  1. Hit the ice for the first time today about 6 inches of ice and lots of slush 3-5 inches deep. The snitch handled the work load with amazing results. The busy end was the smallest pug bug with a maki mino the crappies were racing up am crushing it. The gills would come up slowly but would eat it. Had a 3 to 4 pound walleye break me off in the top of the hole.
  2. going to be heading up that way the 20th of aug and its been pretty quiet here in the deer river forum. my intent is to fish bowstring, maybe sand and some other lakes in the area. can anyone give me a little heads up on how fishing is?? thinkin even of dragging my 2 teenage granddaughters along can anyone tell me about dora lake. been there once, would like to maybe try it again. bugs still bad????

Click Above for 2020 Fishing Reports↑↑↑↑ Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports from 2011 to 2020 are below ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓ I thought it was about time to post how the first 10 days of the season have gone for my wife and myself. Things started out pretty slow for us. We found the fish virtually everywhere we expected them with sonar but only a scattered "biter" here and there. The bite has really picked up for us since about last Thursday. We are finding a more consistent bite in specific areas(as opposed to here and there) and the depths have

  5. Hello everyone. I have not seen or heard from anyone on the form so I thought I would post some pictures of opening weekend on rainy lake, May 16 and 17. Water is about 18” low from July levels and water temperature is 56 degrees as of Sunday. The walleyes and bass were caught on jig and minnows in 8’- 12’ of water.
  6. Just wondering if anyone else that fishes the Root (especially below Lanesboro) has ever patterned or had any luck targeting sauger/eyes. This is my first year trying for them after hearing whispers for years and I've been surprised with my results. So far I've caught 5 sauger and 4 eyes out of the Root this year, a 17 inch Sauger and a 22 inch eye being my biggest so far. I know the river is a lot better known for trout but if anybody else has had any luck targeting other species I'd love to share reports or tactics.
  7. On the south end... Anglers are pulling in nice catches of walleyes with some big trophy walleyes mixed in as well. The MN Tournament Trail Walleye Tournament just finished their championship with the winning team putting up 80.99 lbs for 10 walleyes! Water temps have dropped to the upper 50's, shiners are running and there is a lot of bait adjacent to shorelines, fall is here. The jig bite has picked up tremendously, but pulling a spinner with a crawler or shiner along with trolling crankbaits is still effective. Along shore try 10-16' and out on the mud 22-28'. Gold, glow and orange are

  9. So I am looking for advice on successful approaches on opening weekend at Osakis. I am new to fishing Osakis and I am not asking for you spots, more what you use and types of water. I have fished many times early in the year at Otter Tail. Early on it is almost exclusively a shiner bite typically on dropoffs near shallow water. Are shiner the tickets at Osakis as well? Or are there other baits that work early in the year? Also any common depths to try etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  12. Finally got out fishing this season, long weekend on Ottertail, Vacationland resort. Lots of wind Fri & Sun, Sat fairly calm. Marked lots of fish but slow bite with a few walleye & perch. Crallers, raps, suckers, shad. Day 16 - 19 FOW deep side of weeds and 6 - 9 FOW shallow side of weeds after dark. 61 to 62 deg water temp. Lots of bait balls at 17 - 19 and suspended at 20 - 25 ft in 40 - 150 FOW. Much needed fantastic weekend. Pics, multi helix 9 SI - DI - Sonar, cabin lake view, Son, Grandson. Hard to believe the monster perch hit a 3" Sucker.
  13. Got a flyer in the mail the other day from these folks. Anybody check them out yet? Looks like a brand new start up business. Looks like they offer everything the others don't provide-customer service related. I heard a few months ago that possibly two new barge services were coming to Vermilion, this is one!
  14. Is anyone out there getting tired of all these fishing tournaments? Lake Vermilion just came off an August with way too much Bass tournament pressure. Several folks are really concerned about what all that pressure is doing to our fish populations. The week of August, first week of Sept. there was a 3 day B.A.S.S. event. There was pre fishing all week then the 3 day event. It looked like a swarm of locusts out here on the Lake. People who live on the lake and people who came up for vacation to fish bass could hardly find a place to fish. B.A.S.S does not practice true catch and release
  15. On the south end... With water temps dropping, some beautiful walleyes caught this week. Walleyes being targeted using three methods, drifting or slow trolling crawler harnesses, trolling crankbaits and vertical jigging. Walleyes are located in various areas of the lake, deep mud, shallow water adjacent shorelines and deep water reefs. As a rule, the larger walleyes have been over deep mud and deep structure. As fall progresses, walleyes will start getting schooled up in key areas along the south shore, in many cases relating to shiner runs. On the Rainy River... Larger schools o

  17. Hey; Just reaching out to others who have or may have a greater knowledge of where to locate a good source for trapping crayfish in the Twin Cities Metro Area. I have been working the rivers and have found some good locations, but the population of people in those areas have created challenges. Mainly, not leaving things alone that don't belong to you. I had found a good resource for the invasive Rusty Crayfish and was doing well trapping those, but as the weather got nicer and more people were looking for places to fish along shore lines, my traps were being disturbed, and worse yet,

  19. On the south end... A lot of walleyes caught this week on Lake of the Woods. For many of the AIM tournament anglers, a lot of huge walleyes were caught this week. Charter boats and guides doing a nice job of finding good schools of eater walleyes as well as the slots and trophies. At times, eaters might be in a different location vs the big walleyes. Walleyes are being caught in 14 - 36' of water. Two main patterns, crawler harnesses and crankbaits. Best spinner colors, hammered gold, pink, glow white, glow red or orange. Shiny or brighter colors are good starts for crankbaits. It is

  21. After fishing every handful in years in Minnesota for 40 years, I'm FINALLY going to bring my wife up to Vermillion and see it for the first time. I'm chasing smallmouth and pike only (well, I'll gladly wrestle with a fooled Musky but not fishing for them). If the largemouth fishing is better than the smallmouths, we'd probably chase some of them too. Staying at Ludlows on the island. Boy I'd love ANY help with where to start my searching for the smallies and pike and what to key in on that time of year. I'll have basically two days to fish and will have my own bass boat. I am an

  24. Hey guys! Some buddy's and I usually make the trip up to the Sioux Narrows of Lake of the Woods in June. This year with the border being closed, we went up to Lake Vermilion instead. It was our first time being on the lake. We caught quality fish of every species. Video linked below!
