As the year goes by and the summer grows short, children start the dreaded school year, and people are starting to pack up cottages, and trailers. Most people tend to think that the open water fishing season is quickly coming to an end. Well I’m gonna tell you that when it comes to the fishing walleye in the Fall months, this can be, and usually is some of the best fishing times of the entire year.
Here on The Bay Of Quinte we are just gearing up for the busiest time of the year. This is the time of the year where many people flock to the Region in hopes of landing a trophy walleye of a life time, A true worthy wall mount. The best time of the year to catch those monster eye’s is between October and the end of November or until the ice no longer permits you to get out on the open water.
As the temperatures drop drastically throughout the fall, the walleye migrate from the open water of Lake Ontario into The Bay Of Quinte, in preparation for the Spring spawn, and the fishing gets better and better. This is a perfect opportunity to get out and catch that fish you were looking for all summer long. it is not uncommon to see many fish from the 9 to 13lbs range on a daily basis, and even up to 15/16 lbs can be caught frequently. But don’t be fooled, even though many of these fish are caught daily Quinte is a master at the ultimate tease.
I have been out for days at a time with great numbers of fish on the graphs, and on our lines, and just when you think you are a master at catching these finicky fish and you cant do anything wrong, you go out the next day and they have all disappeared on you and you need to start from scratch finding them again.
I am on the fish year round have many producing spots around the Bay, so if your one of those people that figure the fishing season is over in September and put your boat away for the winter but wish you could get out on the water during this time, then give me a call i’d be happy to book you a trip out this Fall. Who knows maybe i can help land that personal best Walleye you’ve been dreaming of.
