Hey all!

Making my first trip to a cabin on Vermillion. Never been, never fished. Looking for any reports or hints to catch some walleye and musky. mostly depths to fish and any help in pointing in some general directions to start would be awesome.

Thanks guys

On the East end most of my fish are comming out of 19' to 30' of water this week.

Jigs/minnows or lindys/minnows.

We were just on the West end of the lake and we caught our walleyes in 25'to 35' fow, using jig and minnows.Hibbing Point is a good place to try if you are on the west end. No luck on the muskies though.

On the east end we were hammering them in a 24-28 foot hole off of an Island. We were using the (I tie my own) northland spinners (w/glow in the dark beads) that look like a fish and #6 chartruese gamakatsu hooks. 4 foot leader. 1/2 oz no snag sinker. From morning till 5pm they bit hard when trolled fast with a shiner minnow. Then at night we switched to 2 foot leaders with chartruese rattle bead and chubs in 10 feet of water.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
