Vermillion smallmouth

11 posts in this topic

I'm looking to make a smallmouth trip to Vermillion in the next week or so. Will be fishing out of Tower. Am I better off fishing the deep rocks or cabin docks?

Hey WFM, welcome to FM. Good to see you here. grin.gif

Probably you'll get some responses here, but you should also post your inquiry over on the Vermilion board.

Shallow rocks.

I'd also float your post past Deitz's nose, as well as Ray Esbolt's in the bass forums. They're both Vermillion smallmouth junkies.

Regarding docks, I know Ray said that muskies lay under a fair number of them as well, but for the real scoop, talk to those guys and others in the Vermillion and Bass forums.

I will tell you everything you need to know about bass on the east end.

Where to fish=

deeper docks

underwater boulders

underwater rock points (especially out from islands)

cast by any underwater log doesnt matter the depth

cast by dead heads

Proof this works

I've come to the conclusion over almost 40 years of fishing that anglers can be divided into two groups and no other grouping matters: Those who want to smile in pictures and those who want to look tough. grin.gif

Thanks for the info, SledNeck. I'll be using that info my ownself.

It might be a bit different if Jessica Alba was holding the fish, I'll give you that.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
