I fished White bear on Wed 6am to 2pm. Had one muskie on (around 40ish) for a few quick seconds and then she wanted to see how high she could jump!!!!

I moved a few more fish after that. All my action came in a 15 minute window.

So far in the metro this year it seems to be real short feeding windows.

Anybody having any luck with the Tigers yet?

I caught one bass fishing on Bald Eagle 2 weeks ago! On a spinnerbait... at least 40".... didn't have a net... so didn't get it in the boat.

The man with a 40" BASS - MUST BE A WORLD RECORD! haha, right there out of Bald Eagle. Would have been a great headliner. So was it a Musky? or a 20" bass?

I went on Sunday to try to get anything out of Bald Eagle - I did not find any 'skis but I did find several northerns and bass, all in the north end of the lake by the big set of private docks. Nothing worth noting, though...bit was really slow unless you were using worms, and then it was mainly sunnies and crappies biting.

On another note, I've never seen a launch as busy and packed as what I saw yesterday - boats 9-12 deep waiting to launch/get off. However, I do have to say everyone was really nice and quick about getting their boats in and out!

I beg to differ on the launch at Hairy Sparrow (Bald Eagle) on Sunday. We all know father's day is going to be the day for the amateurs at the ramp. I wasn't expecting to see much that impressed me there, but one that baffled me was a guy with his wife and 4 kids. Backs the ski boat into the water, gets it off the trailer, his wife holds the front of the boat while the 4 kids jump in, in the meentime, the back of the boat swings around. This blocked the other ramp, the boat swung all the way around so it was basically backwards on the trailer. Then he just moved it to the end of the dock so it was perpendicular, gets out and goes to park the truck, still blocking one of the two ramps.

I think from now on, if a person is having trouble, I might go and help them out and offer them some tips. We should all think about this and maybe it will relieve some of the stress at the ramp by helping rather than getting frustrated.

      We did well Thursday, Friday and Saturday out front of Pine just out of the gap in 19ft. Got on the lake just fine Saturday....was actually better than the previous two days as far as rough water is concerned I thought.

      Welcome back Fishandfowl! Congratulations on your bird. It seems like it has been a tough year for many. Hope you can stick around and share your adventures with us some more.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far

      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller?

      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.
