None better than Lake of the Woods. They have a forum on this site. Lots of good info.

Minaki Canada, I just got back from there. Alot of big fish and a lot of good sizes eater fish. There is a slot but there is no problem catching fish in it. Really affordable and a great time. smile.gif

We had a good time fishing and good experience with Ballards on LOTW. That was spring time though. My next far-north-MN trip will be to Rainy, I think. Good luck wherever.

Lac Seul if you can bear the long drive, rainy lake, LOW, would be the ones i went to. I go to rainy every spring and/or fall, and it is amazing. Probably MN's premiere walleye lake, and very scenic, if that's your thing. Better pay attention when navigating around, low water and more rocks. you could stay at Sha-Sha, Woody's, he also guides, many campsites in the park, that is what we do and highly recommend, or do a houseboat. Good Luck fishing

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
