5 posts in this topic

Hey Jim,

Did you have anybody stop in for minnows this weekend and head out ice fishing??? I was just wondering how this ice is holding up?? I went to Gander this weekend and blew about $400 on a new Lowrance H20C GPS unit with the Lakemaster chip for Minnesota. I will have to drop by and let you check it out...It will be quite the gadget for hunting lakers on Burntside next year! smile.gif Anyhow, let me know how the ice is holding up...I just might go after some crappies this week if the weather holds out.

Later,

Justin

Justin,

The ice seems to be holding out, but no one is fishing. Not that I can blame them with the wind and cold weather. A person may be able to squeak out some crappie fishing on the ice for another week. I'll be at the shop from 8-1 the next few days, cleaning the tank and charcoal, preparing for a new season. We should have fresh bait in and be operating within 10 days, and continue, for the most part, until the end of the month. Will take off April 26-30th to go to the lake home and cabin show at the Mpls. Convention Center. After that, shop open and doing construction projects. Stop in whenever the truck or car is there. smile.gif

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      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
