Deadly Fall Fishing Tactics: Walleye & Smallmouth Bass on Lake Kabetogama
Jason Mitchell takes advantage of one of the best times of the year and shares some deadly fall fishing tactics that produce walleye and smallmouth bass in the fall. Classic patterns include deeper offshore structure. Top presentations include jigs and minnows, rigs with big sucker minnows or chubs and glide baits like Puppet Minnows.
Fishing Lake Kabetogama in the fall in northern Minnesota. This northern Minnesota fishery resembles a Canadian Shield Lake with endless options for structure. In the fall, we often find smallmouth bass setup on the top of offshore rock piles and reefs while the walleye will be positioned deeper on the sides of the structure. Kabetogama Lake is a top fishery in Minnesota for anglers looking to target both walleye and smallmouth bass.
These patterns often remain extremely productive through the fall and this period of time often produces some of the best fishing of the entire year for quality fish.
