Opener reports

No reports from opener!!!

 

We had a good opener around here. Very clear water made it tough during the day, but low light conditions helped the bite. The fish were eating. Crappies are spawning too or at least making beds.

Anybody else?

Plan A and B yielded pike. Plan C on Sunday worked out well. Took us until 10:00 to find them, but once we found them it was game on. Caught 19 in 2 hours. Decided to let the fish rest. Kept 6 for a mother's day meal.

Talked to a boat. They said they caught a limit saturday and were on there way to a limit on Sunday. Tough to see boats pulling 30 walleyes out of meeker county lakes in a weekend. To each their own

Hey Husky,

 

There is still too many people that believe that are natural resources are unlimited and if the law says they can take 6 fish, they will. The problem is I don't believe most people follow the possession law of one limit. 30 walleyes for a couple people in back to back days is ridiculous. If they are of any size, no one can eat those fish all gone. They are either giving the fish away or stacking the freezer full and breaking the law. When the bite is good, greed sets in and the slaughter begins.

It is an issue that will never be solved.

      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.
