I am purchasing a camping trailer in this bay and looking for any info on what fish can be caught in the bay or near it. Looking to get the family out for some fun. I have a very light aluminum boat so long runs and wave busting are not going to work.

Well, I'm hoping the fishing is more active than the forum. Would I be best looking for pike or small mouth in this area?

i dont fish much for muskie or northerns, but there is a vegetation reef kind of southsoutheast of halfmoon island. its a good spot for muskies and im sure northerns too. the shallow rocks around the island must hold small mouth too. take it with a grain of salt, but if no one else answers at least its a place to start. good luck!

regards,

Thanks for the info. I think I,ll let the boys try a little of both and see how it goes. I am going to pick up a lake map or two to study also.

Walleyes, pike, smallmouth, and muskies are all avaialable in Wahkon bay. The shallower rocks is where you'll likely find the smallies. Trolling or casting along the weedlines is where you'll find the pike/muskies. The West side of Half Moon, Upper Twin, and Lower twin are all good bets for walleyes during primetime hours.

Good luck!

computerboy nailed it. I too have a small aluminum and very rarely venture outside the bay, and it's not just because of the boat, but because there is some good fishing to be had in Wahkon. Keep an eye out for a tan alumacraft with a 50hp yamaha with a casting seat (and an overweight dude with the sleeves ripped off his shirt) up front, and stop by and say hi! smile.gif

      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.
