Well, there's also a pretty nice watch on the bottom of the lake now on the east shoreline, thanks to my impatience and the trolling motor sticking... Popped right off and into the lake on sunday evening.

Oh, and only picked up little crappies. Not a good night.

On the off chance someone snags it (I know, unlikely), I cna identify it and would be willing to pay a reward for the return.

What kinda watch is it and where exactly was it? I might have to break out the scuba gear. laugh

NE side of the lake. It's a Tissot. Nothing that expensive or fancy, but also not your $50 special either. You can imagine the look on my face when it hit the water. Also, there were a few choice words that I'm not too proud of that slipped out. I actually have the spot marked with GPS, or pretty darn close. It's in about 16 FOW, and I was really close to jumping in after it. However, it sank awefully fast. I'm glad I didn't. With my luck, I would have ruined my key fob for my car and lost my sunglasses.

Fishuhalik - If you actually have scuba gear and would be willing to do a little diving for it, maybe we could work something out??? If you're interested, email me at ameyers41 at yahoo dot com

Too bad it's not ice fishing season where it would be easy to punch a dozen holes and drop the camera down. I dragged the biggest daredevil I had for a short time, but alas, no luck.

Went out last night. Gorgeous night to be on the lake but the fishing was poor. Out for about 3 hours casting spinner baits until sun down and only snagged one largemouth. It was a nice 17" 3 pounder, but that was the only fish we caught.

I fished medice a few weeks ago and could only find bass in 2-5ft. of water. mainly back in that little area by the beach. Caught 4 nice bass for the tourney for just over 10lbs. A lot of northerns too. Another spot where we had success fishing was in by the marina right in front by the thick weeds. hope this will help someone

Went out last night and fished from 6-8pm and only picked up one bass. Water temp was around 75 and the water was really dirty. I mostly fished weedlines in 10-14 FOW. I am guessing that was the problem. Beautiful night though.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      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?
