Dear Mother Nature,

Dear Mother Nature,

I would love to thank you for postponing my favorite trip home for the year. I was planning on getting done with a test in an hour and heading home for a great week of sping ice fishing. Now that you have decided to put home in a blizzard state i will be stuck out here in spearfish for at least a day or two. I am very pleased that you care about my ten hour trip and all, but i would have loved it if you could have made the trip drivable in less than 15 hrs. So, here is to you Mother Nature, i will be surfing the boards of FM until the roads clear and the driving conditions get better. Here is an idea, ill just go through ND and end up at the cabin up north, man ill show you who's boss. Wait, you covered the whole state with this darn storm of yours. For this, i thank you. Ill just continue to dream about the perch i could be pounding up north and the pannies i could be hammering in Chisago.

Thanks for the Blizzard,

Dan

Dano- there is give and take on this one... You will be thanking her once spring hits and we can use the boat landings... The lakes here are way low.. it would have been nice to spead it all out a bit, and not get it all at once.. but we could still use more...

NO MORE!!! I've shoveled my walk 8 times in the past 30 hours. I'd rather have 50 inches of rain in the spring

The first storm, over the weekend, I was in the truck 50 of 60 hours.

The second storm, I was awake in the plow truck 65 of 72 hours, from Wed. morning at 11 am until 11 am Saturday morning.

I slept for 3 hours in a bed Thursday night, from 5 pm until 8 pm, then had (6) 20 minute naps until I got home at 11 am Sat. morning.

I then slept from 12 pm Sat. afternoon until 9 am Sunday morning.

I agree, nothing like getting 3/5 of the yearly snowfall in a week and a half.

I know the contracts that were complaining about paying too much for me plowing, 2 more plowings and they'll all be dead on average for the number of times for the year.

Now that there's no snow to plow, I can't go fishing because there's too much snow on the ice...... maybe after it hits 60 on Monday, it'll be melted down.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser
