I want to talk about falling for fish. Well, what I really want to talk about is fishing in the fall period. I love the fall. It’s probably my favourite time of the year for a whole bunch of good reasons. I have the whole lake to myself. All the prime spots on this water body, there’s not another boat on them.
Even better still, in the fall fish behave exactly like Black Bears. Believe it or not, a Black Bear will feed for over 20 hours in the fall, trying to gain as much nourishment as possible to get it through that cold winter period.
Well, Walleyes, Smallmouth, Largemouth, muskies, Northern Pike, Black Crappies all do the very same thing. They’re feeding intensively to get them through the upcoming cold winter period.
So, what’s the message? Don’t put the boat to bed too early this fall.
Happy Fish’n,Gord “The Doc” Pyzer
