Tom,

I'd be interested to hear how the landing was also. I have tomorrow off and since i looks like its gonna be nice, I was planning on taking my 4 year old over and shore-fish Chub, but if i could get my boat in I'd rather do that so I could look for some nice gills or crappie. I've got a 17' lund and roller trailer. The lake has been so low the last 2 years that i quit even trying to put in there with my boat. Thanks for any update smile.gif

PS: Say HI to Deb and Austin from Chris, Caroline and Dylan (she'll know who this is grin.gif) and have her tell her sister & brother-in-law to stop by sometime!

Thanks for the info Tom, still looks like they are predicting a nice day tomorrow so I think we'll head over there in the morning. Not sure I can get Dylan to cast spinnerbaits with the "Tweety" pole but maybe I can cast a few docks while he throws a bobber/worm grin.gif

The best was right in front of the landing to the right as you leave the dock and the the shore line the was no fish at the dock's worm's worked in the deeper water next to the weed's we did great to day a lot of big bass I think we did about 35 today what a great day. Hope you can get out smirk.gif good fishing.

Some nice bass. The reason is because the lake was not fished hard except for those that knew the lake. Hope yor post does not change that. Thats a small lake for any kind of pressure. Hope everbody does C/R.>>>later the load

Load that lake has been hit hard for years and years. Heck I fished it at 3 years old and there was more pressure back then than I have seen in the recent years. The reason the bass (Yuck) are in there is due to the stocking years back and they are finally of decent size. Nobody in there right mind eats those bucketmouths anyways. tongue.gif

In my opinion those bucketmouths could be weeded out a bit and let the Crappie, gill and eye numbers develope a bit.

This is Mn. after all. blush.gif

Bass are a nice option for when the walleyes are slow. It seems like Bass are always biting.

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      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

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser
