Whisker Trout Slayer and I are planning on taking our wives out fishing all day Saturday and I was just curious if someone out there might be able to help me out with some info on a decent daytime 'gill bite going on? I haven't had much time to chase 'gills as the evening crappies have been distracting me as of late. I have an idea of where to start but fear the crowds that will be there that day. If it included being able to chase a flag or 2 as well that would be cool. I don't really care if there monsters just some steady action.

I may be able to send some one in the right direction of some slabs if you are interested in trading some info? If you don't wanna talk here email is [email protected] Thanks in advance.

I just want to chime in and say thanks for any info you get PDOGG. This will be my wifes first time ice fishing and is real excited to be going and doesn't want to get bored and not catch fish. She did ask if we will be drinking, which I replied of course!! It is part of the sport!!

We will let you know how we did and if she caught any fish.

I laid awake for awhile last night thinking this one out and although I had come up with one of the lakes that where brought up to me I have been emailed some pretty good info on other bites around the area. Thanks to all that helped and I will put up a report after this weekend on how we did.

Hey PDog sorry for not saying Hi to you yesterday at RFO! I wasn't sure if it was you or not because you got out of a van. I called KTapper and he said that you drive a van as well, my bad. If I would have seen the Duramax I would have known it was you.

Fished German yesterday in around a big group of houses. Caught a few fish but nothing to write home about. Think it had something to do with all of the people horsing around on the ice with there cars and trucks.

Herm sorry as well I figured it out when I seen the plate on your truck as I pulled away. Sounds like you should have followed me! grin The "Man Van" is a little lighter on it's feet so I like to use it when there is no snow!

      Any smallmouth reports?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.
