What did I do wrong?

Recommended Posts

Tom7227

I am a novice at predator hunting but went out and gave it a try tonight.

I got a Johnny Stewart digital. The first set up was up in the hay mow of a barn overlooking a pretty open 30. I ran through 3 calls on the box and used a dying rabbit mouth call. The second set was about 1/4 mile from the first and we set up in a snowfence blind and called. Very shortly after I called the first time 2 trail cameras about 75-100 yards east went off and I thought I had something moving fast our way. I called 3-4 more times over 15 minutes or so and nothing showed up.

Did I call too much, too many varieties of calls?

Over the past couple of weeks 2 large coyotes and a red fox have shown up on the cameras so I know something is in the neighborhood.

We had a good time but it would be nice to know a bit more about it. Books and magazines and FM can only get you so far.

Thanks for anything you can point out.

Tom

i don't know what you did so called wrong but given the info what i may have done would be, since the cameras tipped you off, and lets assume one is responding and closing in at 75-100yds, use your eyes and call more subtle,squeak or be silent,let him show himself out of his curiosity. they're all learning experiences. he also could have winded you.

Maybe you didn't do anything wrong, maybe the camera flash spooked them.

      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!

      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

      Esox, couldn't find the online guide service in the last two issues of th Timberjay.  Could you please provide a link or a hint as to where you found it?

      I would say try Warroad casting spoons, spinners. Have heard of people catching walleyes there. Or there is a fishing pier in Baudette Bay of the Rainy. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55
