Hi all, I am coming up this weekend and was looking for a guide friday morning. We are staying on the west end and want to learn the spots and techniques for walleyes on the west side. I know it is late notice but maybe someone can help us out. Thanks!!

You wouldn't happen to know his number would you. I can't seem to find it. Is he reasonable on his prices. Thanks for the help.

You can also try Terry Sjoberg (ACE guide service) he is based on the east end, but fishes the whole lake.

Good Luck!

How does this work? I see a couple of posts deleted. Do you have to be on an approved list for someone to recommend you as a guide?

To place contact information for a guide, they need to be a sponsor or advertiser on Fishing Minnesota. One can name a guide but no links or contact info can be posted. If you read forum policy this may help with your question.

I hope I answered your question.

There's a lot of rules, but they're all there to keep this forum clear of ads and solicitations in the end. I'm all for that. The price to pay is that we all have to be careful about using contact information and websites. Before making your first post to the forum, read the forum policy. When in doubt, re-read the forum policy. If still in doubt, send an email to the forum administrators (from the policy webpage) and ask them first. It's much easier than getting censored.

Except the guys that got edited had hundreds of posts, so reading before first post wouldn't have made much difference. Just a slip I would venture.

Slip Sinker

Gary The Guide is the best guide on the lake. He is fun to fish with and always puts you on fish no matter the depth or time of year. Additionally, if you plan to fish Vermilion again, Gary will tell you what to look for and even will mark your map with good spots. I highly recommend him.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem.

      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA

      Lake is connected to two others with zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of a zebra mussel in East Loon Lake in Otter Tail County. East Loon Lake is between and connected to East Spirit Lake and Sybil Lake, both of which were confirmed as having zebra mussels in 2016.  A lake user contacted the DNR after finding a single adult zebra mussel in East Loon Lake, which DNR specialists confirmed through photos and the specimen itself. No additional zebra mussels were found during a follow-up survey. “It’s helpful that an alert individual contacted us when they suspected they’d found a zebra mussel,” DNR assistant invasive species specialist Mark Ranweiler said. “Because they kept the zebra mussel, we were able to confirm the species identification.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Zebra mussels can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species. More information is available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      ....is a City Park.  Land of Memories  with a lot of Minnesota and Blue Earth River shore access and I believe you can access the confluence of the rivers there as well.   Another attraction not really connected to fishing is Minneopa State Park with the falls on one side of the road and drive through buffalo herd area on the other.  Parks require a car window sticker for entrance.   Good Luck

      I like them when it's dead calm they seem to work great then. When it gets a little ripple on top not as effective but still learning with them. Thanks for the report jigginjim
    • Mike89
      class of 70 here, and the park across the river  is Land of Memories if I remember correctly...
