Nisswa Guides Fishing Report

1 post in this topic

We are seeing some tremendous summertime fishing! The bass fishing is outstanding on most of our lakes. We've been fishing mushroom head jigs and Gulp plastic worms. Pitching up along the deep weedlines and fishing back fairly slow has been very productive. Casting Rapala DT's is also been producing some nice largemouths. Like I said, any lake you want to try should be good for bass.

The pike fishing has been absolutely awesome over the last 10 days or so. Slow trolling a spinner rig tipped with a sucker minnow has been nailing lots of pike, including some real trophies. The Whitefish Chain has been very good for big pike.

The walleyes have been a little slower. There is still some activity on Whitefish along the weedlines in 15 to 20 feet of water. They are a little inconsistent and it seems like the bait of the day keeps changing from Redtails to nightcrawlers to leeches. I guess just take a little of each and see what happens.

The crappie and sunfish action has been great. Small jigs and plastics, leeches, and worms have all been producing some nice fish.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
