I'm leaving in a few hours!

I have the green light from the wife (a.k.a. Jill on this forum), to head up tonight. I would like to get whatever info anyone can offer up! I haven’t been up there since the beginning of the year. I would like to get into some large fish since I’m a CPR man. Bass, Northern, and Walleye. I know this year has been so warm that the patterns are probably messed up a little. Normally this time of the year I would be casting the shallow rocks, points, and breaks for Bass. Casting weedlines for Northern adjacent to deep water where the wind is blowing in. And probably Lindy Riggin’ deep water reefs for Walleye. I only have two days of fishing so I need some of that FM expertise! Am I on the right track or way off base?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
