I have been fishing the rocks and it really has not mattered what the color has been. I have a half pink half gold Rock and Roll that has slaughtered them the past 2 weeks. My brother used green and caught tons, our buddy used gold with the same results.

Went out of Zipple, had GREAT luck on the gold jigs in 26 feet water, check out my story on other post ~ hope you are as fortunate!! When we fished, found they just look at the bait if we jigged, so turned off the Vexilars & left 'em sit in the hole ~ the bobbers didn't stay UP long! GL ~

Went out at Long Point on Saturday. Fishing was slow in the morning and early afternoon. Caught about 15 fish from 8-4 for two guys. Then at about 4 the fish put on the feedbag. Caught at least 35 fish from 4-6:30. Got our 8 keepers easy and threw back alot of fish that would have been keepers had we not already had our limit. All walleyes only caught two small saugers and no perch. No big fish either all keepers were between 15-18 inches. Fished in 25-27 feet moved around when it was slow. Marked fish all day but for most of the day fish would follow your jig up two sometimes three feet, move very quickly after it, and then would put on the brakes, look at it for 5 seconds and head back down. Caught a few here and there from 8-4 but like I said they started snappin at about 4. Ran out of bait otherwise we would have kept catching fish until dark. Wish we would have had one more scoop of minnows. Our mistake. Ice was in good shape and little wet and slushy in spots but could drive everywhere with a 4X4. Great trip and the weather was awesome.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
