new to fall muskies

15 posts in this topic

This year was my our first year actively fishing skies and we loved it. Only boated 4 fish towards the end of summer but towards the end we finally started to get the hang of things. Was wondering what tecniques are used in fall vs. summer? can fish still be found in 4-8 ft or do u have to go deeper? what baits are best? I am a fan of spinners and bucktails for the summer... will be fishing forest lake this weekend. any info would be great! thanks and good luck

check out pages 2,3,4 of this year theres plenty of tidbits. then find last years posts for fall and you'll get more.

personally i like a little deeper water in the fall when i'm on a lake. the narrows on forest should still be good, maybe better without the traffic, and the deeper areas just outside them. don't forget the deep hole to your left just off the narrows when your going from lake 2 into lake 3 on the lake 2 end of the narrows, cover it well. theres a point comming out on lake three just before the bay leading to the public launch. fish that. then directly across the lake theres a nice flats area with deeper water surrounding it. fish that casting the edges. this is all info from years ago but i'm sure it's still good. bigger pike hang out in these areas too.

lures? i'm a spinnerbait fan myself. read the post on ''slow rolling spinners'', don't forget topwaters, jerkbaits and gliders.

ORANGE YELLOW AND BLACK combo

I might recommend a black bulldawg, bigger is better.

Last weekend they were in 5 to 8 fow, right on the weeds. Later in the fall, they will move out to the edges.

If you guys had to thrown one lure, and one lure only, from now until freeze up, what lure would that be?

I have heard good things about Musky Bou Blings by Kevin Cochran up in Bemidji.

buchers slopmaster is my favorite. as is it's great through weeds and blade changes make it work where i need it. i really like the head shape. i strip them down and replace the original hair with angora rabbit wool/deer hair. but you can read the ''slow rolling spinners'' thread for some great info. about a month old now so back a page or two.

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
