I'd hire a guide for a day. Poke can be a hard lake to fish, and hiring a guide can really help. My uncle has a cabin on the lake and was struggling for a couple of years, hired a guide for a day and now does quite well fishing the spots he took them to

W.I.W.F. I know pokie can take some time to figure out, I do have a friend that is a guide that lives on the lake and knows the lake like the back of his hand. Very reasonable prices too. Look him up if you ar interested, his link is:

look for the breaks off weed flats or rock and start fishing 1/4 oz jig and shiner on that 14-20 break will keep you in action and the beauty is you will never know what you will catch, northern, bass, walleye they are all there

I would recomend that you get the Lakemaster map. It's accurate. The older maps are basically worthless. Like Jason said, a jig and minnow and a nice weedline will produce a lot of fish. There is a nice weedline between king's point and Chislholm island that can be good that time of year. I also second the recomendation to get a guide. I have gone out with Dan who is the guide referenced above. He knows the lake very well, is very friendly and has good prices. Good luck!

On a full moon troll Raps on the sand bars by Nessbit Island. We used to catch some real nice eyes at night that way. Good Luck.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

      I heard today that he has a bad rotater cup and is scheduled for surgery. Cliff

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
