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.

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
