Going to go out Saterday for my 2nd dusk/night fishing trip. Not sure what lake to go to or which fish to target. In elk river there are not many lakes nearby that seem like viable wallaye option this late in the season. The lakes we do have are small, and I worry the "hot spots" have been over-fished. Also, I am curious if it makes sence to go out at evening/dusk to look for crappies spacificly. Any thoughts on some lakes in the elk river area that would be a decent night bite?
I would say if you want to fish for crappies fish till 10. If you want to fish for walleyes start at 10.With the full moon this weekend I would be looking for a HOT! walleye bite starting at about 11 o'clock and going till 4 or 5 A.M. That is if the lake your fishing has a decent walleye population in it.Find a hard bottom break coming out of the deepest part of the lake that flattens out on top at 8 to 12 feet and fish right where it starts to drop down.Any kind of transition in bottom or weeds will be helpful and the more changes the better. GOOD LUCK! P.S.Some of the best full moon fishing for walleyes around is 1 hr. north of you on mille lacs.If you have G.P.S. shoot me a message and I will try to help you out.
