GC im heading out this morning, will try a few spots but im not very hopeful. Not the best panfishing lake. I told jack that it should be a walleye/crappie tourney. Ill be in a small tan pickup with a black topper and a fish trap. -Spicer

Fishing has been beyond bad this year. That tournament could be a joke...

It's in cannon falls and the weigh in was held at about 1 to 2 p.m. The fishing was pretty slow. The bass were more easily caught though. Gill's and crappies were hard to catch.

byllesby should be one of the last lakes on your list to try if your looking to go out and catch a good number of fish.

I went to the launch yesterday and learned they moved the weigh in from 1 to 2 and added the White Bass to the list of fish. I'm assuming the Saturday pre-fish didn't get much results and looking at the weigh results of the tournament, the fish caught for most of the groups was very low.

Was anybody on the lake during the tourney? Where were these guys spending most of their time?

sounded like they were catching the blue gills and crappie by the rock wall by the camp ground.

I fished the rock wall yesterday. Still not real aggressive. I was actually targeting walleyes with not luck. Think I'm sticking to the Zumbro, it's much closer.

      Any updates as to the slush conditions on Vermilion, particularly off the staked trails?  
    • smurfy
      i keep hearing that this slush wont freeze up. i just cant fathom that with the low temps forecasted it wont?????????   anyone else with thoughts????
    • arctic_scrap1
      Yeah I tried the wrench yesterday. I Can't get it to move with a load on it. With no load on the jack it does go up and down with the electric motor though. I ended up ordering a whole new jack since they're only $200. This one I'll take apart and try to fix it and keep it as a spare.

      Was out checking ice.....on west side....even though there is good ice closer to shore, when neighbor was trying to plow a road out farther, a lot of water was coming out of a crack. Please do not go out with a larger truck!!!!!

      I'm also thinking about going up this weekend. We were thinking about Barnacles or Red Door. It will be our first time out of either resorts. Any recommendation or opinions about the resorts and their roads? Thanks in advance!

      Thank you.. and thanks for the advise on the Duluth forum! I will look that up and subscribe.

      Thanks for your response! Sounds like fishing is pretty much the same on this end as Ontonagon. Aside from the rock reefs and possibility of snags on the bottom. I don't run lead core but have a pair of downriggers and some dipsies. I fish a lot on the surface with my Otter Boats with Rapalas and some spoons. I always run at least one dodger or flasher in the mix with a Howie's fly or a spin n glo behind it. Thanks again for your input! I appreciate it! Hopefully I can have a good weekend fishing!

      Glad your back Bryan! So far my season hasn't been one for the books but it haven’t been horrible. I’ve been waiting for your videos good to see your back man!
    • JohnnyM
      Thanks for the input!  I definitely don't want to snag one of my rigger weights! I have otter boats I run off a mast on both side of the boat. I run surface spoons and stick baits off the lines. Works well out of Ontonagon and sounds like it will work here also. I have a few dipsies also but do not have lead core on any of my set ups. I run a flasher or dodger on one of my lines also. Usually on one of my dipsies. I pretty much sounds like fishing off Ontonagon except for the snags on the bottom of the north shore. Thanks for your wisdom! I appreciate it!

      I drove by the lake this weekend and saw a large amount of vehicles and houses out there.  We are finding the crappies either out deep in the holes suspended or they are hugging weeds.  I know huge difference but don't be afraid to go shallow or deep.  I wasn't too far from Crystal fishing 6 feet of water Saturday fishing cabbage and getting a mixed bag of panfish, pike, and bass coming through.
