10' on reefs or close to breaks. Weed edges are good as long as the pike aren't there. I noticed areas that should hold eyes were left on account of pike in the area.

As Upnorth's post indicates, its going to make a huge difference as to what body of water your on.

We found em on the edge of rocks in 8-12 feet on Shag in Ely. No slaughter going on but we were happy. 18 walleye from 14-24 inches in 2 days.

Nice minnow mix you so carefully calculated putting together! How'd you come up with that again?!

Maybe Justin should try some!

We stopped back in later that day but your relief guy was in. We needed more minnows and 1/8 ounce jigs.

Thanks, we'll see ya again.

hey Ted! Rumor has it you couldn't catch a walleye if it was in your bath tub.

My advice would be to use a King Kat with a gob of worms and fish off the dock!

been doing very well every day on island except for tuesday when the storms came through. every walleye caught was in 6 fow no structure. just flat sandy bottom with minimal weeds on bottom. tried every lure i have to throw at them and the only and i mean only way i can catch them is with a smaller size pink or orange floating jig 4 inches from 2 split shots. and the minnow hooked through the lips. hook them through the back and only thing i could catch is a buzz. hook them through the lips and i might waith 10 minutes before a walleye. and no other colors worked except for pink or orange. really weird but that is the only thing that has been working all week. averageing about 4 eyes per night from 8pm till 9:30. going back out there in 30 minutes to get some more. have to take advantage of this while it lasts. from this spot here is the keeper eye count.. sat night.. 9 people.22 keepers.. sunday night, 2 people 10 keepers. monday night. 2 people, 5 keepers. tue night= SKUNKED. wed night, just me, 3 keepers. tonight will be 2 of us and i am guessing we will get 7 keepers...

Good fishing all see ya out there some time.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
    • eyeguy 54
      popped out from 730 till noon today and fun city. went to 3 different areas and did not see another person. gold with red, purple with white produced. Tried the chartreuse wishbone again and still a no go. someday maybe. 
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Awesome thanks Rick! I'll post a fishing report on how we do! 
    • Rick
      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
    • Alex wilhelmi

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2017 expire Wednesday, Feb. 28, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Licenses for 2018 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2018 fishing licenses become effective Thursday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2017 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. This year license fees increase by $3 for a resident individual angling license, and fees also increase for other license types including deer hunting licenses, sports licenses and lifetime licenses. License fees support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. “Thank you to all who purchase a license. License fees pay for the work we do and the dollars go directly toward improving fishing and hunting opportunities in Minnesota,” said Steve Michaels, DNR licensing program director. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. Customers are encouraged to update their customer record online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. Adding an email, while not required, allows the DNR to send important hunting and fishing information, and gather input through surveys. More information about how the DNR spends license dollars can be found at mndnr.gov/LicenseDollarsAtWork. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
