13 PERMS on the Creamery pond In Luverne!

12 posts in this topic

This has got to be a record! It must be the gas prices? I just wish the fish would start biting a little bit better. I think Rock County needs a lake. Wounder if they would start delivering mail on the pond? It looks like shantyville! cool.gif

Everything has been slow at the creamery, just started catching some small crappies the last few nights, no keepers but I have had some action. There has been some nice northerns caught out of there. Taking a night off will be back on thursday night. Hey TUK haven't seen at the pond for a while, working on the house or been fishing some where else?

Caught about a four pound northern tonight heck of a fight but that was it, oh ya I guess some bottle bass. None the less it is still fun being on the hardwater.

Looking for recommendations for a portable ice house. I've checked the websites and am partial to the clams that fold over and have the bench seats..but I can't pull the trigger until I get some other opinions. Iv'e read about cracking windows and tearing seams and faulty zippers etc. etc. whats a good brand for SW MN ice fishing?

Now is a great time to get a portable with season closeouts.Frabill has put velcro on their windows making them a snap to replace. If you fish alot during the below temps can you put up with dripping frosty ceilings.A suitcase style house with a floor will tend to make you not as portable.A flip over lets you move around way more.I have an eskimo lodge and it worked well for me.Even in below temps,but the ceiling got very frosty,I found myself not moving very often.The lodge will sit now because i bought me a frabill r2 tec model 300 flip over.Now i will be moving around alot.

Top-o-the-line flip over would be Team Otter.

Clams & Frabills make decent flip overs and cabin styles.

Eskimos, Sharpells, Pak Shaks, etc.. seem to be of lesser quality but do the job too.

I have an Otter Cabin and it rocks. It's a great one man or one adult and a kid house. If I were in the market for a porty Otter would definately be my first choice.

If you got the money make the investment and get the X2 clam. Thats just my opinion but the times I have used it it has been great. Otter has a great set up as well, I went for long term investment. Have not heard that many bad things about the X2 other than it is a little heavy. I've pulled it by hand and it wasn't that bad as long as your not going a great distance. I have a wheeler to pull it when I want to run and gun, works great! Hope you find something that works for you, this will be the time to buy, good luck.

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
