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.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
