The Basics On How To Grill Fish

Grilling fish is a great way to cook fish.

http://youtu.be/ZiIOVnWQDnE

Fresh fish is always best.  Fish should not be fishy smelling. Try to cook the fish the same day you buy it. Pre heat the grill. Brush the cooking grate with oil so the fish will not stick. Firm fish is best to cook such as salmon or halibut. Wash the fish fillet.  Pat the fillet dry with a towel. Then brush with oil. Season the fish (salt and pepper). I like lemon pepper seasoning. Place skin side down on the grill. Cook salmon 3-4 minutes per side. When the fish flakes it is done. Softer fish such as Talapia requires a container such as tine foil. For fish kabobs use firm fish such as halibut. Cube the fish place on Kabob with vegetables. Brush with oil and marinate if you wish.

Good Eatin!

Mid fall begins when shad move up the creek arms about mid 50 F water temp . This begins some of the very best bass fishing of the fall season. Bass are following the shad which following the  phytoplankton , (their food source).  Shad are feeding heavily on the phytoplankton. Phytoplankton get their energy from sunlight.

Early Fall Bass In Reservoirs

How to fish bass in the fall period in reservoirs is di divided into 3 parts ( early fall, mid fall, and late fall). I will cover early fall bass fishing tips in this post.  Summer to fall transition occurs for bass approximately mid  September  to mid October.  When water temperatures drop signals to some of the bass to start the fall migration.

The transition of bass from their summer to fall pattern does not happen at once for all bass.   In reservoirs bass will follow the shad that migrate up the creek arms. Bass will migrate in stages from the deep water , weed lines , shallow slop in the  main lake to the mouths of the creek arms , and then up the creek arms.

Late Fall Crappie And Bass

Late fall crappie and bass. Here in Minnesota we have entered the late fall period. This period is the last open water fishing before ice forms on the lakes. Today is October 15. Ice on the lakes can happen anytime from the first week of November thru Thanksgiving. 

For crappie in late fall look for weeds. When the turnover of the lake happens weeds will start to slowly die. Crappie will relate to the remaining weeds.  I like to use the bobber and jig (a 1/32 green or yellow jig with a 1 inch gulp alive minnow) . Mark the edge of the weeds with a orange marker bouy.

You may have to search for visible weeds or on your depth finder.  When fishing late fall bass look for secondary weeds just outside the visible weed edge. These secondary weeds will be generally 4-5 feet underneath the surface of the water. One method is work the secondary weeds with a shallow running crank bait , running just over the top of the weeds.  A good crank bait such as the Rapala DT6 or the Rapala orginal floater are good choices.

Weeds can be hard to find in the late fall but definitely is a primary choice for both bass and crappie. During the late fall crappie will start to drop down into the deep basins. After checking the weeds. Check out my post for fall basin crappie

How To Catch Fall Walleyes Under The Full Moon

How to catch walleye under the full moon during the fall.

One of the very best time to catch the trophy walleye is during the full moon periods in the September, October , and November months. The full moon is the when the moon shines bright and full in the sky. Waleyes starting about late September /early October need to put on a feed to get ready for the winter period when bait fish are not plentiful. The full moon period at night when skies are cloudless are your best choice for fishing walleye. Walleye will come into very shallow water to feed after dark.

What locations you want  to fish will depend on the lake or river you are fishing. Here in Minnesota shallow rock piles in lakes, rip rap areas in rivers are good spots generally. A good guide as to where to fish at night during the full moon would be to note where on your body of water during the day the fish are biting. Then fish that area and shallower.

Walleye Fall Night Fishing Is Trophy Time

How to catch walleye method for the September to ice out fall period.

One of the very best times to catch that wall hanger lunker walleye is the fall period.  The state of Minnesota  DNR has determined that walleyes bite twice as much as the late summer period. Night time is a prime time to fish for walleye from the shore (or boat).  Specifically from sundown to midnight is best. You want to key in on the following areas: Prime walleye waters (rivers or lakes). Channels between lakes.  Where streams or rivers flow into a lake.  Where streams or rivers flow into a river.   The best lure for fall walleye fishing at night under these circumstances would be a plug such as the original floating Rapala or a shad rap (number 5 or 7).

A headlamp is a must equipment. If you are Fishing  from shore waders may benefit you if you are fishing flat slow tapering area. Waders will allow you to wade out and fish water you would not be able to reach otherwise.  What happens in the fall in these areas I specified above is that after sundown baitfish come into these current / neck down areas to feed.    Guess what follows them are walleye and other predator fish that feed on the bait fish.

A typical night fishing would be to go into an area after sundown and fish a couple hours. Fish your floating Rapala with a slow steady retrieve. You are now fishing the cold water period and the fish are not as active as the summer period. You will find walleye will come into an area after you have been casting without any action and all of a sudden catch more than one fish. From shore keep working an area moving slowly down the shoreline and back again.  Fishing these areas from a boat at night requires organization. Lights headlamp a must and always wear your life preserver. Not uncommon is to catch that 8 or 10 pound trophy walleye.

Crankbait Fishing 101 , The Basics

How to catch fish with a crankbait.

The crankbait. How do fish one of the most productive baits ever? How do you determine what crankbait and color to fish during a particular day? Some use the water color to dictate the color. The clearer the water use a more natural color such as a shad or perch color, Try to match the crankbait color to the forage base of the the water you are fishing, For darker colored water use a brighter color crankbait such as a red , fire tiger,  or orange.

Choose a crankbait for the depth you are fishing.  Start by buying crankbaits for your tackle box  that run at different depths. I particularly like the Rapala DT series of crankbaits. DT stands for dive to then there is a number for depth. Start with shallow running crankbaits.  The Rapala DT6 will run down to 6 foot depth. You can still fish the DT6 in 2-3 feet of water by keeping your rod tip high and reeling slowly. You will know how fast to reel when you feel the lure ticking the bottom.
