Report from trip 5/22-5/27

1 post in this topic

As pretty much everyone has said so far the walleyes were cooperative for us. Many boats did struggle as the winds were out of the W, SW, and NW most of the time and pretty strong. The rain kept coming down off and on also. We caught fish all day long with the Tamarac still producing a little faster than the main lake. I think that had to do with the wind factor as not many people on the lake were doing well. I fished almost exclusively plastics on the trip and did very well(Gulp, Powerbait, minnows and leeches both). THe walleye in the river were basically everywhere moving through in waves but we keyed in on the deeper holes and did well. The walleyes on the lake were still anywhere from 5-7 feet but the deeper we got the more sheepshead we got also. Crappies we caught in the river early in the morning on the sharper breaks down to about 8 feet of water. Crappies on the alke were tough but we did manage a few after 8'o'clock in the evening on the north end in shallow, 3-4 FOW below bobbers. All in all a good trip even though the weather was not so nice. Plenty of keeper walleyes boated without problem and many fish 24-25 inches also. ALready looking forward to our next trip up from KC. GOod luck boys, maybe this helps.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
