River eye help

5 posts in this topic

This year I was thinking of fishing for some river eyes.Where is the better areas to fish the river in the fall?

Shall I fish the shallow water by the deeper holes or the rock areas,inlets? Would it be of value to fish the areas where there are alot of shads swimming the surface ?

I will be fishing the evenings until midnight or so.

Thanks.

If your going to be fishing that late, I would stay shallow and hit the inlets and any kind of shallow sand ledges. After dark I usually use some sort of crank. up till dark I use grubs. White is my fav. with char leadhead.

I've got a few hours in now without a fish. Its just a little too early yet but I was hoping the usual haunts would produce at least a few. One night I stood by a creek outlet that was just full of bait. The fish were there feeding but when you got all that bait, its tuff to compete. The bait will dwindle and the water will get colder...I'm not going pheasant hunting!

I'm gonna swing by black dog west tonight....we'll see.

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282
