I am losing my mind!

3 posts in this topic

This weather is making me crazy! I am coming up Sunday morning staying through Wednesday in I-Falls and this dang river is going to drive me nuts! I have had reservations for over a month hopeing I would have some good weather and good fishing....but I would be satisfied with just good fishing but is sounds like neither is going to happen. I wish Birchdale was open!

I hear ya Milkdud! We're supposed to leave tomorrow as well, but I think we'll wait. My fishing partner & I are both lucky in that we can leave on a very short notice. This year is a perfect example of why we don't make reservations at the resorts close to Birchdale. Love Clementson, and Royal Dutchman, but they're generally booked at least 1 week in advance, often more. Tough at the motels in town also. We started staying at various resorts on Wheeler's Point about 3 years ago. It adds about 1/2 hour to your travels, but most resorts have openings at the drop of a hat. Let's hope it opens up soon, and stays realtively mud-free! We'll probably head up next Wed.-Thurs., but it depends on Mother Nature. Good Luck, post a report when you return.

Just got back from Birchdale and feel good about what I saw.

Appears to be open to about 100 yds. below the big rock in the middle above the ramp. There was a boat going from side to side there checking for depth. I was trying to send him a telepathic message where to fish and he settled in where I told him. Glad that worked.

Open water down the US side to the ramp. Hope it widens a bit tonight. Good wet/soft spot down the middle that I hope breaks out tonight.

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.
