Need a little help

2 posts in this topic

Hello All,

This is the first time posting on this web site. I have used it before to regularly check fishing reports throughout the state. I will be fishing Lake Vermillion for the 1st time the week of Agust 19th / 26th. My family and I will be staying at Pherson on the west end. I am a die hard Walleye fisherman and would like any information that could help me get started. I realize that I have to do the fishing but any tips would be greatly appreciated. My 10 year old daughter and I Thank you for any insight you could give.

We stayed at Pehrsons when I was about 10. I had a blast in the marina/dock area catching nice large mouth. If your daughter can catch a grasshopper, she WILL get some nice bass. There was also some nice smallies in the channel on the way into the marina in the evening.

As far as eyes on that end of the lake, I am clueless. I rarely make it west of Frazier Bay.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
