Fall Brown Trout Recap

Well, it was another great fall on the Freshcoast, and we enjoyed every minute of it! The big lake once again was the boss, and made it tough on many occasions to get out to the fish, but we managed. We had a lot of wind and cold temps early in October, but thankfully we stayed somewhat comfortable in our 23’ Ranger Bay Boat. I would say the theme for the fall was not big numbers of fish, but rather BIG fish. Those seeforellen browns just keep getting bigger each year, and we are all excited to see what the future of this fishery holds. The big stepping stone for this season was to land a few of these powerful fish on topwater gear. I think we put about 5 or 6 fish in the boat on traditional topwater plugs like the zara spook and a variety of prop style baits. It’s very, very exciting to see one of these big fish explode on the surface, and on some days, it seemed liked the only way to move the fish! Thanks to all who braved Lake Superior in the fall with me, and I hope to see you all again next year!
