I fished it one day in early June right at the (Contact Us Please) near VDL, to the rapids about a mile down. Wouldn't recommend that area - a couple snakes, one big smallmouth follow, and that was it. There are a couple musky in that area, but not enough action overall, and a lot of boulders to ram into.

That's pretty good, I spelled dam wrong and got called on it by this site. Anyway, I fished from the DAM near Vermilion Dam Lodge until the rapids about a mile down....

Sue,

The stretch between two mile and eight mile creek is best for fishing. Mostly smallies and northerns. Good numbers and a lot of fun. You will likely have it to yourself. Your resort should have a canoe that you could use. Drop in at two mile creek and canoe into the river, would make a great day trip.

i used to guide the area doug just talked about...you can catch alot of walleyes and some jumbo perch.....also the pike and northern and i would imagine there are those muskies in there too......the trip up two mile creek can be hard on a prop...take an extra.....there are ribbons to mark a shallow spot....but the water may be down...so its all real shallow....just take your time.....bugs may also be a factor....can get alot of deer flies and such......doesnt sound great ....but it can be of some fun in there....depends what you want to put into it....

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
