Smallies Smackin'!

3 posts in this topic

I was on the upper end this last Sunday, and couldn't keep the bronzebacks off the hook- 8 to 12 FOW, 3/8 oz blaze orange roundheads with a fathead, 39 degree water. Also found a few walleyes, but they were a bit more finicky-lots of bite offs. I know that if I was using a smaller jig or a stinger I would have nailed more, but the smallies were more than enough of a reason to keep on with what was working. I couldn't believe how clear the water is.......

Hey John, what "upper" section did you fish? I'm hoping to get out on the upper one last time on Sunday.

above the dam. I go there because it is closest for me to get to, but I am sure that the same results could be had anywhere down stream.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
