fall transition

Recommended Posts

any suggestions on the help in chisago area lakes for fall transition. last week fish still deep on rock and hard spots. spent monday on chisago and found one out of 5-6 rocks that had summer fish on them. did manage about 15-20 bass with some nice ones(3-5 range),but not like it is in the summer time. water temp 74-76. this time of the year they start to scatter but it amazes me how fast the fish move or shut down on the deep stuff.

huh. well alright. later in the cooling process the deeper fish start to move shallow in the pads, slop, wood and docks. flipping pads gets a lot better with the weeds dying off. i also slow drag jigs on the remaining weeds left(not very much or good ones around here). also the usual throwing reaction type baits along the bank. but i find it hard when the fishing is so good during the summer, but struggle in the spring and fall.

I think this fall is going to be different then in the past years. With the water temps not being what they should be and the lack off weeds on lakes the fish didn't seem to make it out as deep as they normally do. I'm not sure what this will do to the fall bite, but I think it might move them up a little earlier as they will not have as far to travel. The other option is for them to just stay out where they are (which is not as far out as they should be) until really cold water hits. Could be interesting fall.

sicheneder- I dont think the fish have moved from their summer haunts yet. You may have just fished some tough weather pattern... Keep in mind also, this year if very strange in that at least in the Chisago Lakes area out lakes are as low as I have ever... EVER seen them. So, the deep spots really arent deep spots any more. I have caught fish this year in areas I wouldnt even think of fishing normal years.

Fall is time for shallow rocks, and inside(green) weed bends... Dying pads as well... but were going to need some cooler temps before that starts to happen...

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
