Brook trout lake fishing-Fall tactics

4 posts in this topic

Will be in Ely area Brook trout lake fishing this weekend. Do you usually use worms on a plain hook under a slip bobber. Or would it be more productive to be shallow casting spinners this time of year?

Thanks for info.

I think both would work-could also troll some cowbells w/ a crawler or cast small spoons. Also heard wooly buggers on a fly work well in the fall. I'm new at fall brookie fishing but will be trying some of the same tactics. Oh and planer boards will small cranks.

Location, not lure choice is the key to catching fall Brookies. If you can find them, more than likely you should be able to catch them. The fall season is when Brook Trout spawn, as I'm sure you know. And they must spawn upon underwater springs to be successful. They start hanging out around the springs a month or more before they spawn. Actually they could be hanging around the springs all summer long for water temperature relief. Anyways, locate your springs and you've located your Brook Trout. Throw the kitchen sink at them. If they're on, you'll catch them. If they're not, you won't. I've found that they are on at least one day out of three. Sometimes two, and occasionally three. I use hand tied jigs myself, only because they are easy to fish, they're cheap, and they work.

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
