Fishing Report for Sunday 12-16-07

14 posts in this topic

Perch are being caught off of Doe Island Reef. Some size to them but we need to sort threw them to get eaters. 13-15 feet of water has been best. Small jigs with waxies.

Walleye's are out in the deeper water off of the reefs and mud. 30-32 feet of water. Small Jigging Spoons with minnow heads. These 2 fish came from 31 feet of water and were caught with a 1/16 Go Devil and a minnow head. He also picked up a limit of eaters from the same depth.

I was the one that walked out at 7am this morning. My buddy and I also fished Doe Island Reef. We caught perch in about 19-22 FOW. Came home with 12 perch in the 10-11" range. 18' and shallower produced nothing. Some walleyes were mixed in with the perch from 2:30pm till 4pm. Ended up with two 15" and a 19" and my buddy lost a nice walleye at the hole, I could see it and he tried to get him up the hole and bumped the fishes head on the bottom of the hole and the hook came out shocked.gif. I would say the fish was somewhere in the mid 20's. All in all a good day on the lake, warm and barely any wind. Should be back sometime during the week.

Biff,

Thanks for the report. It truly has been a crazy start to the winter...the bite has not been what was expected and has been very scattered and sporadic. Nice to hear that you guys had a good day. smile.gif

Very nice sir. Is that your biggest through the ice? I have never gotten a walleye over 26" through the ice. Then again I really only started hard water fishing 4 years ago.

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      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.
