  1. Heard from an island neighbor (Church Island) next to ours that a bear killed a small dog yesterday around 8:00 pm on an island in Frazer Bay. Also, my other island neighbor to the east (Juniper Island) reported three bears yesterday and one chased after their labrador retriever. Watch your pets friends, some of these bears are very aggressive!

  3. 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.
  4. Curious how the depth is in river from Wolf lake to Andrusia and Cass. Is it navigateable. Was up there last September and went through there. Kind of scenic and nice slow ride on the mighty Mississippi. Did get a few fish as well. Hopefully going there again this year. Staying at my brother's cabin with his son and my dad near Becida. With dad in his early 80s hoping to keep this 3 year tradition going for a while.

Click Above for 2021 Fishing Reports↑↑↑↑ Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports from 2011 to 2021 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 hav
  6. Let's hear how you're doing. Please help by sharing your fishing report here. Thanks.
  7. 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.
  8. On the south end... A lot of summer walleyes are being caught and fishing has been good. Not all walleyes are targeting the same forage consequently walleyes are being caught shallow to deep. Many of the shallow fish are eating crayfish or schools of baitfish. Deep fish feeding on baitfish, mayfly larvae, blood worms, tullibees and the list goes on! Most anglers are targeting walleyes in 30-34' of water over deep mud. The scattered reefs can always hold fish as well. Spinners and crawlers have been very effective. Hammered gold, orange and red / white spinners doing well.
  9. Have some friends coming up this weekend. They have an 18" glass pleasure boat. Wondering if with the low water, we'll have trouble launching? Anybody use the launch lately?

  11. Day 3 of using nothing but drop shots, wacky rigs, and jig and craw took me to Wisconsin to see if I could continue my newfound favorite lures. I went to Church Pine Lake, just east of Osceola. Never been here before, so had no clue what to expect. Turns out to be a nice little lake for a small boat such as mine. Lots of potential here, but fishing was tough today. Most fish came on the drop shot on the deep weed edges. 6 bass and 1 little pike. Highlight came at the very end of the day, where I caught a 21 inch bass right in front of the access. Best way to end the day
  12. 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????
  13. On the south end... Another really good week of summer walleye fishing. Walleyes are being found in many areas but most are targeting deep mud in 30 - 34' of water. A nice mix of eaters, slots and quite a few trophy walleyes over 28 inches caught this week. Spinners with crawlers / leeches or trolling crankbaits have been the most effective techniques. Good spinner blade colors to start with are hammered gold, red / white, gold / glow, pink, orange or chartreuse. Crankbait colors, pink UV firetiger, chrome / blue, firetiger. It is good to start with different colors / shap
  14. So I'm fairly new to the area my boys love fishing as do I . We have been attempting for the past couple of weeks to find a place we can fish without a boat. In between Brainerd and Little Falls. Also times of day to go. We love fishing I'm a newbie as well so just looking for ideas please and thank you.
  15. Going up to GM 16th through the 21st bringing my 14fter was looking at Ball club and east west twin for walleyes. Anybody fish these before or am I just better off smallie fishing on Two Island or trout in Kimball. I know JB and Moose will have some feedback so what say you ? going up with the wife and 8 yr old grandson they will be kayaking me fishing. Although grandson will probably want to be fishing with me. Appreciate any feedback from you guys thanks.
  16. Just got back from our annual Grand Marais trip! I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting old and cranky, but over the last several times I’ve been up there, I’ve been liking the town less and less. Getting too artsy, hippy, liberal for me Also sad to see the northshore getting absolutely “loved to death”! Has totally lost it’s up north feel. Anyway, enough ranting. Fishing was terrible! Numbers and quality were way down. Aside from 2 smallies that barely scratched 17 inches (both were skinny), not even any medium bass were caught. Only caught a few small pike, and 1 walleye. As
  17. Good Morning Friends: I had a warning light come on yesterday for my 2000 Mercury Optimax 150 surrounding the reserve oil in the engine. Apparently it is leaking a bit and I found a new one at Frank's Marine in Orr. Problem is......finding someone to repair it soon as all of the larger marinas seem totally booked for repairs. Per You Tube, it doesn't look like a major job, but I am not a real handy guy. Any suggestions on who I could call? Thanks Andy 763-557-9008
  18. Started out on Long lake this morning south of Richmond. Picked up a 21 in walleye. Then motored up the channel and we got 2 25 in northern and 3 18-20 inch walleye. All in all a fun time on the water, but hot. All caught in 16 ft or less on leeches and crawlers. Dead calm, bright sun and water temps in mid to upper 70s. Just teaches me another lesson that you never know when it’s ideal time. Oh wait anytime fishing is ideal time. Kept a couple for meal and rest went back.
  19. On the south end... An excellent week of walleye fishing. Walleyes are being found in a variety of areas, but most anglers focusing on deep mud in 30 - 34' of water, although anglers found fish in less than 20' as well. Walleyes can be scattered across big mud basins or hanging out in small schools. Covering water by drifting snelled spinners with a crawler or leech or trolling crankbaits has been effective. Anglers using a 2-3 ounce weight for spinners in deeper water. For trolling crankbaits, many options. Downriggers, lead core line, a 4 oz bottom bouncer with a 6' mono / f
  20. Was looking at doing some bass fishing on big marine. I saw on the map that little inlet on the far south side that goes into some super shallow water. I’m guessing it’s full of weeds or pads of some sort. Anyone bass fished tgat in the summer before. I would be doing it by canoe. Just seeing if it’s worth a shot.. Thanks

  22. Hey all, just moved back to MN where I grew up after living in the PNW for a long while. I became addicted to fishing rivers and streams out there and have started to check out the offerings in the NW section of the state as of yesterday’s opener. Wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me some pointers or just tell me if I’m wasting my time since that’s what I’m wondering right now since I didn’t find any signs of fish. I’m using a spinning rod with Mepp’s and Panther Martin style spinners and went through a bunch of color combos. I started yesterday morning at the Clearw
  23. On the south end... Another great week of walleye fishing. Some areas of the lake are experiencing a mayfly hatch and other bug hatches. This can be a good time to fish spinners with crawlers, leeches or minnows. A two ounce bottom bouncer with a two hook harness and a crawler is tough to beat. Drifting the mud flats where walleyes are living is an effective strategy in 25-33 feet. As fish can be scattered across big mud basins, covering water by drifting crawler harnesses and trolling crankbaits is effective. Good colors this week were hammered gold, pink, glow, orange and chartr
  24. Crazy request, looking for lakes to bring a few kids just to catch sheephead. I know of Norway lake west of New London and Waconia, these make go teaching tools for kids to practice fighting. Plus they are good on a smoker, and can be used for leech bait as well as bullheads.
  25. Hey guys, going up to nine mile lake camping and noticed that Echo lake next door has Atlantic Salmon. Any tips on catching one? Is it even possible this time of year? Any help would make me and the little one super happy. Thanks, Andy
