vermilion newbie

4 posts in this topic

I am going to fish Vermilion this weekend for the 1st time. We are planning a houseboat trip up there next year and want to take our 1st wack at the lake to familiarize our self with the little bit of it we will see. We are coming down from Myrtil on fri and will probably start out on the west end unless somebody has a better idea. We will be fishing wallys and some pannies i suppose. Any body out there with some tips. I don't need you secret spot or anything just some general tips on a good place to start and whats working up there recently

Here on the East end jigs and lindy rigs baited with leeches or crawlers are wotking best for walleyes.

Cranks are also working well in the mornings and evenings.

Thanks Cliff, Any word on depths and typical hideouts during various times of day?

Troll cranks in 6' to 12' or 17' to 20' ranges.

Pitch jigs into 1' to 6' weed or rock edges or fish them at the bottom of rock reefs where the rock meets the mud line.

Lindys have been working well in depths up to 42' for me.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
