Prospects this weekend?

2 posts in this topic

Well it looks like for the sixth year in a row another cold front will be coming through on our annual guys weekend (Thursday-Sunday) on Vermilion. Curious if anyone has any thoughts on where the walleyes may be.....shallow, deep, on the points? Anyway, we haven't had too much success in prior years cold front walleye fishing. At least the leaves may be pretty if they aren't all down.


BTW, JKrash I will come by to discuss dock removal. We are thinking mid October, maybe the 14th weekend.

The walleyes are on a good fall bite now.

Lindys and minnows or jigs and minnows will get fish in almost any area that is holding fish.

Try sharp drop offs,points and bay mouths.

Start at around 12 feet deep and just keep working deeper until you find them. Then concentrate on that depth in the area that you are fishing.

Most of my fish are comming out of 12 to 26 feet of water this week. By next week they will probably be deeper with the colder weather predicted.

I would highly recommend that you get a guide if you have had trouble catching fish in the past years during the fall on Vermilion.

Good Fishing!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
