Back in the 70's Sucker was a great lake. Sunnies over 10", crappies over 15", trophy walleyes and all the hammer handles a guy would ever want for the pickling jar. It was a great place to be a kid in the summer. I never caught a bass in that lake until just before we sold the place.

I used to fish it, gaining access through the little resort, I think it was called "Overby's" or something like that. And yes, it certainly did have some nice fish in it. A friend of mine took an 11 1/2 pound walleye out of there.

It was Overby's. That is where we would launch every spring when we got the pontoon boat. The old timer that had the place was pretty particular about who he would let in. I know many people were turned away.

How has blue been lately? I was thinking about putting my wheele house out there for the remaining weeks out there (Ice Permitting). Its on swan right now but considering walleye are closed thought it might fun to try for some pannies out there and the daughter is able to come with the wheele house out.

It's still kicking out some fish, some days better than others. Also depends on where you set up. It should get GOOD with the late-ice season getting underway.

Blue usually stays good year round haha. Ya just have to be willing to move around and find the fish. Im still hearing from people who are set up near the "community holes" that they are pulling out real good sized panfish on a daily basis.

I really should be fishing it more as I always hear good things about it and I do not chase the pan fish during the winter as much as I should, always after the eyes. I think im gonna get out there during this later ice period as the fishing should get great.

      Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water.  I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike.  Thanks and #tightlines!

      Heading up to chain for a couple weeks.  Need some general info on the panfish bite.  They still shallow?  Got a couple grandkids coming up and any info sent on the panfish action will be appreciated.  Thanks   Ray guy

      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.

      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.

      If I have where you are right then lake Nokomis is near you. There’s lots of good walleye and crappie in there. If not I might suggest Medicine lake. There’s a handful of shore areas to fish and some easy to access kayakable areas. Lots of northerns and panfish in that lake. Look for weed edges and either cast spoons, spinnerbaits, etc for pike or bobber and work for panfish. Also some bonus walleye in there from time to time.

      Wild trout are more cautious, and basically smarter. I rarely do well with flashy or bright lures on streams with wild trout. But when I fish designated trout lakes up north, it usually doesn’t matter what color I use. But I’ll give the flashy stuff a slight edge.

      Went wading on the upper croix today. Started at my secret spot, but high water made it tough to get around. Fish were fairly active though. Caught 5 decent bass and a little pike. Zipped up to highway 70 bridge and gave that a try. Caught 2 really nice walleyes here. But like the other spot, high water made wading not possible. Might come back here with my boat though 🤔

      I just moved to Minnesota, I live in Maplewood and looking for somewhere near by to fish for catfish from the shore. Any suggestions?
