The Landing Net                             by Darl Black

Don’t give up the landing net! The latter part of October and first couple weeks of Novem-
ber is a time of prime bites. The cooldown of area waters is now under way. Many inland
lakes are reporting temperatures around 60 de-
grees. Increased feeding by bass, walleyes, crappies,
pike and muskies will pick up as water temperatures
fall through the 50s. Steelheads are posed to move
up tributaries in mass if there is enough rain to in-
crease stream flow. Right now some of the best
steelie fishing is along Lake Erie shoreline near tribu-
tary mouths. GO FISH!
