  1. Only got one this weekend, but it was a dandy. 41” pike. I’m sure the west enders recognize the background

  2. I just got back from staying up at Vermilion for a week, and I made a few notes: The water temp was consistent at 66 degrees Monday through Saturday. The weather was crazy wet or wildly windy, and I found my biggest walleyes (15-17's) were caught in my standard spots Monday through Wednesday. Then a switch turned off, and I had to relocate and find new spots as my previous ones were dead for the rest of the week. Never seen anything like that before. After the lake calmed, and skies turned blue, I could only catch the 9-14 inchers. The biggest I saved for fish fries, and I eve

  3. Today ended a truely epic Vermilion trip. Best smallmouth fishing I've ever experienced. They are definitely getting bigger, getting fat on all the rustys. 3 lb fish were the norm with several 3.5 - 3.75. I got three over 4 including a 4.56 yesterday. Lost a 5+ right at the boat, what a tank, ran alot of drag and took me for a couple laps around the boat. Thought I hooked a muskie until I saw it. Speaking of muskie I fished more muskie this year and did not even see one (unusual) and only caught the big pike I posted earlier... Until today. I was throwing a 3/8 spinner bait for b

  4. How about some tips on what I'm looking for? I did luck into a 36.5" today fishing for muskie. No muskies though. She's back out there growing to 40+.

  6. Smallie fishing has been nothing short of incredible (East side). Numerous 3 to high 3's and two over 4# (pics). Deeper rocks and shallow both have been good. Pike have been tough with the warmer water. Not finding 30" plus fish in the usual weedy spots. Not sure where to find consistent fish.

  7. I went up for the day today, jig and minnow (fatheads) was hot for the morning bite. I stuck a dozen or so right on a mud/big rock transition in a couple hours. I left to try and find a leadcore bite. Well I don't think I wetted a line for at least 2 hours, could not find anything on the graph that was worth dropping a line. I finally ended up throwing in the towel ran back to my 1st spot and stuck a couple more eater size fish, but the majority of the fish had vacated that spot as well. I was on the east side.

  8. I’m getting good walleyes, too, (15-16” after you sort out the 12-13s) at 14-16’ trolling spinners with crawlers. Trolling eliminates the crawdads. Frazer is my home ground. We have to be getting into minnow season any day now. Worth a try. I’ve been hearing some good fish on pike suckers but I like rainbows early. I usually only fish an hour or two a day but a friend is coming tomorrow and we’ll fish hard. I’ll try to report. RLG

  9. So I won’t see it then since yellow and blue make green. I’ll put my waders on before I go there. Don’t mark my recliner! I’m taking that out to one of the bogs for the blind. Easier to look up that way.

  10. Finn and I went and scouted for ducks and we found a nice little pile in 3 places. I did talk to a dad and daughter and I pointed them to one of spots I had scouted. The dad thanked me and told me he would not be there opening day and I told no I want you to be there opening day as I have a couple other spots.

  11. The BWCA opened up and I went out fishing on Basswood Lake with my wife and guided by my friend Mike Stark from Ely Fishing Guide Company. We caught lots of walleyes, smallies and northerns. The biggest walleye came in at 28 inches. The biggest pike was 38.5 inches, closely followed by a 36 incher. The biggest smallie was 20.5 inches. Me and the 28" eye. My wife caught the big 38.5" pike with Mike catching the next largest 36 incher. 20.5" smallie.

  12. congrats on the new pup moose, hopefully it still lets you get some sleep at night I always stagger my dogs. The amount of stuff the puppy will learn from an older seasoned veteran dog will outweigh the tormenting. Also in this pandemic dogs have been pretty hard to come by. With everyone stuck at home more now they are buying dogs. If this is the new normal for a while you may have a hard time getting a pup from a litter. I would be devastated if I had to put down one dog and didn't have another.

  16. Just got back from a Thursday-Monday trip and best walleye fishing all year for me. Was in the Fectos, Smart's and Frazer Bay area and caught most of my fish on crawlers and Lindy Rig in 12-14 feet of water.

  21. Had a great weekend. Saturday morning my buddy was done in 30 minutes and I was done in 50 minutes. We each hunted in our own boats. I passed on several shots not being sure if they were teal. He called me when he was going in and I had him on speaker phone. I shot my 5th duck while we were talking. Sunday morning we both hunted and neither of us fired a shot. Most birds were gone. Picked up at 8:00 and went fishing. I went out Sunday evening at 5:00 and had ducks coming by about every 20 minutes. Couldn't ID them with the way the sun was. Planned to pick up at 7:40. Well at

  26. The first portion was specifically referring to the Bengals. The second one was specifically referring to the Vikings. I may have misrepresented myself on that one though.

  30. Beautiful fish BVT! As for recognizing the background, if you just panned the camera a little bit to the left you’d see my cabin. That is my next door neighbor’s dock in the back ground. It’s a good spot!

  32. I was just going to say that kinda funny we are in first place after that performance. O-line was just a complete disaster Kirk never had any space to step up in the pocket and make a throw none the less he still went 39/49 with 350 yds and 2 tds not bad as he was running for his life the entire game.

  33. Update: water temp was 67 degrees, the bite was quiet on the west side of the lake. Got one 16 inch walleye in about 15 feet of water around Center island. Tried a few reefs, drop offs, transitions, didn't mark much and only got a few decent smallies, rock bass and perch. Tried main basin, Norwegian, Niles, Wolf with crawler, rainbows, rapalas. Even made the trip into Frazier bay though it was a little choppier than my boat liked and did not get a single bite. No muskies though I only tried for a few hours over the past few days. Hopefully who ever is fishing has better luck than we did.

  38. Just got back from a week at harmony beach, and boy did the fishing suck! Lake is extremely low, and thick with algae we caught about 60 fish total for the week, between 5 guys (a few other fished a couple times). Bass fishing was almost nonexistent. We did get a 39.5 and 34 inch pike. And pike represented about half the total catch. Caught several slot walleyes, biggest being 22 inches. Tried going after crappies, and found them, but couldn’t get any to bite. Oddest catch of the week was a 28 inch redhorse while casting cranks on a rock pile. Of course I didn’t have my weight scale in the b

  43. After more than a year, thankfully we have been allowed to return to our Rainy Lake home. Hopefully the travel bans will not be repeated. Fall fishing is as good as it gets. Walleye and bass are making their fall transition and are schooled up. Find the right spot and let the party begin! Thanks to Muskies for feeding my addiction while I was stuck in the U.S. If you can get to Ontario, come now!

  44. I only used crawlers last weekend so I can't speak for minnows, but was getting good action still on crawlers. Water is cooling fast, so it doesn't hurt to start trying minnows. I believe leaches are done for the year at most bait shops.
