I'll be west of cyrus a little ways. Some public land that's really good, and I know a farmer that has CRP bordered on 3 sides by public land and corn on the 4th side. Guess where I'll be hunting...........

Kind of down and out right now. Two hours ago I took my lab out for a bike ride and a neighbor's dog t-boned him while in a full run and bit him in the abdomen (over a two inch tear)...looks like I shot him with a broadhead. Just trying to get a good workout in before opener and now we have to wait til it heals. The wife and I stapled him shut for the night and will get him stitched good tomorrow

Muzzy Sorry to hear that. I know the feeling thought. A few years ago, my pup got hit by a drunk driver at 5 a.m. opener morning. The driver swerved into the yard and hit the dog and drove off. It's a good thing the cops found him before I did......

Not a cool story to hear. I hope they hit the drunk driver hard with fines not that it would help your loss at all.

I'll hopefully get out in a couple of weeks...going to Marshall/Ruthton area...hope there are some birds left!

Good luck to all

Muzzy

I'll be about 100 yards outside of my back door.

Prairie living has at least one perk.

Just to give all you guys heading towards Willmar a heads up. While driving to and from work (Glenwood to Willmar) I have not been seeing any birds. Because I am so friendly I thought I would pass this along and give you guys time to change your plans. I would hate to think of you guys driving all this way just to get a good walk.

Of course if you do head this way and see a few guys hunting over black labs wave it might just be me.

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      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
