Pointers for the west side

5 posts in this topic

I'm bringing the family up for a week at Whispering Winds resort on Sunset Bay this Saturday. I've never been on Vermilion before and the kids want to go fishing, a lot. Any advice or pointers for where my 9 and 10 years girls can catch some fish? I'm not looking for a secret hotspot unless you want to share privately, but more for a place to keep them interested and active. Walleyes would be great but they are not picky.

I have a "Fishing Hot Spots" map and a handheld GPS but the fishing boat with the Vex and camera is staying home. My only electronics will be the depthfinder on the family boat.

I normally fish walleye up the Gunflint Trail and smallmouth on the Mississippi here at home. I should have the tackle to handle about anything but it is a huge lake. Can anybody help narrow things down?

Thanks in advance!!!

you will like it at whispering winds...ron ,jeremy and margeret will take good care of you...jeremy will fill you in on the muskie thing for sure...go with a lindy and half a crawler or a leech...look for weedlines and sand with some gravel....near deep water....the fish are really starting up on the west end.....also any flat near deep water is good.......gills are everywhere.as are bass.pike should be in the weedbeds...with a chance for a good one...good luck and set that hook!

      Only thing I can add is was told the same thing (ACL) on my British lab.  She was hobbling about and surgery was the only option and would be 2-4 thousand.  I live in Grand Forks so the price is pretty standard.  I spoke to a friend who had a springer and was told the same and he rested her for a month.  We opted not to pursue surgery and kept her from running and jumping off the dock for a month and now you wouldn't know anything was wrong.  Had spoken to a few friends who have done the same and the dogs are all none the worse for the wear.  Just an option and I would have paid if it was life or death because I do like my dog
