Walleye,Crappie by day, Big Pike by night!

Recommended Posts

Traxxx

Fishing the last few days has been very good. With all the snow, we have been seeing quite the day bite. A couple days ago we had a good bite from 11am-2pm on Gull and they ended up with six eater walleyes and a dozen perch. Crappie minnows and rainbows were the ticket. These all came off the weedline in 15 fow. The crappie/sunfish bite has been very good during the day, with small jigging spoons producing alot of fast action. The last two nights have produced a couple monster pike, after dark. Last night was a 36" on a 1/8 ounce jiggin spoon around 6:30pm and tonight was a pig 40" that hit a big spearing sucker decoy on a tip-up inside the house,around the same time. grin

Eastman,

I typically use a 1/8oz Lindy Rattlin Flyer tipped with a shiner head or a buckshot spoon with a minnowhead. On the second line, I will use a plain or glow hook under a bobber,with a whole minnow. I usually fish next to the weedlines in the mornings or evenings. During the day I will move out deeper depending on the conditions. Look for hard bottom areas,humps,points,inside turns, weedbeds..ect. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Haven't seen much vehicle traffic yet. I've pulled a house out with my truck, not too far from shore though. I think a sled would be the best option right now. You should be able find a few over by the access there.

Nice pics. Probably had something similar on last night, the battle only lasted a minute though, line broke.

      What sd card shows the best contours for the Canadian side of namakan lake. I have the navionics us- Canada but it only shows 5 ft increments. Looking for 1 ft. Thanks in advance.

      @Getanet Tough weekend for learning new water.  If you head up that way again shoot me a pm.  I have a lot of time on Cass and usually do pretty well.  I will be up there the second week of June for a couple weeks.

      Topped out at 55 degrees Sunday afternoon.  Did ok on panfish, just really tough fishing in the howling wind.  The male crappies are getting really dark.

      I love the location of the Retreat Lodge, never stayed there though.

      I finally got out fishing last week on Thursday. I used a gulp alive minnow. one of the smaller ones, and it worked great. I put it on a pink ratso with a white body and the gulp on it and the crappies and bluegills would not leave it alone. Other baits were not as effective that afternoon.

      I am helping out with the MN SATT (high school fishing) and Classic Bass Pro tournament trail to help fill 20 more boat marshal spots on Le Homme Dieu and the chain on June 14, 2019.  As a boat marshal you will be placed in a boat with some of top bass pros in Minnesota and the country.  The likes of Dean Capra, Seth Feider, John Figi, Matt Peters,  and many more top pros fish these events.  (not sure if they are fishing the Le Homme Dieu event or not, but it gives you an idea of the caliber of anglers fishing this trail and the opportunity you could have to be in their boat!) Your job would be to record fish on an app and make sure the anglers are following all the rules of the trail.  There is much more information on the sign up page and if you have additional questions about what is require you can call my cell 612-819-8500.  We opened this up to High School Anglers first, and now we are opening it up the general public.  You must be 13 years or older and this is a great opportunity to learn something new by just being in the boat with some of these anglers.  Here is a link to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b084ba5ad2ba6fb6-classic2  sign up before the spots are filled up!

      Hello David, we visited Vermilion for years until purchasing some land in the Frazer Bay / Smarts Bay area. We have stayed at a number of resorts, but really enjoyed Retreat Lodge due to the owners, reasonable prices and fantastic fishing within 2 miles of where it is located! Good luck with your decision!   Vermilion is a one of a kind lake!

      for crappies gulp alive 2.5 black shad is a great bait for me set on a 1/16oz jig.  tube jigs are great also!
