I am heading down to the river tonight and I have never fished it this time of year so I am not sure where to start. I imagin that the same tricks I was using early in the season by presscott have changed and I will need to chase them down. We are heading out after work and hope to find some smallies and an eye or two if they will bite. I am thinging of tossing some buzz baits and shadraps. Firetiger worked earlier should it still? Also not sure about switching to lindy's and spinners after plain gumball jig worded so well earlier.

Had good success with dive-to's in baby bass color.

For smallies it's hard to beat a tube jig, darker colors seem to work the best...have a rod rigged up with a topwater of some sort as well, like a chug bug or pop-r...towards evening get check out some sand flats for smallies and whities bustin minnows on the surface.

For eyes crawler or leech on lindy or a crawler spinner should do the trick. Jig bite should pick up a bit later..

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
