Was there tonight. Weedy everywhere. Only a few other people fishing, all from shore. Guy I was with used his trolling motor to move around. All we caught was weeds. How is one supposed to fish that lake when the weeds are up?

i guess it depends what your targeting, was there a inside weed line close to the bank? if your fishing for bass im sure the majority of the lake is in post spawn mode, so fishing for them may be tough, how was the water color?

Water seemed to be cloudier than normal. Maybe recent rains have washed field residue and "murked it up". Did notice a soybean field planted 5'from shore. Weeds are in full bloom along with the biting flies near the hog barns.

How about targeting walleyes. Any suggestions on technique?

Find differences in bottom comp. They will be holes in the weeds. Slip bobber, pitch a weedless jig If you ain't gettin weeds on your lure, you probably won't catch fish.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
