink

I'd hit up the Rainy River. I've never been but have heard some great reports up there this time of year. As far as hot spots, just check the lotw and rainy river forums, there's usually really good updates on there.

    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
