If I were you I would pack

1/8 1/4 3/8 oz lindy sinkers so your ready for most depths

small swivles

clear green/red/yellow/glow beads

Red Hooks

Worm Blower Upper

Make your own lindy's 4-8 feet in length with one or two beads in front of your lindy rig hooks. I always run 2 hooks for crawlers on that lake. Use the worm Blower Upper to have the crawler float up above the weeds. Fish the edges of weeds and get your rears up early. Usually we are on the water before sunrise and off by 10 am. Start off on points or rock piles. Or start on the island. Not a hard lake to fish but just gotta find a spot and try it. Some guys pull cranks on flats at low light and do good. Tried it once out deep with down riggers and got 3 in an hour then nothing :S Some guys jig with fat heads and do ok. Never fished minnows up there.

Fellas, I'll likely be out on White Earth during that timeframe. Be sure to stop by and say howdy. I'll be in a black and red Skeeter with a 150 Yammy on the back.

My wife's family rents a bunch of the new horizon cottages every year over the 4th. They've been doing it for years. We'll be up there this year again. Thought you might be one of the rellys.

Don't worry about me catching too many walleyes on White Earth- that's one lake that really has my number. Despite all the great reports on the lake here, I consistently struggle out there. There's tons of area lakes I consistently catch walleyes on, but White Earth is NOT one of them.

Anyone hear how the tourney went out there this past weekend? Plenty of boats around on Sat. Any idea of how the winning team was fishing?

I heard the winning weight was something like 6 fish for 11 pounds and most people had a tough time out there, but that is all second hand info. Scoot were you out there on Saturday? I thought I saw a boat that matched the description you gave fishing by the island.

Yep, I was out there. I was by the island towards sundown on Sat night. Did you pull in there later in the evening with another fella?

Yep, I was there with two other people and fished more on the SE side. We weren't there long, just long enough to go down that side once.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.
    • Wheres_Walter
      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.

      Anyone living near bear habitat is reminded to be aware of bears this spring and check their property for food sources that could attract bears.  “Leaving food out in yards that can be eaten by bears can lead to property damage and presents dangers to bears,” said Eric Nelson, wildlife animal damage program supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Pet food, livestock feed, birdseed, compost or garbage can attract bears.” As bears emerge from hibernation, their metabolism gradually ramps up and they will begin looking for food at a time when berries and green vegetation can be scarce. Only black bears live in the wild in Minnesota. They usually are shy and flee when encountered. Never approach or try to pet a bear. Injury to people is rare, but bears are potentially dangerous because of their size, strength and speed. The DNR does not relocate problem bears. Relocated bears seldom remain where they are released. They may return to where they were caught or become a problem somewhere else. The DNR offers some tips for avoiding bear conflicts. Around the yard Do not leave food from barbeques and picnics outdoors, especially overnight. Coolers are not bear-proof. Replace hummingbird feeders with hanging flower baskets, which are also attractive to hummingbirds. Eliminate birdfeeders or hang them 10 feet up and 4 feet out from the nearest trees. Use a rope and pulley system to refill birdfeeders, and clean up spilled seeds. Where bears are a nuisance, birdfeeders should be taken down between now and Dec. 1. Store pet food inside and feed pets inside. If pets must be fed outdoors, feed them only as much as they will eat. Clean and store barbeque grills after each use. Store them in a secure shed or garage away from windows and doors. Pick fruit from trees as soon as it’s ripe, and collect fallen fruit immediately. Limit compost piles to grass, leaves and garden clippings, and turn piles regularly. Do not add food scraps. Harvest garden produce as it matures. Locate gardens away from forests and shrubs that bears may use for cover. Use native plants in landscaping whenever possible. Clover and dandelions will attract bears. Elevate bee hives on bear-proof platforms or erect properly designed electric fences. Do not put out feed for wildlife (like corn, oats, pellets or molasses blocks). Garbage Store garbage in bear-resistant garbage cans or dumpsters. Rubber or plastic garbage cans are not bear-proof. Keep garbage inside a secure building until the morning of pickup. Properly rinse all recyclable containers with hot water to remove all remaining product. Store recyclable containers, such as pop cans, inside. Store garbage that can become smelly, such as meat or fish scraps, in a freezer until it can be taken to a refuse site or picked up by refuse collector. Take especially smelly or rotting garbage as soon as possible to your local refuse facility so it can be buried. People should always be cautious around bears. If they have persistent bear problems after cleaning up the food sources, they should contact a DNR area wildlife office for assistance. For the name of the local wildlife manager, contact the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367, or visit the office locator page.
