  1. For current Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports - Click Here. I have been thinking it would be nice to have a thread for fishing reports specifically on the West End lake. Everyone knows that the east has more walleyes so it seems most of the reports are geared toward the east end. Not always, but it often seems The fishing report from the east vs west can be very different and I think a separate thread might help people (myself included) out who fish the west end.
  2. So whats your best guess for ice out this spring or summer. http://www.lakevermilion.com/iceout/contest.html
  3. On the last day to target predator species during this Ice Fishing season I went out on Lake Vermilion. I setup for the morning on a break where I usually catch Walleye's with a few Yellow Perch mixed in but on this outing I caught mainly Jumbo Perch! Plus one bonus fish that took me over 4 minutes to get up the hole...
  4. I have $50 to spend on Musky lures for a 14 year old boy. Last fall he caught a nice musky, from my kayak, and was unable to land it to get a picture. He did get it up to the kayak several times so he got a good look at it and has been bit by the Musky Fishing Bug. I am looking for suggestions for the young man and was hoping to get some help here.
  5. Coming up for our annual "boys" fishing trip June 30 - July 4th. Staying on Frazer Bay fishing for walleyes. Was up a month ago but only managed 4 keepers for a fry, no slot fish. We were there primarily to repair docks for my brother-in-laws folks place so we only fished a couple of times. This time will be primarily fishing. Sounds like the mayfly hatch will be over by the time we arrive, hope to read some fishing reports after this weekend. Our past success is usually slip-bobbering the reefs in 20 FOW with what ever bait is recommended at the time. Thanks! Kevin
  6. If you want a new fishing report just ask right in here. If you have questions or would like to post your report feel free... I'm here to help. I suppose now that it's June I should start my 2012 fishing report thread on here!! I am supposed to maintain a thread on here as part of my duties with HSO so let's get after it! There is a ton of good information on here regarding fishing on the V and cabins, restaurants, resorts, boat rentals and just about anything else you can think of. So if there is any obscure question about anything else like electronics, rigging, willow cats, bullhead
  7. Hey everyone, coming up on friday and wanted to see if anyone has been catching any around the pike bay area what techniques have been working and if there has been any smallies been caught around that area also? Thanks!
  8. The walleye bite has been very good most of August for me. Most of my walleyes have been caught on sand/rock reefs located in the main lake basins. The standard depths has been 16 feet to 23 feet with almost nothing coming from water deeper then 26 feet. A few walleyes have been caught in 8 foot to 14 foot sandy areas also. The average size of the walleyes has increased a little. Most of our keeper sized fish are now running 14" to 16". Not as many bigger slot fish showing up in our daily catch now though. Maybe one or two a day that are in the 18" to 22" range. Lindy rigs baited with 1/
  9. With the earlier ice out this year has that moved up the mayfly hatch. Were coming up this weekend for a week for our annual trip,
  10. My wife and I continue to venture out on a fairly regular basis. We've only missed one day since the last post. The water continues to warm and has been holding pretty steady in the low 70's. We have been continuing our bobber onslaught and we have definitely noticed a pattern of fewer bites and smaller average fish. We have still been catching a good percentage of 20"+ walleyes. I figure the fishing is going good when we can average 20-25% slot fish on an outing. The 15"-17"+ size walleyes that were making up a good percentage of our catch the past couple of weeks have definitely tapered off.
  11. Since our guests left, lots of things not related to fishing has been going on. I've been recuperating from a heart procedure and my boat has been recuperating from Aronson's replacing the damaged motor parts. Both of us are much better now, so, my wife and I ventured out and tried our luck this afternoon. I'm not supposed to lift over 10#'s for a few more days and it took me most of the morning to convince her that the anchors only weighed 10#'s. Anyway, it was good to get back out again. We left the house around 4:00 and actually started fishing at 4:30. We were home by 7:15. It seemed like
  12. The Smallmouth action was pretty good for us over the weekend. We spent some time chasing Muskies, however we spent most of our time pounding the Smallies. Docks were the most consistent locations, especially those with reeds near by. To my surprise, most of our fish were caught on spinner baits. We did get a few on sencos and I caught 2 on a Husky jerk. I did my best to find a few that would take a top water, however all I got for my trouble was about a 15" Pike. We did manage to boat 8 or 10 that were in the 18 and 19 inch range but most were 12 to 16 inches. One funny little tid bit is th
  13. I'll be up on the Cook side of the lake in a couple of weeks and really haven't seen any reports on how its been on Wakemup, Norwegian or Wolf, Head of the Lakes bay. I'm hoping its going to be as good as the lower part of the lake. Any reports would be appreciated.
  14. Looking for any action for our wives................. any help appreciated. McKinley Campground is where we will be launching from. Panfish smallies........ dont matter just some action. Have a pontoon and looking to anchor up somewhere. Thank You!
  15. Hello Friends: What a beautiful last few days, only wish the fish were cooperating! Has anyone noticed an improvement in water clarity this year? Perhaps it is my turning 50 and my eyesight is actually improving, but at least from our dock here in Smarts Bay, close to Frazer Bay (our point), it really seems much clearer this year. I can actually see the fish laughing at my slip bobbers as they swim by. Has anyone else noticed an improvement? Andy
  16. It's amazing how fast time flies when people,fish, and good times mix together perfectly My cousin and his Buddy arrived here last Saturday and, this morning, they left for home. I always get a bit edgy this time of the year in preparation for their annual outing: pre-visit fish location, most effective angling method, peak activity periods, etc. Fortunately, everything came together and they enjoyed what they termed as one of their 3 best trips ever! I found during the pre-visit fish location that the walleyes were located on reef tops. During 5 days of fishing, we fished reef tops ranging
  17. Finally a nice day to get out on the water! My clients and I left the dock at 8:30am and returned at 4:00 pm today We boated a total of 70 walleyes, 3 pike, and 3 perch. My clients kept their limits of 14" to 16-1/2" walleyes. 3 slot walleyes, 21-1/2, 20-1/2, and 18-1/2 inchers. All 3 pike were in the slot. 26" to 32" fish. Only one perch was big enough to keep, a fat 12" fish. All fish came out of 26' to 32' of water. We used leeches,chubs, and pike suckers on lindy rigs for all of the fish. With the weather forecast for the next few days, the bite should get even better! Cliff
  18. My last post was 4 days ago and things are definitely beginning to change(at least for us). Water temperatures today were 61.7 degrees this morning. The days are becoming pleasant with warmer temperatures and lighter winds and I think it's having a very positive effect on the fishing. The big female walleyes are moving to the rocks, whether they be shallow or deeper, and the movement is bringing the higher-end eaters right along with them. It's time to chow down after the spawn, and the really good fishing is just beginning! My wife and I have been jumping around spots the past few days tryin
  19. Any reports on the bass activity are they getting close to pre-spawn or are they in pre-spawn will be up starting Monday the 1st and hoping they are going nuts. This is our annual fishing trip with my buddies to the cabin. Walleye fishing has been great the last few years but I am a bass fisherman at heart and with the late spring last year was really tough. Even up on Trout caught fish but not like most years. Just wondering if you guys are seeing them around and if so the depth. Cant wait and to catch some big bull Bluegills on Trout as well and have some fun with a good and sometimes l
