  1. Heading up to snowbank Friday looking to catch lakers and walleyes. I have never been on the lake in the summer. Anyone have some advice
  2. Hi Everyone. I just got back from 5 days on Lake Vermilion and the fishing for me was very good. I primarily fish walleyes, but I managed to catch a few nice small mouth as well. I marked on the Helix fish in the 18-23 ft area in the mud, and so tried to use lead core and met with limited success. Not as much luck compared to previous years. But I did always scratch out a few. The mayfly hatch is on, and this may have affected my luck during the day. Between crushing heat to stormy weather with large temp variations I think I did very well. And the wind during the day was brutal. I may have fished in rougher water, but I can't remember when. I always got half a dozen a day, and my biggest was a 25" mixed with a few 23's. By far though, was my success fishing the shallows. Trolling in Pike Bay, in water 6-9 ft deep, especially in the late afternoon and evening, produced phenominally for me. Do not underestimate how good the mayfly hatch can be in shallow water! Shallow Shad Raps, mixed with trolling Mimic Minnows (1/8 oz) will produce.
  3. looking for some walleyes by Emily any help would be appreciated
  4. im, new to this sight,and my wife and i will be going to Lake Osakis for a few days in mid June to target walleye and crappie,any tips and hints will be helpful,,Thanks
  5. On the south end... An excellent week of walleye fishing. Great to have charter boats running again. Best success in 13-28 feet of water. Anchored up and vertical jigging on structure areas very effective. Drifting or trolling crawler harnesses effective this week on flats or basin areas. Spinners cover water when fish are spread out and not stacked. Gold / pink / orange / glow all working well. Most anglers catching limits of eaters. Larger walleyes are also being caught in good numbers. Nice pike and jumbo being caught while walleye fishing. On the Rainy River... Most walleyes are being targeted and caught in the lake. There is always a population of resident walleyes that live in the river. Best depth is 12-24'. jigs, spinners and crankbaits catching some fish this week. Smallmouth bass in typical areas with rock and current breaks. Pike in bay mouths and current breaks. The sturgeon season opens July 1st. Up at the NW Angle... Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake and stay in MN waters. Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options. Fishing around the Angle continues to be excellent. Walleyes are still being caught on 5-7' flats with snelled spinners and crankbaits. Jigging rocky points in 10 - 20 feet of water where fish are schooled tight effective. Good numbers of walleyes caught this week on flat areas between 10 - 20 feet covering water with spinners tipped with a minnow or half crawler.
  6. I'm going to be on Big Pine for the first time ever over Memorial Weekend. I'll be up with wife and kids, just hanging at a friends cabin. My fiend has no boat, so I'm pulling mine up. So just wondering if there are any dangerous areas. Don't want to wreck my prop on maden voyage. And also wandering what the walleyes are doing on a lake like this. Is it a fairly clear body of water, or stained. Can I catch fish during the day or only low light times. Any info, would be nice. I don't want your secret spots just some general info. Even panfish info for the kids, although my kids can catch walleyes with most adults. They still like to catch panfish when the eyes are finicky..... Thanks
  7. I'm heading up to Vermilion Dam Lodge June 20th in Minnesota for a week. I have never been there and I don't have a whole lot of walleye experience besides fishing in Ontario using a jig with minnow or leech one week a year. How should I plan to fish that time of year? Is a jig and minnow or leech a good plan? I do have some bottom bouncers and lindy rigs I could get out. Really appreciate any advice. I could also troll cranks if need be.

  9. Wow did the walleye bite turn on!!!! Edges of the weeds pulling a plain Lindy with a leech was the ticket. shortened to 4 foot to keep leech from weeds helped. This fish measured 30.0 on a FM Walleyes Unlimited board. Girlfriend didn't want to mount it so after a while we got it revived and it took off for the weeds. Best part this lake isn't even managed for walleyes!
  10. I am going to cuyuna in a coule weeks and I am planning do do a little bit of fishing but am not much of a trout fisherman. Do the northerns and bass in the mine lakes have any size to them?
  11. Word is last Thursday evening 2 boat trailers stolen for parking lot. That's why I do not fish the lake anymore they either break into your car or now steal your boat trailer. I always have a lock on mine that's a no brainer. Also a guy from work said he knows someone that was waiting for a friend to come get her at the access and saw some punks looking in cars in the lot. She walked toward the parking lot and they got the heck out of there. So beware people...................................
  12. Three dads and more kids than we can count going up to vermilion in early July. Any advice would help! Any preference for west or east end? Thanks all -

  16. Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water. I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike. Thanks and #tightlines!
  17. 2020 Rainy Lake Fishing Reports-Click Here. Rainy Lake Fishing Reports Got a buddy to go with me today so have some pictures. Ended up with 35 fish. Got my biggest bass ever on Rainy so well worth the trip. All caught on soft plastic lures. Could not have been nicer out. By end of day I had to take off my coat, sweater and hat. Got a nice November Canadian tan.
  18. I just moved to Minnesota, I live in Maplewood and looking for somewhere near by to fish for catfish from the shore. Any suggestions?
  19. I am going up to camp in the middle of June. Anybody have any suggestions about baits and depths etc. for Walleyes and Bass?
  20. Don’t ya love when the weather forecasters are wrong? S’pose to rain all weekend, but we were blessed with overcast/partly sunny weather. Over the weekend, we fished around on 3 little lakes (all <200 acres) in Bemidji area (Clearwater county). One lake was already up to 66 degrees in the middle! Most vegetation is still low except a few lily pads were just hitting the surface at the shallows; bulrushes are still dried/brown. With the warmer weather this week, I’ll bet the lakes will start filling out with vegetation in a matter of days and probably be growing fast. Sunny/crappie bite was nice on Sat; dead on Sunday—had to work to find them though. (Morning bites were poor--Afternoons much better. Evening is always good…) (males were staging; females weren’t around yet) Their location varied between hugging emergent bulrushes to being suspended at ~8 feet in ~15 feet of water. (the suspended ones weren’t biting, though) We were using slip bobbers with 1/32 flu flus and nightcrawlers. Found some nice perch hugging the bottom in 7-10 FOW jigging with 1/16 pink/white beetle-bou jigs. Once sonny boy starting catching northerns casting a shad rap, then princess wanted to catch a nort too; so our fishing trip shifted from casting bobbers to trolling with spoons and the norts were very cooperative—getting 1-2 strikes every time down a simple shoreline of ~100 yds. Norties were fat and healthy! Princess caught her PB northern! Hoping to be back fishing around in Stearns and Morrison county (central MN) this weekend and got another getaway planned for next week. Happy Fishing!
  21. I tried to search and found a few old posts regarding Superior National Forest (quoted at the end of my post). I usually go grouse hunting in the Superior National Forest every fall, but I've never been up there fishing. I'm planning to head up there in ~1 month with a couple of my friends and their families and we will be bringing canoes. We're hoping to catch some walleye ideally. When I've been up in the fall hunting we usually try to camp by one the many lakes (Wilson, Whitefish, Silver Island, Bone...). The posts at the end are over a decade old already. I'm sure that some of it hasn't changed, but I was wondering if anyone has any good tips for fishing in the SNF? I perused DNR LakeFinder for the lakes in the area we usually go to that have walleyes: Timber, Finger, Sister, Dam Five, Elbow, Frear, Ninemile, T Lake, Windy, Harriet, Wilson, Toohey, Four Mile, Whitefish, Silver Island. Anyone have any general or specific tips for this area? We'd be in canoes, so don't need a lake that has a launch, and maybe that adds benefit getting to a lake that potentially has less pressure. ------------------------------------------------------------ "There are a number of areas you could get to easily with just about any vehicle. Lake Eighteen, Wilson, Silver Island, August... There are a couple that come to mind down some tougher roads, Seven Beavers and Harris. If you wanted to have a wilderness type experience without the permits and regs you could boat across Ojibway and take the roller portage into Triangle if you have a smaller boat. Birch Lake has a lot of the rustic campsites." "Dumbbell is another option (I forgot to mention) and if you're interested in going after muskies would be a good option. Pretty cool campsite on a point." "Wilson has some really nice walleyes, but because it's so clear, the best bite is after dark. Windy has a lot of eaters, plus plenty of northerns and the occasional whitefish. There are several sites scattered around the perimeter. An updated MacKenzie map should show the locations of most campsites on any lake you're looking to fish." "Elbow, Timber, Frear - I would hit them for sure, close together and good walleye lakes. For bait I would use jig and minnows if your bringing minnows, and leeches on a snell, crawlers on the harness. I know lindy rigs and leeches work also, so bring them. Bone Lake - Great splake lake. Lots of good size fish. I love to fish splake, and I would bring in just these spoons. Kamloopers, in rainbow trout and perch colors, and Kastmasters in silver blue, and perch. These are what I only use for splake. They are the best period. Bring a few as there are good sized fish in there. Put them on a swivel and troll the shorelines and points for them, deadly approach. As for Cross River and Coffee Lake your typical walleye rigs will work as I mentioned above. I would bring some pike lures and try for some pike as well. Cross River has good size pike in there. I would also check with some bait shops or local people who have fished these lakes this year, just in case of a freeze out. We had alot of ice up this way. Lotta beaver ponds I trap froze to the bottom, and Cross Lake is shallow, and so is Coffee, but with the creeks and rivers running into them you should be OK. But I would check with the Beaver House or Bucks Hardware. Hate to hike in and the lake froze out."
  22. Hi all. I am currently at Rush Lake near Perham at Four Seaons Resort. We’ve been here three days and have caught basically nothing. Can anyone give me some advice on walleyes here? Where to go and good baits for this lake? I’ll take any advice on any type of fish you might experience with on this lake. Never been here before.....
  23. Ended up going out to the South end of the lake this weekend. Did ok for bites not knowing the lake so only brought home one pike. Saw quite a few more but they were all too big to keep with the 24-36 slot in effect. Biggest surprise was catching a small pout on my first cast yesterday. Definitely a river lake.
  24. Just kinda curious to hear if anyone hit the chain this weekend...specifically if they fished the river? I fished the lakes because of the water temps, but was just curious if people had success on the river. I found the typical situation for spring, fish shallower then you think you should fish. I caught all of my eyes in less then 10 FOW, and most in 7 FOW right off any weed edge you could find. Caught a few cats, one shallow with some eyes, then saw a school of fish on a break, thought they might be a group of female eye, and turned out to be a big school of cats. But, nothing wrong with a 6-7 cat on a light jigging setup.
