Coming Up To Big V Once Again - Need Advice

2 posts in this topic

My uncle and I plan on coming up to big V. We used to fish the up their every weekend when we where younger. It was only a quick jump from Duluth.

Now I live in Red Wing and don't get up that way much anymore.

I used to fish the Mckinly side of the lake. How is the campground these days? When we left the owners at the time never really kept up on it. Has it improved?

Any areas that are well know for catching nice eyes? Any help would be great. Thanks.

Just got back from there over memorial day. Did ok deep with jigs and minnows during the day.

Fished evenings in shallower water with leeches and slip bobbers and got into some really nice sized fish. We got close to our limits of 15-20 inch walleyes. Bobbers were great because we had kids with us. They had a ball reeling them in.

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.
