I find these actions unbelievable.  Some folks think our environment is their toilet and somebody else's problem.

winter fishing and summer fisher men are very different people.

I live near a public access and I will have to disagree with you. Pigs are pigs any time of the year.

That, unfortunately is true.  The difference in the winter is their junk gets on the lake and stays for more to see.

I would actually say summer fisherman are worse because they can toss stuff in the lake and not be as worried that a CO will see it because it goes to the bottom rather then sit on the ice. If you are caught leaving garbage on the ice they should throw your fishing license down the hole and never let you have another one.

The enforcement for littering crimes (and yes, it is a crime) is difficult. Once a perp has left the area, it is hard to pin it on someone. But I think if we all keep vigilant and utilize the technology we have (cell phone videos, pics, gps), we could start to mitigate it some. There should also be a zero-tolerance law that revokes fishing (and hunting) privileges for LIFE if the crime can be proven. These slobs need to be held accountable for fouling OUR resources...the world is not their dumping ground.

The COs should find a way to issue a citation if the is any garbage on the ice during a check, even if the sportsman say they will clean it up before they leave.

I’ve seen so much crap this year definetly the worst I’ve ever seen. All over small lakes big lakes you name it. Last weekend we found a spot that had many glass beer bottles, cigirates all over, wax worms and plastic containers, propane bottles and just garbage. Every lake I’ve been to it’s been like this all year. People have no respect for the environment these days also no respect for fellow anglers. Somthing needs to be done.

So sad to see some people just don't have the respect for are lands and water and total environment Run across this stuff all the time while hunting and fishing. I cant even tell you how many couches, matresses and Tv's ive came across on some back woods trails

      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.
