Big fish

6 posts in this topic

Well has any one een out fishing lately. Ive been doing a little wading and have been gettin some really nice fish. Not a whole lot for numbers but they have been nice. Between yesterday the day before and this morning ive gotten 5 over 17 and the biggest one was 19.25. Then i got another 19 and a 20 about a week and a half ago. I was going to take a picture of the biggest but my moms camera is broken so i got to get a different camera. But any ways they have all be in less than 2 feet of water chasing minnows and crayfish. They have been hitting topwater and soft plastic jerkbaits worked right under the surface. So if the boat dont float get out there and walk. grin.gif

Fished the river today and had a numbers day but nothing big. Biggest was only about 16.5 of two dozen fish. Using mostly tube jigs.

If you can find a place wading is the way to go. Between two of us we caught 20 or so smallies in about 3 hours yesterday, the biggest was about 17, but a lot of fish and a blast had by all.

Wading is all I've ever done in the river but this year my usual stretches have not been producing much. I've made some trips up to Elk River. I'm still shoppin' around.

Theyve just started picking up here below the dam in brainerd now that theyve cut off some of the water flow. Caught a 19.5 and some smaller ones, all on poppers. The best is still to come boys.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
