where did the fish go?

Recommended Posts

Hey all

 

Hit Chemong yesterday (Sunday) after stopping at Scugog and seeing the water was nothing but mud. Spent 9 1/2 hours on the water looking for skis but didn't even get a hit. Tried everywhere from 4 to 16 fow, mostly trolling from 4 to 2 mph. The water temp. was about 64 and the visibility was decent, a little stirred up but not horrible. Does anyone know where the fish went? We have had success in the summer but whenit comes to fall I usually end up with very little action. Don't know if the fish are just moody or if we are targetting the wrong areas.

fall turnover?

 

I dont really know, dont have a whole lot of experience in fishing the kawarthas in the fall, as soon as she gets chilly the long sticks come out!

i had a heck of a time trying to find the bass on the weekend, but i did manage to get 1. Not sure for the musky, maybe fall turnover like kemper said.....

I'd be fishing more then 16 fow in the fall for muskies.. Steep breaks with access to open water, deep weedlines etc etc. I don't think many lakes have turned over yet, so they should still be in their summer haunts.

Hey BillM

 

You would be fishing more than 16 fow on the Kawarthas? I know deeper lakes would hold fish lower down but on Chemong there aren't too many spots that are deeper than 16 feet, and alot of those spots don't really have steep breaks or weeds, just flat bottom. I thought a fish would swim up 10 feet to hit a bait before they would swim down 10 inches. Just curious
