COULD USE A LITTLE HELP!!

6 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to the "Big-V" in three weeks with a few guys. I've never fished "V" before. Apparently we are parking our houseboat in the south west side of Pine Island.

I would first like to catch some walleys, then small mouth.

Does anyone have any ideas where to fish around that area, and what to use?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

KC

You could read the last few weeks of this board, paying particular attention to Cliff and a couple of other folks. Note the pictures of large bass. Then buy a map.

HAVE FUN AND WELCOME TO VERMILION

Things that are working now may not be in 3 weeks, like they said prior watch for Cliff Wagenbach to post and he will steer you in the right direction. I was at the cabin for 4 days over the weekend, and I found that the Walleyes I was catching were in the 26fow area in the sand. It was windy and had to put out 2 drift socks (hint) to keep the boat slow enough, I dislike fighting the wind with my trolling motor, actually I pretty much drifted for over an hour with no other boats around. Net result was I caught 6 and kept two for dinner. The two I kept were just under 17".

Good luck and enjoy your stay at Vermilion. Darrell Larson.

You may also check out my web page www.vermiliontackle.com as I am trying to keep a weekly post of how the fishing has been going and what people are using. I hope this provides some benefit to you.

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
