First timer coming up next week with the family to White Eagle. Hoping to put the kids (and me) on some Walleye, small mouth action, maybe a northern or two. Any ideas on where we should start? Fished Rainy a few times...Should we fish Vermillion similarly?

Cliff Wagenbach is the person you should contact, that is if he does not respond to your question here. Shoot him an email, he is a moderator on FM.com, and an outstanding guide on Vermilion, click on one of his posts and I am sure you will find his email address, with a little looking. He is more than willing to give you information. Tell him Darrell told you to contact him, wait better not say that, he may not respond at all grin.gif Good luck, never fished Rainy, but I would imagine they can't be that much different. Have not been up for a couple of weeks, so can not give you a current report.

If you see me at the dock (blue-over-tan Smoker with Evinrude ETec on back) or at the "Prairie Schooner" RV, stop and say hello. I'll let you know what's been working (or not) for me.

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
