New Years Report

1 post in this topic

Happy New Year!!! Just got home from 4 days on the pond. We fished Friday on the northern point of Wigwam Bay and only caught two keeper perch. Didnt see any eyes on the camera so we moved to the shoreline break just South

of Curlys flat -- that was a pain in the back , butt and everything else. We got set up on Saturday afternoon and put the camera down , seen a few walleyes and a couple of big northerns and lots of small perch. We did get a 34" northern a 22" walleye and a 13" perch. I did see a fair amount of fish on the camera but they just would not bite.

My brother in-law went out to Shermans but did not catch anything but he kind of sucks at fishing. Hope to gt the big house out to the flats next weekend but I wouldnt bet on it.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
