4 posts in this topic

Ok guys and gal's i wish i could have some better news for you but the bite was just not going for us.It wasnt because we didnt see fish because we seen some big eye's on camera but swim right up to your offering and when i say offering i mean about every rattle jig,every forage minnow,pimple ext,ext we tryed just wasnt working.Yes we had all the baits to ero,waxie,minnows even shrimp none of wich worked any better.The fish seem to be active early morning 6am-10am lots of big eye's swiming that we seem on cam then late 3:30pm-5:30 for us. One thing i never ever had happen to me is we never got one rattle reel go in 3 days a first for me on the pond.We did get a few keepers 3 eyes 16-19 4 perch 9-12. but man we had fun and thats whats its all about. I met Jay a very nice guy he is and yes he does have some nice houses to rent i would do it again from him anytime thanks Jay keep it up a class place you run.In closing i have to say there are fish out there to get them to bite is the challange to see them on cam is awesome but i think i would go else where to fish this ice year because the pond has millions and millions of small perch in it just dope a cam you'll see .Happy fishing to all and i hope come opener this all changes or you are in for a ruff summer up there. cool.gif

No need to be sorry for me LoL just kidding but man its hard to see them big eyes swim up to your bait look at it for what seems forever then just swim away one after another makes for a tuff but yet fun day atleast you know you can jig them up.Im heading to LOTW in Feb. will be given pond another try on the way back from there.

Thanks for the report. Wish things could have gone better for you on your trip. At least you have a camera and were able to see those big eyes. That's got to count towards something, right?

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
