I'll be visiting the folks for Turkey Day next week and would love to wet a line. Anyone willing to suggest a shore spot or two for some walleyes or sauger in the area? I'd really appreciate it and would be happy to put you on fish if you come down to the Rochester area. If you don't want to post the information my email is Anvalek @ hotmail.com Thanks in advance!!

The bridge over highway 25 should be done by then and that would be an excellant spot to try out. Since my boat is down for the count till some parts come in, you'll probably see me there as well.

How do I find out if the bridge is open by Thanksgiving? We go to Green Isle for dinner.

Thanks

According to MnDot, the bridge is expected to be open on or before Nov. 22. People have been driving around barricades and across the bridge already but I wouldn't recommend that!

Always room for you in my boat Brian if shore fishing doesn't work out for you.

Ran up from Jordan yesterday with Hooper and Dtro to BP only to find that the roads that they had built out into the river where dug out and used for the shoreline frown.gif. Hopefully they clean out the landing

You forgot to mention that you were the only one to put fish in the livewell?

Anyone looking for shore or boat company Friday morning? I've got the morning free, then I am going to try and find some pheasants in the afternoon.

I won't be around on Friday, suppose to knock some cement out of the barn so I can get more boats, cars in there. I still suggest fishing either the bridge or up to the first bend. I checked out the landing today ( bridge is open!)and there has to be a major cleaning out of the landing before anybody can back a boat in.

      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,
