There are plenty of eyes left in Plantan. The winners of the tourny had just over 19 pounds for 5 fish, some very nice fish.

Yes there are plenty of walleyes left in plantang. My wife and I caught at least sixty during the tournament. Started the day with 10 scoops of shinners and let 7 minnows go after weigh in.

Saw plenty while walleye fishing. Have not heard much from the anglers though.

I'll be heading up there the first week of August. Haven't been out there that time of year before. Any pointers?

      How big are the hooks you're using, wookie?   Make sure they're big enough, especially if you're using big minnows.    I also use heavier line than most people (10 lb flouro) on our rattle reels so I can set the hook with a bit of gusto without worrying about breaking off.  I might get a few less bites than my friends using 4 lb or 6 lb test, but in the long run I bet we both get the same number of fish on the ice.

        Lighten up Francis!  LOL!  It was a blanket statement.  We see it all the time.     If you wanna get away from Sillytown, keep on fishin!

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
