Fished Monday starting at about 2. We caught 9 eyes with crawlers and ZERO northerns. ;) Biggest was 18. Hit 3 different spots.  Decided to check the crappies and 4 boats were there using minnows and bite was dead. We did pick up 4 using plastics.  Talked with one guy and the bite was good last Friday evening. WInd and rain moved in during the night and we decided to head home. Coulda fished but we both had stuff to catch up on at home.

We fished there on Wednesday. Only two keepers, and several small ones. We caught so many small notherns we ran out of bait. They seem to be getting worse every year. With that many small pike in there, it's going to wreck that lake. Nobody keeps any they my need to put a bounty on them.

you could keep 9 under 22 till they changed back to 3 this year. no sure why they changed it. couple guys were using minnows close to us and thy caught have dozen or so.  kinda funny watching boats and when fish on out comes the net, then it goes back when a northern pops up.  must not want to get the net slimy... LOL

I fished string on opener, minimal success, two walleyes. I actually launched out of cow bay with my 14 ft the north public access was a zoo. Caught them similar to how eye guy stated.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
