grrr.....not the best night

4 posts in this topic

I decided to take a walk back to a spot on the shore that looked good on a earlier hike. Grabbed three bullies for a few hours. Hoofed it back about a mile or so with my gear and 5gal bucket. Got tore up something fierce by the skeets (after taking a bath in Repel). Get back there, toss out, get pole all set up, take bucket to rivers edge for fresh water, dunk in bucket, slip on rock, bye bye two bullies smirk.gif

While grieving over my lost bait, my clicker starts screaming, run over, engage, nearly get pulled into the river.......get nothing back but a severely crushed bullie.

Count my losses, hoof it back through mosquito world. Get home to find that while scooping the bait I knocked the bubbler off my tank and all my bullies are dead.

Guess I'm off to find more bait tomorrow.

When it rains it pours! I have some sort of jinx that comes out when I go to Tonka. Sat morning I’m pulling the boat of the trailer and the lead rope unsnaps and off into the lake goes my unmanned Stratos. I would like to thank the two guys that went out and recovered my boat. Sunday I back down that same ramp check my lead rope, and put the boat in. Dead batteries! The bilge pump stuck on and killed the batteries during the night. So now I’m torked, back the boat in the garage still fairly agitated and WHAMO right into the new tool box.

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait
