I'm in the process of buying a new colored locator. Just wondering what people thoughts are on which kind and model to buy? I was looking at the Lowrance x25 or Eagle 2000 fish strike w/gps. Any comments would be greatly appreciated....<>< <>< <><

I purchased my first color unit, a Lowrance X67C, this past spring and I am very pleased. Good resolution, easy to see in daylight as well as dark, plenty of features to fine-tune it to my preferences.

LCX-25 hands down. Worth every penny.

Humminbird 777c2 or 787c2 if you want gps. I've documented 2.75 inch target separation (2 quarter ounce jigs tied close together) in 35 feet with the 777c2. For graph purposes, I think these are better than Lowrance. I don't know about the gps, but I think they use Magellan components.

I, too, run the 787C. I also run a Matrix 97 on my console. The 787c is better, but has a smaller screen.

      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
