I was up with my family, i went off my point and i had a couple of follows, but didnt land anything, then i had one on off my dock! it got off as i tried to jump on the water to grab it becasue i didnt have my net. it was about a 35 inch, but the west end is where you want to be from what i have been hearing.

I was out Saturday morning on the west side for a short 3 hours before we had to check out of the cabin and get back to the wives. 10 mintes in I had a nice one side swipe my manta and miss, later we had one roll on a top raider and miss and another bump on a bucktail that didnt work out.

Was out today in and around Norwegian Bay on the west end. Three follows but no takers. Lots of pike and a bonus walleye, tho. We were using small lures most of the time.

I didnt get out as much as I would have liked to. Ended up fishing muskies for a few hours on saturday morning. Had one lazy follow and had one slap at a jackpot but missed. Both real nice fish. You guys seeing anything on the rocks yet? Both fish i saw were in the weeds and shallow.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.

      Keep on preaching BA.   Just got back from a resort on the river, 3 days fishing. 22 feet of water, they sad they were catching fish. Shacks obviously haven't been moved so far. Obvious tell tale signs.   2 out of 3 afternoons never marked one fish. The other was just a couple. Morning bite 8-8:07   They ran with the pedestrian anglers/corporate drinking groups  'good fishing' reports with their bucket of 1 limit of 10" saugers.   Signed, Disappointed Schnook from Chicago

      Wednesday was a gorgeous day on the lake...for January, anyway.  Starting to move around the lake until the pike move to the North end to start staging for spawn. It always makes for big pike later in the winter. Had some luck with a couple of small Northern pike but got a surprise when I landed a small Tiger Musky. The DNR stock them every other year in Phalen. They have been doing this since the 80's, so there's bound to be some big ones in there.

      Thanks for the information! I'll give it a try.
