Was out on Green early Friday morning with a couple buddies. We had a decent topwater bass bite from about 6:30 to 8 AM or so. Nothing big, but they were hitting buzz baits, frogs and spooks. Fun times!

There is a TON of milfoil on that lake. Most of the fish we caught were around the edges. Lots of boats out there later in the morning. Most of them anchored off the milfoil edge and were bobber fishing.

The carp were spawning and breaking surface like crazy.

I went out there last Wed. for an hour and half and couldn't find anything for panfish.....they were just not where they should be...haha but we tried different areas and depths but the water was so stained that we went to Blue and caught a few pannies....I looked back in my fishing diary and notice that green was the same way last year until the mid of July then the action was non stop until mid-sept

Yeah, I couldn't believe how stained the water was on Green. We actually hit bottom in one spot and couldn't see it.

The sunnies on Blue haven't been easy pickings like they usually are, not in the shallows at least.

Blue is crazy that in just one week there were thick weeds in my fish (crappie) holding areas and then like that they were gone!!! The weed treatment they used this year worked and it killed off alot of weeds........

well what ever they used last year didn't do the trick as my weedliines were there all year and this year from fathers day (sunday) to the next Sunday my thick weedline I was working disappeared.......this weedline was there all last year...still found the fish it just took a little longer

Oz,

Did you notice the water turned green much earlier this year? I wonder if that has something to do with it. I remember going up in early to mid June and the water already looking like pea soup like it usually does in August.

Well Juan, soon wound up being last night from 7 till 10. I think we fished in your trail from last Friday for awhile. Many of the bass we were catching had hook marks in their mouths already.

We found another school later that were clean though.

A beautiful night to be out there.

How many did you get Wanderer? Were you fishing topwaters?

I'll have to give it another try. I didn't have much time to explore last Friday.

Yeah, we were fishing buzz baits. We had about 25 blow ups and landed around 15. Biggest was around 3 pounds, most were 2-ish.

We had a better size average last year but less numbers. Hmmm, can't quite tell wich one was more fun.

Nice! I haven't had any consistent topwater action for a long time until then. I'll have to give it a try in the evening some time.

There's endless mats of milfoil slop to throw buzzbaits and frogs into.

We probably missed more fish than we caught but it's still fun watching them hit it.

Boy is green really green out. I dont think I have ever seen the lake that green before. I looks like pea soup. Just last week it was pretty clear too.

Fishhuntnboy,

We were out there about 3 weeks ago and the water was so stained you couldn't see the bottom in two feet of water. My motor started dragging before we knew how shallow it was.

I'd hate to see it now if it got worse. Have any luck?

Yea its weird how that lake changes every week. Cause last week I was shocked when i saw it was clear and then this week it was that green.

I wasnt fishing out there. I was at the access working and checking boats. Everyone I talked to wasnt doing to well. Could have been since the water was so green.

had a friend go out there yesterday...he said he had the boat backed in the water looked down and told the driver to pull foward and get the boat out of the water. He said it was the worst he has seen it that you couldn't see barely an inch into the water.....and we have fished it in some pretty mucky conditions

Juan yea thats the job. This is my second year and final year doing it. Its been fun tho.

Ozzie i think i kno who you are talking about. I talked to a guy and his wife and they had the boat unloaded and then told his wife we are leaving and loaded it back up. I dont blame them. I wouldnt even step a foot in that lake right now.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
    • Mike89
      then use the BB gun after catching them!!!    and then enjoy rabbit dinner for revenge!!!
