Foliage and weekend fishing?

8 posts in this topic

I am curious how the leaves looked this weekend and how the walleye fishing was? I am coming up next Thursday-Sunday and hopefully the leaves will still be brilliant and the fishing will be good. Any insight would be welcomed!

PSU,

The walleye bite was fairly good if you kept moving.

The leaves should be almost at their peak color when you get up.

Maples have pretty well ran their course. Some color yet but not like it was earlier in the week. Lots of wind took most to the ground early. Ash and birch are changing but still more green than any other color. More wind coming so will see. I haven't had time to fish but customers are reporting little trouble finding fish. Should only be getting better.

The Walleye action is very good. Just got back from a week at the cabin and boated lot's of fish every day. Easy to find them and catching them with a jig and minnow. Only problem for me is lot's of small stuff and it takes a while to catch a limit of legit keepers. Heading back this Thursday for another 10 day stay.

PSU,

Walleyes are going good after you find them, and the leaves look great!

We had good steady fishing from 8:00 am till about 2:30 pm when the bite quit. The leaves were stunning and the warm temps made it all the better. The wind has been blowing here in Duluth all week and the leaves are starting to fall. The popple trees are still green. I'm headed back to Vermillion Sat. Rain and wind are forcast.

      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.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      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.
