June 10-12 report. Lost rod as well!

1 post in this topic

Fished with 2 other guys in my boat for about 22 hours over the 3 days. Caught at least 20 keepers and 40 walleyes over 20". Largset was 27 7/8". Best locations were deep rock, had one flat also that was good. Minnows and leeches both worked great at different times.

A buddy of mine lost one of my rod and reel combos he was using. We were at 4 mile rock (north of Sloppy Joe's). He was fishing out of the front of the boat. He sat the rod down, just for a few seconds, to get a drink of water.

A fish hit and took the rod down to the 29 foot depths!

Too bad it was a nice Shimano Calcutta reel,the rod was a modest Cabela's E-Glass though.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
