wmn luv me walleye fearme

was out at rogers last wednesday through sat. Wednesday thursday were great. Picked up about 25 walleyes each day. Most were 14-19 inches. Almost all deadsticking. Caught only about 4 with the spoon. Friday it slowed down a lot then saturday we hit winnie. Biggest were a couple of 22 inchers. People at rogers were great would go back there next time for sure. No perch, no crappies, no pike all walleyes

What do you mean by deadsticking? Rod, sinker, hook, with live minnow or are you using a bobber?

That is exactly what dead sticking is!!!!! I will jig mine every so often, but it just to wake to minnow up...

just minnow, glow jig (red worked best for us) and bobber. I wasnt even able to lure them in with the jigging spoon.

I was up there a few weeks ago and I would not jig a fish up... Glow pink jig or demon jij worked the best...

We went out of Rogers also. 46 walleyes and 1 northen. Jigging did little. Most everything was caught on rattle reels with bobbers.

Great weekend!! Jerry is wonderful. I'd recommend Rogers to anyone looking to catch fish!

i spoke to his wife when i was going in on wednesday for a while. Told her I was going to be there until saturday and was expecting to pay for 4 days of a road pass. She asked if i would be on red most of the time. Said yes told me they only charge for 1 day then. He had tons of spots plowed out for the wheelers which was great to. Spoke to a couple of the plow guys that run there operations out of there and even though i wasnt renting from them they were plenty helpful to.

Yep. Same experience. We ran into Jerry when we hit the lake. he was plowing. He said "follow me" and took us to a new road he had just plowed. He had about 6 "slips" plowed for people to use wheel houses or portables. He plowed another spot WAY down on the end and put me there. We caught fish!!

Satuday morning we had multiple new friends show up and jump into the other plowed spots.

Jerry and his wife are amazingly helpful!! We have gone out of many of the roads over the past few years. Rogers is right on the top, tied with one or two others. Jerry and crew do a great job of making you feel welcome, sharing recent experience and advice, and plowing an assortment of areas to fish. I'll be back up really soon!

      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.

      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.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale
