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.

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
