13 posts in this topic

Yeah my partner, Matty, decided to put away his fishing stuff so he could focus on hunting which starts this saturday... but the thing here is that Im not ready to do that... so if you need a partner... for muskie fishing... let me know... date, time, and location... I'll meet you there... I'll be more than happy to help you out with gas for boat, etc etc... I'll travel as far as Forest Lake, Lake Waconia, or French Lake... wherever it takes me in my search for my first-ever Muskie... whether it be 2007 or not... Just email me at rebel9921@tmail.com Thanks!!!

Rebel, You mean you haven't hooked up out there yet? The bite on Forest will stay good right through September and into October. Maybe you need to talk to matty and borrow his boat while he sits in the goose blind!

What bite??? I was out on Forest last week, and nothing... zip... zilch... we fished all over Lake 1... Where are those good bites you are talking about??? I could ask Matty but I dont think I'd feel comfortable doing that... not my boat... I accidently break something... will he forgive me??? thats the thing... its his boat... so better off to go with him... besides... I dont have a problem with him wanting to hunt... just what he wants... no pressure for him from me... Oh wait a minute... are you the guy Matty and I talked to on the dock one day???

King... yeah... Im still waiting for you to get back to me on the boat rental thing... or for you to bring back your boat from your cabin!!!

As far as the boat rental, I have forgotten what you wanted me to find out! I thought we had figured everything out. As far as my boat, I won't be going to the cabin until October 20th.

I am he, the guy on the dock. The fish are biting out there and have been most of the last month and a half. Speed troll bucktails over the tops of the milfoil or just out in the basin and you should hook into something eventually. If you want to cast for them then those spots I pointed out have fish on them and do hold fish but don't limit your search to the deep or shallow edge, cast paralell to the weedlines and look to the areas that have adjacent flats with access to deep water and that should get you into something toothy. Jerk baits aren't a bad option this time of year either.

King... you were supposed to find out the costs and the times, remember the plan to do night fishing???

Tunrevir... it was great meeting you!!! Matty and I practically covered all over Lake 1 except for the middle... and no muskies... Maybe 2007 isnt my year... I honestly dont know... I will know for sure once I hit Mille Lacs this weekend... whether I get the monkey off my back or not this weekend, we'll see... but hopefully what I learn from Mille Lacs, I can apply/use at Forest Lake sooner or later... Probably wont fish at Forest again til next year or Matty's in mood for some muskie fishing... who knows...

they don't allow the boats out after an hour after dark or before 7:30 a.m., and the cost is $25 for the first 2 hours and $7 an hour after that, with a 2 hour minimum. I'll call again tomorrow and double check, but that's what they told me last time I called.

Kingfisher, where are these rates from?? That is rediculous for boat rental rates. Unless it is got a decent sized motor included, that is pretty high. I am a parks manager in wisconsin just on the border and we rent our boats out for $7 for the first hour and $3 per additional hour after that. There is no minimum either. The lake is only 40 acres, so motors are not permitted, but I can row across the lake in 4 or 5 minutes so it is not a big deal. You can also bring a trolling motor if you want. It is also loaded with rainbows and huge bass. Drop me an email, I will clue you in more. You have my email!

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      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

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
