Saturday and Sunday were both pretty good. Hair jigs, plastics & blades were all putting fish in the boat. Just keep trying different colors until you find one that works. We caught most of ours up by the dam vertical, but we also picked up some nicer sauger dragging plastics Saturday evening. There were quite a few boats down below the Y both days so I assume that area is producing as well.

Try fishing below the Y on the wisc. side. Pitching red w/white tail ring worms on the clam bed. Picked up some nice walleyes on Sat.

Where exactly are the clam beds? Above the green can at the wing dam on the Vermilliom mouth or below it?

There are several clams beds on the Wisconsin side from the rollerdam on down. Just below the Y until you get even with the green bouy on the Wisconsin side is a community spot that holds walleyes. As the river gets lower this winter you will start to see some of the beds. Just remember the locations or GPS them. The clam beds indicate the presence of current seams and breaks more than anything.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
