Just wanted to say good luck with the season starting tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a safe and memorable hunt with those Toms spitting a drumming in your face. Just remember it's not the gobbler it's the gobble,for the first timers out their they are like nothing you have hunted before they will tie you in knots and have you ready to quit some times and then it can change in a second.

Good luck be safe and make sure of your target. I cant wait for the pictures to start rolling in tomorrow.

Haven't been online in a while but scored last Wed on a 23lb with 1" hooks and 9.5" beard - should have pics soon.

Being older for sure and maybe wiser I stayed in bed and listened to it rain. Went out late morning and called one in right away but couldn't seal the deal. Had a pair show mild interest but never came in range. Couple hours later after a move I believe one of the pair made a fatal mistake.

Seems like hit and miss depending on who you talk to - overall numbers are down around here.

My pops heads out tomorrow - he went out yesterday morning to listen and heard 3 different birds in the area.

Good luck to all who will be heading out yet!

Went out to scout last night and had to cut it short as I kept running into strutting toms. Saw 6 in about 15 minutes and decided to back out before I bumped too many. I still have a week and a half to wait.

Getting excited to hunt Saturday! Alot of turkeys around and hopefully I can call a big tom in! Where my cabin is, I hear them in the morning when the crows are calling and they are in the woods within a hundred yards from me. Too bad it's next to a bunch of lake cabins as this would be a slam dunk for a gobbler! grin

      I agree with Rayguy. A lot of ecological changes happening everywhere and I think we’re seeing that on the Whitefish chain. Keep looking for new spots and new structure. Fish are still there. It’ll be interesting to see how Fall fishing goes. I am planning on fishing the next couple of days. I’ll let you know how I do.

      Ace is right, no need to run to far to find walleyes! They are all over the East end where you will be staying. The number one rule is "trust your depth finder"! I never fish a spot unless I see a few fish there! Lindy rigs, spinner rigs, slip bobber rigs, and jigs will all catch walleyes that time of the year. Cliff

      Thank you, my husband and I usually go to Kabetogama . but we are going to go later, had a chance to go here for the first time(Labor day weekend)and are excited to try it. Found a private cabin to rent very reasonable in that bay.

      I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.

      No brush or yard waste burning today through Sunday The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an air quality alert for today through Sunday for northern Minnesota.    As a result, the Department of Natural Resources will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste for all areas north of Alexandria, including Mille Lacs and Pine counties. Burn restrictions may expand as smoke from the Canadian fires drifts south. For updates and the air quality forecast, check the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      If you are looking for Walleyes stay on the east end. There is no need to go running all over the lake to catch them. Daisy bay has Walleyes available as does Big bay which in my opinion has some of the best Walleye fishing on the lake.  Trolling cranks works this time of year, as well as Lindy rigging, or pulling spinners on a bottom bouncer. You can also find some decent evening slip bobber fishing close to where you are staying.  Good luck and have fun, you won't be disappointed.     "Ace" "It's just fishing man".

      Anyone that takes 16 years to boat a Muskie most likely doesn't target them all the time.  I average one Muskie every time I go out on Vermilion. It really isn't that hard if you do your homework and do the little things that it takes to be successful. Get out there and cast, cast, cast until your arms fall off.     "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on fishing the lake, we will be staying at a cabin by Daisy Bay / Arrow Head point. Not asking for your hot spots, just wondering if the area where the cabin is, if fishing for Walleye is close by. I here talk about east vs. west side. Not sure what that means? Any help would be great.
