End of May.middle of June-what's the fishing differences?

Recommended Posts

mbeyer

We've been visiting Vermilion the last week of May for many years. We chase wall eyes and smallmouth and do a pretty good job with both at that time. It looks like we'll one two weeks later and wonder what the differences will be? Will two weeks change things?

 

Eyes deeper?Mayfies? Smallmouth shallower? Top water?

 

i can't say I've ever been there in June. Is it a good fishing month?

All depends on the weather. Water temps, water levels, clarity all play a factor in the underwater environment. Every year is different.

Sorry for the poorly  written question. Yep, we can assume weather will be the major factor. Howabout this.....does the fishing historically get better or worse as June progresses?

I have never fished Vermillion, so here is my general observation.  Mid June is often the best time in the spring to fish.  Fish are very active at that time.  In May, the water often is still too cold.

I have always done better for walleyes in mid-June then I have done at the end of May.

Better and more stable weather at that time also!

By mid-June I am using both minnows and crawlers on my bait rigs.

I've been going to Ely for Memorial weekend the last 3 years, and can't catch smallies to save my life! I'm in Grand Marais 2 weeks after that, and the bass are practically jumping in the boat! So whatever the temp differences are in that time frame, make a huge difference. I would imagine the same would hold true for walleyes as well. HOWEVER!!! In mid June, you run the risk of hitting the infamous mayfly hatch :eek:

Not much chance of hitting the main May fly hatch on Vermilion in Mid June. Almost always the main May fly hatch is the last week of June and the first week of July.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
