Brief Report

7 posts in this topic

Fished the East end for a few hours midday on Sunday. Was pleasantly surprised at some decent fishing..Got 12 eyes between 15 and 22". Kept 3 16" clones for dinner. All fish were caught on a windblown rock hump. We used 3 way spinner rigs w/hammered gold spinners and crawlers. Quite a few mayflies still around but fish didn't seem to mind..

Shhhhhh! Small metallic color spinners during mayflies..... it's a secret. Don't tell!

That's funny because I gleaned the spinner trick from someone looking for the "infiltrator" spinner kits...Ended up buying some and have really been getting good results with them...Lost quite a few on hungry rocks though...Managed to land a white plastic lawn chair on one too... grin.gif

Are you going to have that mounted or do a fiberglass reproduction?

Left it at my buddies cabin for an "outside mount"...Figured it didn't have many good spawning years left so I kept it. It put up a battle in big waves but wasn't deserving of release IMO.... grin.gif

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
