That's a pretty good lake to start with. I go up there every year in early june and always slaughter the bass...now that it's later in the year they're probably gonna be pushed out from shore a little bit...two island has lot's of main lake structure in the form of rock bars and sunken islands though. I caught all my bass in the shallows inbetween all the islands, but now if you can find deeper channels inbetween the islands that would be a good bet too. 3" power grubs were the ticket, but anything perch colored would be good too. Nearby devil track lake is good too, same tackle will catch all the bass you'll want there. Both lakes have good numbers of eater size 'eyes.

Just troll a worm harness with a leech or a crawler. You won't be able to shake the bass of your line. Two Island is your best bet at catching a trophy. You just might catch some walleyes as well.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
