Bite last night

1 post in this topic

Hey Guys!

Caught 12 real nice fish in about 27ft of water before dark last night. Only 2 fish over 20 inches, but several nice eating fish. Followed the fish up the break into shallower water come dark. Casting jig and minnow as slow as I could possibly fish it. Fish still aren't exactly snapping, but I wouldn't be surpised if the nice weather today will help put together a hot bite. I guess the rain dance we were doing really worked! Don't forget to really work your graph, and don't get caught fishing memories as these fish scattered a bit from the storms. General rule of thumb is the deep bite starts from about 32-36 feet while the shallow bite can be found in less than 5 feet. You'll find a fair amount of eater fish mixed in with slot fish in the deeper water while there will be a larger percentage of slot fish in the shallow water. When fishing the deep water in low light or the windward sides of structure don't be afraid to check up top the structure or toward shore as the fish will at times move up chasing baitfish!

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
