A Few Hours On Vermillion...

4 posts in this topic

I fished the vermillion river from shore out of the hastings access on saturday evening and caught the usual handful of sheephead, a small catfish (8 inches) which pricked me pretty good in the thumb. The highlight of the evening was catching a 20 pound snapping turtle...who wasn't even hooked, he was just too stubborn to let go of the nightcrawler. I thought I was reeling in a deadhead up until I got him to the shoreline...thank goodness I didn't have to go in after him.

It looked to be at normal levels, so I'm guessing they got more rain in the hastings area than we did in st. paul. Was definitely as dirty and muddy as ever.

that's a great little spot. I've also caught walleyes up to 24" there from shore.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
