Giddy-up Boys!! Almost time to heat up the waters!

I am so excited to get to fish Vermillion for the first time. Should be great timing this year for the fish to turn on. Looking forward to meeting everyone, ok I need to try and concentrate back on work now...thanks a lot that is going to be impossible now!

Is anyone besides me getting excited to fish the BIG V? I have never been on the lake but I am very excited. There must be others in the series that are getting excited.

Also, what part of the lake are we going out of? I have a map of the lake but won't know where the heck I am going? A little info on which part of the lake we are staying on may help me get started.ScottS

I'm pumped for it. I have never fished the lake either. I will have to take a little vacation and pre-fish that week before! It's a big lake, I don't want to jump in a boat Sat. morning in complete confusion!
Anyone else thinking of heading up there early?

Find Hoodoo Point (southern area near Tower?)on the map, Scott. Somewhere in that area, but I don't know where exactly!

Guidemans said his place is 5 minutes from Hoodoo point which is down in Pike Bay. I know that My partner and myself, along with Fishhead and Grabs will be up prefishing on Friday. We are going up on Thurs night.

Hey Guys,
I must say I'm really looking forward to meeting all the guys from FM.com. smile.gif
My place is very easy to find, I'm on the west end of Pike bay, which is on the east end of the lake.

Just take 169 north 17 miles to the "Y"
store and take a left on county Rd 77.
There is also a billborard for Fortune
bay casino on the corner. Go 1.2 miles
and you will see my sign on the hwy.

Hwy 169 is 4 miles past the last stop light in Virginia. Make sure you don't take the turn in town it goes the other way. It happens all the time! smile.gif
The fireside seminar starts around 7:00
pm and goes until......whatever!

See you then! smile.gif

Thats it, after my tournament this weekend in Brainerd I am going to keep heading North. That should put me in Tower on Sunday evening and give me a full two weeks to prefish!! Ok, well I would have to have a job like Pwaldo does to pull that one off grin.gif

Jim, since you are not fishing maybe you could throw some of us who are not going to be prefishing a bone. I keep looking at the map and it looks like lots of water, lots of structure and lots of areas to lose my lower unit!! Hopefully that translates to lots-o-fish!

Guideman, is your place in Pike Bay?ScottS

Hey Bob O,
I do have a ramp in my yard, it can handle most boats unless you need alot of water to get it off the trailer.

There is a puplic ramp in Pike bay or you can launch at Vermilion house boats
right next door for $5.00.

I should have enough dock space for all that stay at my place. My neighbor and I, each have 100ft docks. smile.gif

Guideman,
Thanks for the directions to your place. Are you planning to have all of us launch and park at your place, or is there a nearby public launch and we could boat to your place?

If you plan to offer your place, how early can we launch on Fri morning without bothering anyone?

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!
    • redlabguy
      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.
