If you mean Valentine I was out there last Saturday for the first time. I caught some sunfish and a couple perch. The fish were very small ~4 inches.

Yeah you're right, Valentine, sorry. Were you fishing in the middle of the lake? Does Valentine hold many Northerns?

This was the first time that I have fished it so I don't know how many Northerns there are. I did see one on the Aqua Vu but I had a tip up out for 3 hours without a hit. I was fishing about in the middle in the North-South direction. There is a map of the lake on the MN DNR website.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.

      Keep on preaching BA.   Just got back from a resort on the river, 3 days fishing. 22 feet of water, they sad they were catching fish. Shacks obviously haven't been moved so far. Obvious tell tale signs.   2 out of 3 afternoons never marked one fish. The other was just a couple. Morning bite 8-8:07   They ran with the pedestrian anglers/corporate drinking groups  'good fishing' reports with their bucket of 1 limit of 10" saugers.   Signed, Disappointed Schnook from Chicago

      Wednesday was a gorgeous day on the lake...for January, anyway.  Starting to move around the lake until the pike move to the North end to start staging for spawn. It always makes for big pike later in the winter. Had some luck with a couple of small Northern pike but got a surprise when I landed a small Tiger Musky. The DNR stock them every other year in Phalen. They have been doing this since the 80's, so there's bound to be some big ones in there.
