I don't fish for them, but one glommed on to a pesky perch I was pulling in on Norwegian Bay.

Not a reliable judge of size, but from the quick look I got b4 he parted my walleye snell, I'd say maybe just under 35-inches or so.

Pesky perch steal my walleye bait, and pesky muskie steal my pesky perch! What's a girl to do?

Theres no doubt that the increased fishing pressure has caused many of the muskies to change location. I was on the lake last monday night and counted 20+ boats just in big bay tossing big baits. Anything with a buoy on it had a boat fishing it. I have been having some luck finding fish in places you normally wouldn't pay much attention too. I had a nice fish come out from under an old boat house on one of the islands last week chasing a bucktail I was throwing at the rock point next to it. Just start exploring and if it looks like it could hold a fish...toss a bait at it. Good Luck!

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
