They keep getting worse


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I went to my first spot on North Arm and was hovering in neutral looking for some fish on sonar. A boat was headed right at me and the hump I was on. I kept waiting for them to veer off. All I could see was a big black blob in the front of boat. Still coming right at me and closing fast. I keep looking for a face and a slow down of boat - no such luck.

Finally they start slowing some but still headed right at me. I figure game warden or somebody that is looking for me. Still bearing down on me. Still no face and I finally see the guy in front is turned around facing rear (wearing dark coat) but driver is hidden.

I keep thinking they are bound to slow down and talk to me. Eventually it is either move, or get rammed. I back up enough to avoid collision and they stop THREE feet off my bow and toss in a marker. Finally the driver looks over a sees me. "I didn't mean to get so close." I had to leave before I did something I would regret. What a bunch of losers.

Probably saw your picture on the internet, have to start telling everyone how bad the north arm fishing is. Hopefully it wasn't on the big fish hump. I'm leaving shortly, will bring cherry bombs.

Hey Capt... I would make sure the insurance is up to date and hold your ground. Or maybe you just have a reputation for catching fish. Or some people just like sitting on your lap while fishing. Its amazing people act like this just to catch fish.

Morning John,

Moving was the best thing you could have done. With so many spots to fish I'm sure you had no problem catching a few. Was it a local? I know some people only fish 2 spots. Still, pretty sad.

Nothing like a boombox or radio tuned to RAP at high volume to make others move some where else.

i feel your pain...i used to fish miles lacs lake every weekend and moved here 3 yrs ago and never went back after i sold my cabin there. the word must be out on how great the fishing is here cause as of late ive had a hell of a time getting on some reefs and spots i normally never see a boat on. i normally anchor up and cast and jig with a jig and a minnow if there is a little bit of a blow...so..along comes a black lund with a 250 on it from ill. and they got so close i did a flip cast and banked it off the side of his 60k lund with a quarter ounce vegas jig..i dont get excited about to much and i didnt about this either its just not good fishing in my opinion. there is only 219,999 other acres to fish..i guess i expect it on miles lacs but not here. im not complaining though...there is alot of times im pounding the fish and stop to look around and there isnt a boat in site and smile and think to myself...i love this lake!!!

Hi Z85,

Well how did you do on your electric motor search??? As far as folks pulling up on us. I don't like it either & have been known to make a comment if I feel the person is being a complete jerk., but to be honest it doesn't happen that often, also things will really change now as the lake traffic goes way down. Most of those folks who are doing that are use to fishing where if you want to fish you have to crowd in., and their here a very limited time...so I guess we just grin...lip off & bear it!!!

Sincerely,

Fishmeister

What kind of electric motor you looking for?

I have a Minn Kota bow mount 80 lb 24 volt HAND opperated that is for sale. It works fine. I just replaced it with one of them new GPS Minn Kotas that allow you to hover over a spot with the touch of a button.

$200. or Will trade for antique tackle.

I can give some good bass spots on North Arm but won't be of much use to you in this week's tourney.

Please call or send me a direct email.

      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?

      then use the BB gun after catching them!!!    and then enjoy rabbit dinner for revenge!!!

      Yep crazy. 🤪 I played goalie in HS and my two grandsons play hockey now.  
    • gimruis
      Hockey gear in general is very expensive.  I was in a Pure Hockey last month to get my skates sharpened and while they were doing it I looked around at gear.  A new pair of CCM/Bauer customized skates can easily top 1000 bucks.  Then you need everything else.  It would be several thousand before you had everything.  And then your kid grows like a weed so you need to buy bigger gear.   Then there's goalie gear.  That's enough to buy a small boat.   Nothing cheap about that sport by any means.

      That's a good idea Mike.  But, my sweet wife who's never killed anything in her life, wants them all dead and their skulls on poles! 👹  🤣
