On fish I was in anywhere between 4-7 feet of water. Right on the point in front of the launch, if you go tomorrow you will see my holes. We only had 3 flags all day, but one sure paid off.

Thinkin about headin out there later if i dont go to prior. Anyone ever catch any decent eyes out there? by the looks of the dnr website there's a few fatties swimmin around in there. I would guess they're out in the deep hole, but havent heard of any big ones at all

Does anyone know if there's a better spot for pannies than right out in front of the access in 6-8 feet? I've caught fair numbers of crappie out there, but not a whole lot, and they're on the small side.

i think you can prolly catch pannies anywhere on the lake in the 8-12 ft range and crappies out in the 20ft range but i havent gotten any size out of any pan fish in there

Went out for a couple hrs just for some entertainment. Was in about 15fow. Got a few little sunnies, a few crappies, and a 10inch walleye. Crappies were around 8 inches. Man were they aggressive they were ripping my bobber under fast.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Thanks for sharing those pics ... really enjoyed that!!     Bob

      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.
    • Muskies
      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.
    • JeremyCampbell
      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
