Auburn Report

10 posts in this topic

Fished Auburn this evening. Surface temp was 79 degrees. Bass were not hitting plastics, topwaters, spinnerbaits for me. We did pick up 4 on rattle traps, also picked up 4 pike on cranks. 15 FOW. Not a great bite, not the worst. Did talk with a guy that caught a 23" bass. He was pitching the slop.

23"!?!? Well if any lake can do it that would be the one since the record came from there. I love Carver co lakes and tonka to. Can't be bias:)

There are many good bass lakes besides Auburn. That lake isn't the only one in the metro that can produce 23" fish.

I just fished Auburn this morning, caught and released one large mouth - 13". Hooked into a large pike in about 18'FOW on a crank. Bite was slow and water level was down but we still made it to the south side. Saw a large pike in the shallows fish was 30+... This was my first time on the lake, so if anyone has any tip please fill me in, not looking for anyone's honey hole just some pointers...

Can you get through the channel that connects the upper and lower portions of the lake? The last time I was out there the beavers had that thing dammed up pretty good. By the way those beavers a freakin' hugemongous out there shocked.gif

That I dunno, you're talking about 8 lb bass,and it's very rare they grow that big in this state.

Sarge~

When was the last time you saw so many huge beavers! Seriously, I thought they were going to tip the boat!

How 'bout the weeds out there as well, they were thick when the sarg and I were out a month or so ago.

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
