Fished pulaski this am and did fairly well on bass. Must have caught a dozen rock bass, 10 or so Largies with an 18 incher and a few 17s mixed in. Saw 5 walleyes floating in about a 400 yard strech near the north west shore close to docks. Whats with that? Deep hooks, caught deep and not released fast enough. Largest one was proabably 18 inches and the smallest was around 14inches or so... Kinda depressing. Anyone else see these floaters? Not many boats out there at all this am. I really don't like their parking situation they have going there. smirk.gif

There are'nt too many people that would release a walleye of any size on pulaski. I would say warm water bends before hooking mortality. Pretty interesting though.

May need to check on the thermocline. That may have something to do with it?

didn't do so hot... pattern that worked well wed didn't produce yesterday. We ended up in 8th place with two small 13.5 inch bass. Winning weight was 7lbs with three... I had that the day before prefishing with an 18, and two 17's... Oh well. Too much recreation out there. Jet skiers everywhere with very little regard to how close they get to you while your fishing outside weed edge. I can't stand that.

How many boats were in your outing (tourney)? Is there a fee?

I think there was 11 or 12 that night. We have a limit of 15 but have never got that many. Yep there is a small fee. Twenty per boat. There is only two or three weeks left in this league though as they started the thursday after opener.

$20.00 per boat, per week times 10 boat average. Makes for a nice piece of change.

Yeah but we pay out 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, as well as put a certain % away for the final tourny. 2.00 out of the twenty per boat also goes into a cash pot for largest pike of the day. All in all it's really more about pride and for me its a great way to just get better and better. I beleive that after fishing this league the past three summers I have become much more familiar with area lakes and a much more well rounded angler than I would have ever been. I must admit that I've become much more into Bass than I ever thought I'd be. Used to be just Walleyes and pike... Now, probably targeting bass about80% of the time on the water. While I'm here... what do you guys know about Granite lake and specifically the Bass population? Later. smirk.gif

Most leagues I have come across are bass leagues. Even the fishing club I fished with, was more into bass then walleye. Northerns are, just to bad you wasted your time. I liked fishing bass but I eat walleyes so I would there catch eyes now.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser
