Only 4 Days.....!

4 posts in this topic

We will be up Saturday the 26th for a week. We are staying over on bear island but will be on Vermilion for a couple days. How have the water temps been? Any bait shops still have extra-large leeches? Any reports on smallies, wallies, or pike from either lake? We are getting excited....... laugh.gif

Heard last friday walleyes are sarting to turn on in big bay rianbow chubs . Try stick baits. Leeches this time of year are running smaller now just find some good size large if you can.

BFD, I was in the area this weekend. I spoke to a crew that were serious muskie hunters from Illinois. They were focusing on Vermillion and said it has been all around slow because the water temps are so warm. My bro-inlaw told me that he heard they are hammering eyes off of Hoodoo point in 20 feet of water useing downriggers. All I know is that Burntside was very warm and unproductive. Hope this helps. Good luck, have fun. BC

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
