The walleye bite has been very good all week.

Any type of presentation has been getting fish!

I have been fishing jigs/minnows or Lindy Rigs with minnows or crawlers in water that is 12' to 42' deep.

Slow and easy is working best for me.

fished niles bay, wolf bay and frazer bay on tuesday. frazer bay was most productive, fishing 30fow with 1/8 oz. jig. fish bit on minnows, crawlers and leeches but it was a light bite so more fish were hooked using half a crawler. didn't have any luck under 20fow anywhere. be back saturday am weather permitting.

I know this on the other end of the lake, but we were doing pretty darn good by Mud Creek Bay area in 20 to 33 FOW with leeches on spinner rigs(day time) and 7 to 9 FOW with slip bobbers and leeches(early morning and evenings). We didn't get around to trying worms, and minnows didn't do anything for us.

I was up on the big V from June 9th thru the 15th. The fishing was great! Slowly trolled lindy's the whole time with size 8 and 6 red and Flo. Orange hooks on 2 to 3 foot snells. The speed was best between 0.4 and 0.8 mph. We caught enough unders to send limits home with 7 people and about 10 to 15 slot fish. One nice pike, five smallies and many nice bonus Jumbo Perch. We fished from 10 to 19 feet the entire time. Mostly in the middle of the lake by Gold Island, Muskrat Channel and Grassy Point. It was a great time had by all. We will be back next year a little earlier. The group we were with also spent some time fishing for sunnies and were rewarded with plenty of nice sized fish. The biggest walleye was 23 inches and the biggest under was 16 3/4's. The bulk of the fish caught were 13.5 to 15 inches. They were all nice healthy looking fish. I can't wait to find them next year! I forgot to add it was all leeches and nightcrawlers but the crawler seemed to have the edge and we only used half crawlers and they did just fine.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
