I will be attending a family event on Lake Vermilion next weekend but have never fished it. I would like to get my teenage nephews into some smallies. Where would be a good place on the lake to try, depth and which bait may be the best?

Also, which would be the best method for fishing Senko's Texas hook-up?

Thanks in andvance for hopefully making my nephew's trip a memorable one.

We will be staying on Moccasin Point.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. You are staying in a good area for smallies.

Try fishing docks, underwater boulders. Underwater points that extend out from islands. Trees in the water. Logs laying on the bottom. Deadheads in shallow water. I will be up there on sunday (most likely)...I could circle spots on a map for you if you'd like.

Green pumpkin or watermelon senkos seem to work great. I use a #1 eagle claw Kahle hook and put the hook through an o-ring thats placed on the center of the worm (wacky rigged). Me and my son caught over 40 bass last saturday.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
