Ok, you sunfish gurus....what happened? Fished Osakis on Tue the 13th and the bite was on. Got a mess on nice fish in a short time. Went back to the same spot Sun morning the 18th and NOTHING.

I've been fishing Osakis all my life and that is normal for this lake. Here today and gone tomorrow. Actually they are still around but the bite is a day to day bite. It varies more than any other lake I fish. It can get frusterating but when the bite is on it's worth it. For me it's "you should have been here yesterday" most of the time. Good luck!!

Didn't you know the fish shut down for the weekends there? grin.gif Has anyone been out to the deep holes i.e Battle point or the pt north of battle, or has everyone moved in to try the crappies there?

      How big are the hooks you're using, wookie?   Make sure they're big enough, especially if you're using big minnows.    I also use heavier line than most people (10 lb flouro) on our rattle reels so I can set the hook with a bit of gusto without worrying about breaking off.  I might get a few less bites than my friends using 4 lb or 6 lb test, but in the long run I bet we both get the same number of fish on the ice.

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
