Fished the big O Saturday from 8:30 to 11:15.

Caught 20 walleyes for 2 of us and kept 10. Never left the spot we started on. Gotta love that.

Got several perch, but nothing over 9 inches and one mid 20 inch pike.

Missed a TON of bites, and used a TON of shiners up. Very fun day.

19-21 ft.

EXCELLENT fishing!

We were there Saturday from about 6-noon and 3-9:30. I'm not a very good walleye guy but we managed 4 for the day and several perch up to about 10". Most of the action we had and heard about was from 15-20 ft. We fished from the Pelican Bay landing around to the Dead River inlet with the most action on the windy side of the lake.

Planning on heading up next weekend for some fishing with the boys. Is the fishing still steady right now? We usually went up the weekend after opener and had pretty good luck, this year is a few weeks later, hopefully the fish are still biting. If not, Zorba's here we come.

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
