Tough day on the Rainy for me, started out by the gap where the wind was supposed to be out of the south, well it was NW and blowing good, loaded up and went to Clementson, yes the flow is strong, water muddy and full of debris, challanging caught a couple, but hopefully things will calm down and can get a quality trip in before ice time., but what a nice sunny day on the water!

one more thing to add, could not believe the number of boats fishing on the canadian side, now I know they may all have ontario licenses, rabc's no live bait or could be canadians but i doubt it, they take people down in the spring hard! so beware!

It's really a challenge getting a reliable wind report up here. If they get the direction right, the speed is way off.

In defense of the weather dudes though, have actually seen the wind do a complete 360 in a days fishing on the lake. The lake effect is very real.

There appears to be a weather "seam", somewhere between Vidas Landing & Frontier Landing on the river. Wind will be blowing up at Clementson and down at Frontier. Any body else see that?

Well I was talking to muskie partner about it and your experiece with the muskies right off your dock and it peeked his intrest. So if you could e-mail me some info on the island, when you get a chance and you guy get everything worked out, we are looking for somthing between early Aug. and early sept. At least 4 nights if not a full week. My e-mail is walleyeguy2006@hotmail.com

      Well I've traveled all around northern MN. As far as fishing goes lake vermilion in northern MN that's a place that's fits what your looking for. Lodging I'm not sure about. Your staying for a week so anywhere you stay is going to be expensive due to length of stay but a lot of resorts offer discounts for staying so many nights. Hope this helps you narrow your decision.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
