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

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
