In the summer, yes I do. We have a cabin on the southwest side and I try to make it up any weekend I do not have work related conflicts. I am a junior at SMSU in Marshall, so it is hard to get up often in the winter. I have been up once this winter, and am planning another trip in march. IMO it is the greatest get-away lake in the state. It is so peaceful up there, and the fish bite year-round.

winniewalleye-

Can I ask what resort you go out of? We are thinking about moving our skid house down from Red. We stopped at Denny's and they seemed like they had a pretty well run operation. Just wondering what else there is.

Amen to that winniewalleye. We stay at 4 seasons every year and there is nothing better than being the first one on that lake in the morning in the summer.

We actually did stop by Highbanks, on the advice of the river rat bait shop. But they said that they are unable to store houses during the off season. But they looked like they ran a very good operation.

Not to bump off this thread but........Can I ask winniewalleye why didn't you just go to Bemidji State rather than Southwest? Cuz then your only an hour from your cabin, and your in God's country 9 months out of the year. As you can tell I went to BSU and loved it, but the only downer part is trying to find a full time job here if you want to stay. Once you live here you dont want to leave and its hard to swallow the fact that you might have to go back down south (St. Cloud area, cities, southern minny), even if the money is better. My motto is the farther away from the cities I am the better.

Our cabin is actually on the Four Seasons resort. It is a great location, but in the winter they do not do much for ice fishermen. Their cabins are open with groomed snowmobile trails to the door and to the lake, but no sleeper houses or anything. In response to the college question, I absolutely love it down here in marshall. It is a very different atmosphere than the St. Cloud area, plus there are roosters everywhere! I chose SMSU for their education program and the proximity to all of the hunting land that I have access to. Our Mustangs stuck it to your Beavers a few weeks back on the hard court if I do recall correctly grin.gif

In the summer, Four Seasons is the best place to go. But in the winter (as has been mentioned) they don't have a lot going on there. Highbanks provides great service for ice fisherpeoples, and is closer to the good hardwater fishing anyway.

I'll be out on Winnie this weekend - good luck to me all of you fishing in the tropical weather this weekend!

I'd say 4 years ago? Judd's was a great place to stay and "old man Judd" as we called him was good for putting us on fish and keeping us laughing!

Thats ok, the bball program there is still rebuilding cuz they were doing pretty good when I went to college there but the program has gone through as many coaches as the Timberwolves so you can't blame the program for going down hill last year. Plus I never really worried about the sport scene at BSU, which was odd cuz my major was sports management...but I was more worried about what lake to fish or what track of state lake I should put up a bow stand or the suckers were running and getting the spears ready! I guess there is some really good bird hunting down there, and even around st. cloud but Im not much of a bird hunter, maybe would go for some partridge (grouse) a few times a year and scout for deer sign while I did that, but I do miss the fishing!

      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
