South Lindstrom Lake - Sat. Opener

12 posts in this topic

My husband caught this 29" Norwegian Walleye today....just kidding.... My wife and I were fishing South Lindstrom today and I caught this Bowfin (Dogfish). What a blast to catch! It measured 29 inches and was caught in 7 feet of water using a slip bobber, hook and minnow.

Nice fish, jighead! I usually just shake those things loose with a pliers. You're a real man for picking up that prehistoric beast. Thanks for the pic.

You should cut-em open and let them go for the turtles. They eat eggs right out of the nests.

I have to admit, we forgot the net so my wife had to land it with her bare hands...she thought the thing was going to paralyze her arms if she touched it!

You didn't mention the rows of little barbwire-like teeth to her, did you?

This may be just a silly rumor but...

I heard that they sort of "bark" or make some kind of noise with their lungs...Do they?

I have heard them make some pretty awful noises when out of the water. I hooked into one that was about 5 lbs on Chisago one time and they put up a really good fight. But thats about all they are good for.

I caught about a 4 pounder on an UL panfish rod, that was fun. I landed it with a net and wouldn't even lift it into my boat. I had just given it the spring cleaning and no way was a slimy dog fish gonna ruin it.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
