Last open water outing for this year.

8 posts in this topic

Tomorrow will be my last day on the open water for this year.

My son and I will be making it a full day out there in what is predicted to be one of our nicest Oct days this month.

My friend and fellow Vermilion guide Dave Schaeffer Will also be out there fishing by us trying to get that one last giant gator to bite.

He and a friend boated his 4th. 40# plus musky today, his second 40# plus this week! shocked.gif

Hope that everyone has had a great summer! smile.gif

Time to get ready for deer season and also time to get this winters gear and the fishhouses ready.

Good Fishing!

Cliff

Thanks Cliff. I've read a lot of your posts this year as a new member to the site.

I'll be heading up to my place this weekend too and will give a quick water/ice report early next week.

So Clifford how did the day go? I was thinking on making one more trip, but since you put my way of getting out to the main lake away, I guess I will have to wait until spring. I would certainly enjoy another winter outing when you have the time. Let me know, actually I will probaly see you two before that time comes. I have an idea for a business venture when I move there next spring, and would like to run it by you and see what you think. Until we see each other take care. Later Darrell.

      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
