I went out with HT last night and caught a lot of small smallies. Biggest was 16 or so but the rest were pocket bass. HT caught some dandies with quickest catch and release method I've ever seen.

I figured out HT's secret. Gotta have a jet and a real powerful trolling motor to handle that current. I have a 50lb trolling motor and it kinda slows me down, but I can't "hover" in one area like HT could. Great more stuff to buy!

It was a fun time HT! Thanks for the trip!

No problem, EBass. It was fun.

Trolling motor was my priority this year. You need to be able to hover in one area without anchoring.

Ok HT.....let me in on the specifics....You can save me a TON of research time. I have a 17 ft flatbottom john...doesnt have alot of drag, but currently have a bow mount that isn't up to 'par' for the big time current here. What pound thrust,make, model, 24 or 12, cable turn, etc, etc, etc is your bow mount? It would be great to know ahead of time what is needed so I dont OVER buy or worse, UNDER buy. Let me know...I would GREATLY appreciate it.....Thanks in advance.

Buy as much thrust as you can afford. I have an 82lb thrust Motorguide. I wouldn't recommend anything less than that 74lb thrust MinnKota. That way if you get hung up, you can just go upstream and get it. They are both 24v systems. I have yet to drain it on a full day of fishing.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
