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!

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
