I have not been out in the st. cloud area for awhile. Just wondering if there are any recomondations for a morning or day time walleye bite. Any recomondations would be appreciated.

The chain has been kicking out fish during the day. Some very nice ones as well.

I'd give the river a try, this time of year has always been the best for me out there. Find the holes between the Rice bridge and the old Pirate's Cove.

Definately give the chain a shot!

Thanks guys, both options sound pretty. I would assume that during the day live bait is probably the way to go?

St. Cloud Walleye: Where is the Old Pirates Cove? Never heard of that one before? Years ago I used to go to SCSU and used to fish the river a lot but I have since moved to the cities and don't get up there much anymore. I am seriously thinking of going back in a few weeks though.

The Pirates cove used to be a few miles north of Sartell on the east side of the river.

It's just south of Gordens bridge. I belive it's going to be a housing development now.... My normal spots on the river were difficult to fish a week a go that current is nasty. Haven't been able to make it out latley gearing up for rifle season and trying to seal the deal with bow yet. I have to wait another 2 weeks to hit the river again. Good luck grin.gif

      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.
