What is working?

Coming up on Thursday to hit the east side (staying at everett bay lodge) wondering what bait the walleyes are hitting on? Any tip's on Depth would be helpful also. I will also post results when I get back.

I have been using both jigs and Lindy rigs this week.

Minnows have accounted for most of my fish. Pike suckers and chubs have been working for me, but if you can get big rainbows they are the best bait. Crawlers are also catching a few walleyes yet.

12' to 30' of water has been the best depths the past 2 weeks for me.

Mr. Manners,

I just returned from a long weekend at the casino campground. The walleye's I found were on Main Lake Big Bay flats in 16-24 feet of water. I caught many keeper fish using 3-4 colors of leadcore and small crankbaits when windy and switched to bottom bouncers and spinner-crawler combo when calmer. The bottom bouncer spinner setup caught lots of fish including a 27 incher, 24 incher several 17-19 inchers and limits of eater 15-16 3/4 inchers. Good luck. Water temps were 62-64 degrees.

Thanks,

I have heard some rumblings that daisy bay may be producing so we will see. I have about 12-14 dozen crawlers left from a flat I brought to Canada so i will try those and pick up some rainbows.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
