Thanks Kelly, for the help Tues. morning. I didn't like to be a nuisance but the way the trail was drifted in for such a distance, if we had made a good run at it we would have buried everything. It sure was nice to drive out without trouble. Thanks again!! We wound up with 10 crappies and countless walleyes released and even though we fished a long time, we could have done worse. We caught 5 crappies in about 20 minutes Monday around noon so a school must have come through. Lost some too. It really got slow all Mon. afternoon and evening. Hope you don't get dumped on too bad this week. Jon, it was nice to meet you. I'm coming up with 4 gals next week and can use all fishing help I can get. They're all family and haven't been to Red before. Borch: If you see this, it was nice to meet you. When we were helping you rock your truck, your wife did a great job behind the wheel. Have you been stuck before? laugh.gif Stan C.

Nice meeting you and John too! We'll be back up there next week as well, (8-11). We caught a couple slabs near you on Sunday afternoon in the spot we were stuck. laugh.gif I'm getting new rubber put on the truck tonight. So I'll be able to get even further away from the road before I bury the truck and unload the sleds we're bringing along. wink.gif

Thanks for the push. I'm not sure if it was the extra help or that my wife was more focused behind the wheel with the extra audience. tongue.gif

Maybe we'll see you up there next weekend.

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
