CK -

I believe I asked this before, but how is the water level on Gun? Still pretty low? Weedlines setting up yet?

The cabbage tips are popping up everywhere.

Just the kind of info I'm lookin' for - are you still finding those crappies on Gun? I suppose the water has warmed up quite a bit by now...in days past, we'd run into a school now and again while trolling for walleyes. Then that cabbage started producing a few as well.

And I forgot to mention the big sunnies we'd catch trolling for walleyes. Wife pulled one in that was a smidge under 11" - I could barely(!) get my hand around it. We both thought she had a decent 'eye on right up until we netted it!

Fun, fun, fun.

even if I knew I could not say.

I've been asked not to mention lakes anymore.

You'll have to privately email me.

palisade1kid@yahoo.com

I was giving almost daily reports.that had to stop.

Now no matter the lake I'll post in Lard lake thread. Feel free to get up with me to see what's what on the water these days.

It sure would be nice to be open about what's going on.

It seems almost worthless making posts nowadays.

Since I'm not seeing responces or questions I'm thinking about using this forum as it was designed which is to give different lake info as it happens regaurdless of the attacks by the few unhappy lake residents.

sorry to be so negative as you are new here,but if you read some of my post in these threads of our area you'll see what I'm talking about.

I'm hoping to make you feel at home and whatever I can do for you ,just name it.

CK in Palisade

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282
