Well, the trip was simply refreshing, with a great time in the Canadian Wilderness. Went up to Lac Seul, actually we were down by Hudson and fished mostly Lost Lake, but still considered part of Lac Seul. We did take a 40 mile boat ride 1 day up to the Southern portion of Lac Seul to fish.

The first day we had pretty decent weather and the walleyes were aggressive enough I was able to pick a few up on plastics. After Monday, however, the fronts came in with East winds and the walleyes wanted nothing but minnows. We caught plenty of fish as a group, but I can't say it was lights out action the whole time. The large majortiy of the fish ran in the 15" range, but my dad picked up 3 in the 23-25.5" range. We had a couple more than topped 21" in the group as well. I would like to make it up there in June sometime. Plenty of northerns, but most of them were in the 20" range. Largest I got was 30-32". Did a little smallie fishing the last day and picked up a couple of those as well. Here are a few pics:

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
