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!

      10/23/16     Central MN      Cold front last week and again this morning brought new ducks into central MN. Mainly observed migrating flocks of ringnecks, wigeon, gadwalls, canvasbacks, and mallards--calendar migrators from ND and southern Canada most likely. Had a few good days of duck hunting from a boat on a couple mid-sized shallow lakes. It is that time of the year for calendar migrators. Any time you can get out over the next couple weeks during or the day after a strong west or NW wind, or the day after a cold, clear night with a light westerly wind go for it. Soon these ducks will blow through and we will be waiting for the hardy Canadian ducks that stay just south of the snow and ice line. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Brian, That certainly can not be a good thing for Vermilion! I have not seen it that bad on Big Bay yet. Cliff

      I was back up to morris yesterday oct 22 fished afternoon for about 3 hrs. in 17 to 19 feet caught about 25 walleye and sauger mix average size about 10 in. only 2 keepers. Lots of boats everyone was catching fish. I'm guessing I missed as many as I caught. Stinger saved the day!
