Lake Darling

4 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to Darling on Sat. for a week and I was wondering if anybody had any reports . We usually troll for pike but I'd like to find a spot for eyes or panfish. Also is the water level to low to get back to Lake Alvin?? any help would be great thanks.

The water levels on Darling remain low. I'm not sure on the status of the channel to Alvin, but there's always a sand bar on the Darling side anyways which makes it challenging. Alvin gets pretty weedy and warm by August so you are better off fishing Darling for northerns. The sunfish bite on Darling has been decent lately, and the bass remain active in a little deeper water. Try drifting the flats for sunnies and the occasional bass/northern.

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.
