Anyone hooking anything decent out there? Was out yesterday for a bit and caught about 15 dink crappies. I threw the camera down in a spot that was around 22 ft. and was spinning the cam pretty fast around and I saw white and a huge eyeball and thought oh **** that's a body. Turns out it was the white from the underside jaw of biggest muskie I have ever seen in that lake. Nose to nose with the cam lol, scared the c r a p right outta me when I was spinning the cam. I thought for sure the camera was gonna get hit but it just sat there for about 2 minutes then turned and swam away. It was easily 45+. Needless to say there were no other fish in sight lol.

great little lake for some big time action. I fish this lake all the time during open water. But have yet to try the winter bite.

On Saturday, I saw a truck go through the ice in the bay near the bull rushes. Pretty interesting. Not sure why some would drive into the weeds like that. Anyone else see it?

It wasnt out there on Sunday....well if it sank maybe it was lol. Why anyone would drive through weeds is a good question. Maybe one too many Coors or possibly just lost would be my guess.

I just fish it open water too, glad to hear there is at least 1 muskie in there.

The whole front right tire went in. They eventually got it out. It was during the day too. Around 2 in the afternoon.

No reports lately? I have been thinking about heading out there in the next day or two and see how things go. I drove by the other day and noticed a small number of people on the N end and the S bay looked pretty full, other than that not many other spots. Are there any? I've fished the lake plenty in the summer only to catch a couple small bass and that's it! Maybe throwing a double cowgirl or a buldawg has something to do with my lack of success? Lol

If any of you are interested in hooking up with me out there let me know because I usually have an open chair. I have a blue Fish Trap Guide and I'll be driving a maroon colored S-10, swing by and say hi even if you are going out to fish in your own house.

      I have heard much of the same from friends that have been in there recently. They say the lake trout fishing is the best it has been in a long time and once everyone gets their trout the walleye fishing is awesome too! Great to hear!

      Fishing Vermilion has been slow for me. I have a couple friends here, one of whom grew up with a cabin on Trout, before the BWCA, that we visited as youngsters. We fish it every year looking for walleye but usually only catch bass. Today, in the rain, I had the absolute best walleye fishing ever. I have caught a 28” on Vermilion, but today caught my (larger) limit including 27”, 26”, a couple 24”s,etc. Beautiful fish- dark bronze with red/gold fins, The other guys did well, too. We were throwing back 15” fish. Great day. I sound like I’m bragging and maybe am, but Trout is back as a walleye lake. Leeches today, slooow drift with a Lundy rig, 14-20’ off points.  I’m 68. Best walleye fishing of my life- so far. Only regret is the red lab had to stay home. Boat is too small. RLG

      We have pretty good bass fishin’ in MN.  19 is a good one. 😎

      Anyone get out this weekend and care to share how fishing was? Will be heading Up tomorrow after work for a week at the lake. 
    • fins_n'_feathers
      The service up there is very spotty at best. I have AT&T and have a place in Sand Bay. At the cabin there is hardly any service and what there is usually comes from Canada. That being said a mile down the road it’s 4 bars of LTE. I can’t say exactly how service is at Island View but when we fish in Black Bay right around the corner there’s pretty good service. About as good as it gets on the lake. The farther East you go the worse it gets and fast.

      Someday I'll get a big one. 😆 I did pull a 19" Largemouth out of Weaver lake last year. The largest bass I've ever caught.

      Earliest memory for me was age 3 on the bank of the Miss with a cane pole.  Been through many cycles of “evolution”, if you will, including fishing tournament circuits.  That’s well behind me now since I fish to just enjoy it for what it is and where it takes me.  I’m drawn to water.   My most recent cycle has me chasing muskies a bit like @gimruis  They’re some freaky fish.  I just spent a week chasing them in Canada and witnessed some memorable encounters that made my hands shake and knees knock without even catching the fish that I saw!     Aside from the fish, there’s the deer that swim across the lake, the sow bear and cubs that huff/wheeze when you get too close and the loons that swim around the boat while you’re casting or make their chilling calls to their mates when they’re only 50 feet away.  Good long days on the water working in synch with a good partner, short but restful nights of sleep, and occasionally forgetting what day it is.   It’s a game that wakes up my senses and makes me feel whole.

      If nothing else, it’s a great excuse to get out of the house and go for an adventure! Bought what looks to be a very comprehensive book on the subject, quite a bit more to identification than I imagined. Nothing wrong with Spam😀

      We will be on Rainy Lake in the Island View area in a few weeks, coming up from Missouri. I have an iPhone and iPad with AT&T 4G cellular data and calling. How disappointed am I going to be in reception and especially the ability to use my Navionics charts up there?  Suggestions?  TIA
