October on the Rainy river has to be some of the best fishing in the state.

Hey Slick. it looks like you have a tough choice on your hands...Both of those lakes offer quality fishing as well as other options for day trips to smaller bodies of water. My solution would be to spend a week on each!! smile.gif -nunzio

I'd add the Cass Lake chain to that list. In the same area, relatively little pressure and has a reputation for producing some real pigs in the fall. We've fished it the past two Octobers and have done very well. Not many big fish(8 1/2 lb biggest so far) but lots of good eater fish. Plus a few muskies and pike thrown in for good measure.

We also bring the shotguns along. Very good grouse hunting up there too with lots of public land.

I have to agree with Borch on the Cass Lake chain trip, I've gone with him on a couple of occasions and done well. It's a good thing he can fish because the grouse have nothing to fear from his aim smile.gif

Some very good destinations so far and
I would like to add Lake Vermilion to the list. smile.gif
Excellent fishing for walleye, muskie,
pike and smallmouth bass. After labor day, you can fish for hours and not see another boat.

Except for me of course.... smile.gif

My vote would be for the Rainy River, north of Baudette, in late October. I've been going up there for several years and the fishing is always good. There are BIG walleyes there as well as the occasional sturgeon. A couple of years ago my fishing partner boated two 8+ pound walleyes in under an hour (both released).

I also agree with fishing on the Rainy in October, albeit a bias opinion. I caught my biggest mid-November - a whopping 30" 11 1/4 pounder.

The wonderful thing about the Rainy is you have about 38 miles of river to fish, starting from Birchdale down to LOW.

Good luck in your fall fishing trip where ever you go!!

I would take a week off and fish a small walleye lake that I never fished before thats near to a brook trout lake. Find the fish in both and have a ball. Mind you this would be during grouse and fall color season.
I would even pick blue berries and lay on a sunny bank and fall asleep while looking at a Fall Blue Bird sky.
The Sky is Blue The Sun Is Warm...Ahhh I all ready there.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
