My grandsons and I just got back from the beach below the rock rapids. The 7 yr old caught a 15 lb channel on gold eye guts. The little guy did one hellava job landing it virtually by himself. laugh.gif

The 11 yr old caught a couple of very small cats.

All went back in the river.

Now that they are finishing off the spawn, they are starting to feed up again. Starting to see some larger fish in the last few days.

I've been having some luck above where the dam used to be. About 150 yards upstream or so. Anyone hook into anything big lately?

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
