Will be coming to the lake on the 30th.Staying at Bay View for 11 days. Was wondering what kind of lures and rigs i will need for walleye and smallies. Any help will be appreciated. Normally use crankbaits here in mo for walleye.Thanks for any help

mofisherman,

Welcome to FM and the Vermilion Forum!

Lindy rigs have been working very well for me now.

Cranks are just starting to produce walleyes also.

Check the other posts for bass options. All are good presentations.

Lindy rigs are producing tons of fish for me right now up in the norwegion bay area, went out for an hour and caught 7, only 1 was a keeper, the rest were too big! Crawlers and Leeches are working well right now

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
