Vermilion Fishing Club

7 posts in this topic

Just wanted to get some input if anyone would be interested in some kind of fishing club on Vermilion. I was thinking along the lines of weekly or bi weekly catch and release tournaments just to get together and have a little fun.

I would definitely be interested. I have rotating shift work so I am not sure if I would be able to make all the events but I think it would be a great way for guys to get together and add a little friendly competition on top of it. Any reason to go fishing is a good one right??

I like to fish with new people.

Enjoy sharing info an just hanging out.

I don't guide everyday...

When going alone most time I just have my hounds along an they are a hoot. Best musky fish guides around.

Like to add the Arrowhead chapter of muskies inc. is full of great sticks, very friendly folks all.

Have fished with a few of them many times, couple other once or twice...an have met some very, very fine classy people thru that lil club.

Some of the most fun times I had last season were just spur of moment type deals with a few people from right around lake.

Silverscale being one of them.

"Hey T, what ya doing..wanna hit the lake for a bit, maybe hunt one up?"

"Sure"

"Well graba rod an lets do it!"

"BINGO!!"

Sometimes we got fish, some times not, most times muskie fish, sometimes pikes, bass an wallys... but we sure had fun each time no matter what we fished for.

Good stuff.

;\)

No internet access on Island so if I was to meet up or come round would have to meet up via phone or set times dates fer meet up.

Good idea for a bi-weekly get together for sure.....good luck with it.

Are you talking about for all species or just one? Sounds like it could be fun if enough folks came.

I was thinking along the lines of walleye but it doesn't really matter, could be something different each time we meet up. Anyone interested out there in being an organizer for this club?

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
