The Saugers were hitting good by Prescott last night. I was out between 5pm and 7pm Monday night and caught about 20 Saugers and Walleyes. All of the Walleyes were small to very small as was the case for many of the Saugers. Ended up keeping 6 Saugers from 15" to 18". First time I have taken home a limit so this was a very good night for me. The fish were in 25' and hitting on jig/minnow or 3way with plain hook/minnow. I tried running 2 lines but only caught fish on the pole that was actually jigging. I seemed that if you were not actively jigging you were not catching fish. A big thanks to all that have given tips on catching Walleyes, because if it were not for you I would not have tried some of these techniques.

I had a similar experience on Sunday night, lots of dinks, I had 7 all eyes and none over 14. I got a couple on my stinger. I am wondering if anyone has preferences of stingers and how they like to rig them. Just using a jig we where losing all of our bait. So we tried rigging with stingers, DO you like to hook the stinger into the bait? Top or bottom? Hopefully getting back on the water this weekend.

I tried Sunday morning and got several walleyes shy of 15 inches. In a way, no fish fry, but it was fun catching them.

      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.
