Croixflats any luck in Afton? Where abouts does a guy access the river down that way? I fished around catfish bar from the wisconsin side last year didn't have much luck except for a couple sturgeon and a stray sauger here and there. Or are you going further south than that?

I just got back was a bust by the catfish bar. Had a few chasers and 1 14 inch crappie. Going out to the ymca flats tomorrow. I forgot did get 3 10 inch walley. Like clock work fish came around sunset but Like I said no takers.

Hit a patch of sand that previous fisherman left. dull my auger real fast. Talk to the guy next to us apparently these idiots were horsing around on the catfish with the wheelers and got stuck and brought the sand out with them and I found it. What the heck were they doing ripping up private land. mad

Average of 12 inches by catfish bar in Afton maybe thicker further north. It occurred to me there is less open water down there than previous years. Must be because of the power plant is releasing cooler water.

I'll be stuck using an old strikemaster now the nils is down till I get the new blades I ordered. Should Have ordered extra ones earlier. Oh well I'll have 2 now. Don't no when I'll have time to send the dull ones to Surface Tension.

The strikemaster is a good auger but not a nils.

If I catch them guy there gonna be picking sand off themselves for weeks. Na, just venting.

I'll have to get ya down here, fishing is slow but it is nice to have the hole lake practically to ourselves. Peaceful. Was fun watching the Trumpeter Swans other birds frolicking in the open water. Did I just say frolicking

Kept 2. A 10" and an 11" threw a couple back, caught a couple silvers. Then a guy came and set up 15' from me! So I left. Guess he wanted that spot worse than me.

      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!

      Thanks guys!
    • ozzie
      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!

      Hello, I am planning to spend a week with family at either Pelican or Vermillion in late July, and need to commit to just one. From what I know, both are great. I have been to Pelican in 15 years ago and liked it, but I've always been intrigued by Vermillion. I would appreciate thoughts and recommendations on both lakes, experiences at particular resorts. The family loves fishing for pike and I would like another crack at a Musky, but the main idea is to show the kids (9, 8, 6) the beauty of the area and build great memories. Thank you,   David
