Thanks Doug and Cliff.....past week fishing

5 posts in this topic

Nice to meet you Doug and for showing us around your place. That night after talking to you we started getting into the bigger walleyes every night we caught 2 or more over the slot and plenty of 14-16inch within. Won't know about the fall trip for a while here as the father in-law got into a cycle accident so trip plans are on the back burner for now.

Cliff, I saw your boat a couple times but you were either leaving Bayview after lunch or heading in that direction for lunch. Maybe in the fall I'll catch up with you. Do you know how did the group of dad's and kids do from Chicago? I wonder how many line tangles they had on the pontoon.

Scott26,

Phill Bakken and I guided the group of dads and their sons that were from chicago and staying at Bayview Lodge.

The pontoon boats did not do very well fishing, but all of the group took turns fishing 1/2 day trips with Dave and I and they all ended up catching their limits of walleyes! laugh.gif

They had a great fish fry on their last night there and also had a few fish each to take home.

A great group of boys! laugh.gif

Tangled line are all part of the day! tongue.gif

Scott,

Sorry it took so long to get back. It was great to meet you guys as well. Glad that you got into the bigger fish. The bite has still been pretty good, but the better bite is later in the evening. In fact, right now as we speak.

Hope you can make it up!!!

Doug

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.

      Looking for an unforgettable outdoor adventure this summer? Sign up for one of the I Can! programs offered by Minnesota state parks and trails.   Reservations are being taken for the following beginner-level programs, which start in June and continue through the end of August: I Can Camp! – Develop (or brush up on) fire-starting and camp cooking skills and sleep on air mattresses in tents large enough to accommodate two adults and up to three children ($60 for one-night programs or $85 for two-night programs). I Can Paddle! – Get out on the water for a guided canoeing, kayaking or sea kayaking adventure (prices vary).  I Can Climb! – Experience the thrill of rock climbing with instruction provided by trained professionals from Vertical Endeavors Guided Adventures ($10/child, $20/adult).  I Can Mountain Bike! – Learn riding techniques and explore mountain bike trails with guides from the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Club ($15/child, $25/adult).  I Can Fish! – Kids will have fun of casting into the water and enjoying the excitement when there’s a tug on the line. ($5/person, children under 12 are free). The I Can! series also includes the Archery in the Parks program, which is free and for which no reservations are needed. “Not having the right equipment or know-how can be a barrier to spending time outdoors,” said Erika Rivers, director of Minnesota state parks and trails. “The I Can! programs make it easy for families to enjoy camping and other outdoor experiences by providing tents, canoes, mountain bikes and other gear. Friendly instructors also provide plenty of tips and encouragement so that adults and kids can both have fun learning new skills.” Registration and more information For more information including program dates, times, locations, and minimum age requirements—visit www.mndnr.gov/ican or contact the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).
