Fish hook lake area for walleyes???

11 posts in this topic

I have a family reunion coming up the first week of June and we are staying at some sort of camp on Fish hook lake. Where would be a good place to get some 'Eyes for a little fish fry close by?

Fish Hook has been hotter then snot lately. Lots of fish coming from that 23 to 27 foot range. potato has also been good, we were out there today and probably caught 20 eyes and 2 smallies. Swing by Northern Bait when you get into town i will point some spots out on the map. Jonah

south end of main street, we have a sign where you need to turn on 71, you turn west at Jones Pearson Funeral home, toward the hospital. Jonah

Fish Hook is still hot. I caught a 19, 18, and 25 on memorial day around 2-4 p.m. Depth varied from 18-30. My dad has been out every morning since monday and has caught two 25's, a 27, and a 28 as well as many nice eaters. He ranged from 18-35 FOW. Never had fishing like this before. Of course all the bigger fish released immedietely to be caught again smile.gif

Musky,

20 eyes sounds like an awesome outing to me! smile.gif

Did you catch them on Potato or Fish Hook?

I will be up your way starting Sunday afternoon until the following Saturday. Are you working Sunday pm? How are your Jumbo leeches looking? Are they running larger than earlier on in the season? It seems as though they have been smaller than usual (most of the bait stores I know)this year.

      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
