Vermilion Walleye Classic.

10 posts in this topic

Looks like the weather will be pretty bad for the classic this year. Forecast is calling for an 80% chance of rain and very windy conditions. Fortunately for me I have decided to skip the tournament this year. I think the wife and I will do our fishing on Friday and Sunday to avoid the bad weather. Have fun all you classic anglers, don't forget to wear your rain gear.

 First time fishing the tourney.  Brutal trip across big bay in the crestliner but we ended up in 14th with a check. We had a perfect 19 7/8 fish.  Had a 20 1/4 and 3 from 22-23" to. I was up all week and was really impressed with the average size fish this week.

I fished the tournament and cashed a check also, the weather forecast earlier in the week was looking like a wash out but Friday night we were informed that the rain was going to hold off which it did and it turned out to be a decent day with the exception of the strong east wind. Like cliff we had issues with our equipment as well, my transducer was slamming against the back of the boat after our first trip across big bay in the morning. My trolling motor would not deploy when we made it to our first fishing spot but my anchor worked well and we were fortunate that we didn't need to move to catch fish. 

I was surprised at the number of slot fish we caught, I was also surprised at the number of big fish weighed and the overall number of fished weighed at the end of the tournament at Fortune bay. The old saying  "winds from the east you catch the least" didn't hold true yesterday. The folks who put on the City Auto Glass tournament are top notch and it was a very well run event.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
