When we got on the water it was 38 and when we left it was 34. It sucks to put the livewell plug in when the water is that cold blush.gif

we were out tonight (Thursday night) and you are correct about the water temps...plus, the water just outside Eddy's was forming skim ice as we came in at 10:30 so that sometimes our lures were riding on top of the ice! Man, was it cold!! We were out from 4pm to 10:30 p.m. and only managed two eaters, but an added bonus was a 47.5, FAT Musky that probably would have tipped the scales for sure past 30 lbs (she was chowin' down big time for winter!) She hit a HJ #12 Firetiger in 6 FOW. Sorry, no camera. Released unharmed.

Did someone say skimice? I'm headed up sat. and hoping the warmer weather keeps the lake from skimming.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
