Heading up this weekend, wondering how things are going. Was up last weekend north of Duluth and turnover had happened and most of the weeds where brown. It was some hard fishing looking for bass tips.

its that time of year when most locals are starting to get into hunting mode and have put the rods away. Jason might still be fishing, i would say the bass and pike should be biting up shallow the eyes will still be on the weededge i would imagine. Jonah

Yes, I've still been out. I had three guide trips last weekend and success was varied dependent upon the lake. In terms of bass, the smallmouth are insane. Potato was good for the big smallmouth, especially last Sunday morning when it warmed up a bit. Largemouth have been active as well. However, Eighth Crow Wing was very bad, the water looked like chocolate milk. But many lakes have been doing pretty well.

Not the best weekend for fishing, 30 mph winds kept us off the lake most of the weekend but still got a good 10 hours+ out there. 2 pike, 1 bass, 2 sunfish, and 1 perch. I tried spoons, spinners, dt's, floaters, shad raps, bobber and sucker, the best comb I found and caught all the fish was a chartreuse 1/4oz. jog with a fathead or leech. Most fish where coming out of 10 - 12 fow and the weeds where brow on most parts of the lake except for the drops. Also the weeds had what looked like barnacles on them not sure what that is. All in all not a bad weekend would have liked more fish but the weather wasn't helpin.

Good luck on the water!

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
