you might want to try coming to Lake Crystal and fish right from the pier there, i have heard they are catching a few crappies from there. Its only 15 miles from New Ulm

the pier on long lake by st james was giving up the crappies and on st james was giving up the gills but you had to sort them to get the better ones.

Minnecon park right in New Ulm on the river is a great place to do some shore fishing...you will likely only catch sheephead and the occasional catfish, but I have rarely got skunked there...

      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

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
