Report from Wednesday 6/13

Had a good day yesterday. Put the boat in at Cedar Creek and fished by Hennepin Island. That access is VERY shallow. Picked up a small one there, and then it got too windy for the boat we were fishing out of. We took the boat out and trailered down to Isle, and I was glad we did. The wind was coming from the southeast. We found a good drift just outside the Isle access and to the west, maybe 20 yards or so off the bouy markers that are along that shoreline. 17 - 19 feet deep was the ticket, dragging a leech with a 6 foot snell and red hook. Ended up with a limit of slot fish from 16-19", a couple that were over (around 22"), and one little dink. It was a great day to be out.

Awesome!!!!!

I probably had my best day ever for big fish yesterday grin.gif

Fished the mud. Leeches.

Caught one 28 1/4", (released and personal best). one 27", five between 26 & 26 1/2", Two of us caught 19. (I was on fire catching 15). Only kept two 18 inchers. The other 6 fish I caught were between 22 & 25".

Used my G. Loomis 9ft med action Steelhead IMX spinning rod an an 11 ft snell. Plain red hook and a chart bead grin.gif.

I'll post photos next week. It was a blast!!!! grin.gif We had the camera ready all the time. We kept the fish in the net, removed the hook, took the photos measured and released.

I was like a little kid at Christmas time!!!!

Probably will never have another day like that as far as large fish goes.

Fished the mud tues and wed with my two little nephews, man what a blast. Caught roughly 60 eyes with the majority around 24-25 inches. My nephews couldnt believe it. Also had a muskie on for an hour and twenty minutes finally broke off. Just really nice getting little ones on fish. They had a ton of fun. gl

Thanks for the report. Myself and two buddy's are heading out on the pond for the first time in a long time. It is a bachelor party of sorts. He didn't want to go out to the bars said he would rather go fishing so we are heading out tomarrow morning about about 3:30am should be fishing by 5:30am or so. I bringing them to the flats, is that the best place for that early in the morning? or should we hit up some gravel? at about 9:30am or so if we are of rocks or a reef I think we will head to the flats. Not sure which one as I have never fished them before. I have a GPS with lakemaster chip so finding them won't be hard.

Do I fish on the flat it self or on the edge of them?

I have been heading right for the mud as soon as I get there. Most fish I have found are along the break, top or bottom. Good luck and bring lots of bait.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
