It's been just over 2 weeks since I was on 16 but we did pretty well, steady action all day, some nice sized saugers, some perch mixed in, and walleyes right up to the slot but nothing in the slot on that trip. Jigging spoons and shiners under a deadstick. I was pretty satisfied with our catch. Going back in 2 weeks, hopefully you guys will have some good info to report when you get back.

We were up on 16 Sat 3/1 and Sun 3/2 (a.m.). To sum it up Saturday - Slow, Sunday - Slower in 27.5 feet. Friday 2/29 was a better day at Arnesen's Reef but no size and majority was perch with some eyes and saugers. Fish at 16 were bigger but fewer to be found and the weather Sunday didn't help matters.

I left the lake from 16 mile on Monday morning. The Road was blown shut out by 16 mile. We able able to get two wheeled houses off by driving on the east side of the road for 1 1/2 mile, then the road was OK to drive on. We were off the lake by 10:00 am. Looked the plows were just about to head out onto the lake when we were leaving. FIshing was slow Saturday and Sunday.

Moneyback2,

We were out to 16 mile on sat and then on sun, When we were leaving on sun around 4:30 pm we got the sub. stuck about 100 yrds. from the road. Were u guys the ones with the black lodge sleeper, and the white p/u that was stuck? Thank god for the driver from arenson's to give a hand. We only got 6 walleye,s & 6 sauger, the walleye were good size, 2-18, 2-17, 2-16, some 14" sauger, a lot of small (8")sauger. When we left the main road back was 3/4 drifted shut.

No, we were in 2 blue Fords with Crew cabs. Tough going out there. We were just glad to get off the lake on Monday morning.

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      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!!

      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
