Heading up to Frazier for the first fishing trip of the season. Be there on June 29th through July 3 or 4th. Does it look like we will be competeing with the mayflys?

My wife and I had been doing quite well on nice sized Lake Vermilion walleyes. We have seen a definite "swing" to tentative hits, much smaller fish, and those caught burping mayflies while being unhooked. We have been marking fish that seem uninterested in anything we offer. On our last outing, adult mayflies were fluttering around the surface in a few places. Although we haven't seen the huge slicks yet, something is definitely happening cry. I figure the sooner we can get this thing over with, the sooner we can get back to the business of catching nice walleyes grin. Also, it generally means for us that it's about time to add crawlers to the bait buffet, and add floaters to the rig wink.

Good Fishing,

MarkB smile

Pretty slow walleye weekend for us around Moccasin Point area compared to what we usually do. Managed to put together a fish fry and bring a couple home but had to settle for 14" - 15" to get them. Di

I made a trip down to the far east end Armstrong Bay area yesterday for something to do, "The seas were angry that day my friend" Cold east wind, net result no fish, lot of clouds on the electronics, assume Mayflies, fished with crawlers. Shallow, deep. Also trolled Pike Bay for a while, by the old lumber yard (Box Factory) area not a thing. Good luck to all, Darrell.

Darrell,

That is the funny thing about Pike bay, can catch those buggers one day and go back and troll the same area the next and they don't want to bite. Must have something to do with the shallow water as to why they are so finicky. (plus they are probably full of bugs right now).

See you around. Darin

Darin, as you well know the wind lately has been incredible plus the rain makes for not much fun. At least is sounds like the weekend will be good for the weekenders anyways. That will be good. We will have to go out one day next week, if your around. Let's keep in touch. Later Darrell

Darrell, my schedule is pretty much wide open from Sunday on into next week, if you want to get out for a few hours. Let me know, maybe we can set something up and catch few fish and have a few MGD's.

Fished a couple hours this morning in big bay. Found a lot of activity on a reef but they were slow to go. Got a 15" right away and that was it. Took the kids there this afternoon and corked it for an hour with nothing. Hopefully this evening is better.

Edit Haha; its 625 and all of a sudden the rollers are coming in here. Tried to launch and the boat was like a pinball in the lift. No evening bite for me. This wind is getting old.....

Finishing two weeks on the west end. Two eaters and one slot walleye. Large mouth being caught where I've never seen them before. Blue Gill the size of a dinner plate and some huge perch. Northern seemed to be active for others around us who fished for them.

Seemed like some of the slot fish caught were close to 30".

We are not the greatest anglers, but overall a much slower year than the past years where we caught several walleye a day.

Darin, let's shoot for Monday morning, meet at the Y-store, 0700, drive to my place and go from there. Let me know.

Sorry everyone for making arrangements here but I don't think we can post phone numbers here or I guess I would not want to. Thanks for understanding.

Any good suggestions for catching some bluegills, sunnies or crappies on the East End? Would like to take the kids out for some faster action. If the walleyes are bitting, that might even be the ticket. Thanks !

Got an off day Monday so I'm headed up to the cabin for the first time (Moccasin pt). See the mayfly hatch is started so we might have a tough time with the walleyes but how is the smallmouth bite right now? Seems to me we've done very well dock fishing this time of year in the past.

Fished a reef this morning for s couple hours. Caught 4 doinks and lost a dandy. Took my 7 year old to cast for a while. I was hoping to get him a Smallie or something. I castes a bucktails and moved 1 very large fish. Thought she was going to bite. Very aggressive on the figure 8. Let her rest and went back but nothing.

Smallie fishing around Moc Point was VERY tough this past week. Fish were post spawn and few were biting. The cold and wind didn't help. The ones that did were good size. Friday when the weather finally improved, the mayflies were hatching. One of the few bass we caught had a mouth full of mayflies.

Lake Vermilion, 6/27/11

The walleye bite this week has been poor in some of my usual spots and very good in a few of the other spots.

All of my fish have been caught on mid-lake reefs and humps this week. Most are relating to the rock to sand transition points on the reefs. 27 feet to 33 feet is the sweet spot in these areas.

Bait rigs with either a minnow or a crawler is still the way to go on the East end of the lake.

May flies have been hatching heavily in many of the shallower bays and I have even seen a few popping to the surface in Big Bay the last couple of days. I expect to see the main hatch occur in Big Bay within a week or less!

Water temps. on the main lake have been around 65 degrees this week.

Good Fishing!

Hello...

I will be staying on the West end next week. With the water temp only being low to mid 60's, are the bass done spawning? I will be targeting SM Bass, LM Bass, Walleye and Pike. I'm just hoping to have action and will adjust target species accordingly. With this being the first trip here, I will take any advice with open arms.

Welcome to HSO!

Many SM bass are still on their beds and under docks yet.

Walleyes are biting well in some areas and I have heard that the pike are biting very well in the weedy areas.

Was on the West side between showers today. Got a couple eyes in the 30 foot range off a midlake hump. They seemed to like the leeches best. We were not out long so may have gotten some on crawlers but the water is still pretty cool.

Not much sign of mayflies but presume it will be soon.

Wondering how the fishing has been lately on Vermilion? I dont get to come up until the first part of august. We usually lindy rig with crawlers. Any other techniques that work well that time of year? Ive been wanting to troll cranks on Vermilion for a couple years but havent tried it yet. Would that be a good option that time of year?

Lake Vermilion walleyes are going the mayfly route for the most part. We found slicks all over Big Bay and Daisy Bay on our way out this morning. My folks are up for a few days and the fishing is just fast enough to keep things interesting grin. Water temps have warmed to a fairly constant mid 60's early morning reading and it had no problem warming to the upper 60's in short order today. We have totally abandoned the minnows and leeches are still working as our "bait of choice". My Dad tried crawlers for awhile this morning and had several hits but boated only one nice walleye. He switched to leeches and we had reasonably good luck. The hit is anything but tentative and we boated several really nice walleyes from 15"-16"+. The best fish of the day came on a leech and was 21.5". We fished a rocky reef surrounded by 35' water that topped out at 21'. The reef is fairly long and wide in a couple spots. We found the walleyes on a 21' "tip" of the reef where it fell sharply off into 34' of water. Additional walleyes were picked up drifting the edges of the reef in 25'-30' of water. 4' leaders caused a major snag problem and I had to shorten things up, add a floater, and use #8 hooks. That solved all snag problems.

Here's a picture of my Dad with the "fish of the day". whistle

The mayflys are causing problems, but, if you find fish(a hit, see them on sonar, etc.), stay there and work it over. It could pay dividends wink.

Good Fishing,

Thanks for the info.

How long does the hatch typically affect the bite? I will be up Saturday for a week and it looks like the weather pattern is finally stabilizing. LM, SM, Pike and Walleye will be the targets and hope the main hatch doesn't kill the fishing for the week.

Thank you.

I think you would get lots of different answers to your first question. I think some fishermen would tell you that the hatch doesn't bother their fishing at all! One poster this year said he liked the mayfly hatch and felt it improved fishing(for him). I believe these walleyes have been munching mayflies for a week to 10 days now. The surface temps are right for the main hatch and I believe I saw the signs of it today. Mayflies shouldn't bother Northern Pike at all, and the walleyes will bite during and after the hatch. I believe bigger walleyes will hit just as readily right now as anytime. When you find fish, stick with them.

Have a great week on Beautiful Lake Vermilion.

Came up on Monday to Moccasin pt and fished through the rain all afternoon/evening after getting lightning'd off the lake in the morning. Short biting fish were the story of the day. Lots of bites on minnows in 15 feet but only managed to pick up 2 small ones and a jumbo perch. Smallie fishing under the docks had the same results. Couple smaller ones and at least 10 missed fish apiece. Tuesday morning there was a mat of mayflies on the boathouse before we left. Did have a nice muskie grab something (mayfly?) off the surface about 20 ft from the boat, kind of cool to see.

Same area as yesterday. This is the largest of the morning. The school of walleyes that we found this morning appeared to be mainly slot fish. The fish that we caught that were not slot fish were all 16"+. The bait was leeches, 25' saddle between 20' humps, deep water all around. The wind allowed us to leave the motor in reverse and remain fairly stationary staying right on top of them smirk. Bottom bouncing the leeches was deadly.

My Dad enjoys seeing his picture on the internet. I told him he had to catch another big walleye wink. Here it is:

full-32496-10005-002.jpg

I caught a 23.5" walleye this morning that inhaled the leech. Upon cutting the line at the hook, I noticed another "gold" hook in the fish's gut shocked. Probably doesn't prove anything but it sure gave me satisfaction seeing that gut hooked fish can survive if properly released. This fish was in perfect shape and appeared to have a full belly grin.

Good Fishing,

Caught 10 this morning with clients. Most were in the 13" to 14" range.

One really nice 30 incher caught by my client.

Lindy with crawlers and minnows again on a 26 ft. sand bar.

Mayflies were pretty much wall to wall on the north side of Pine Island yesterday. By mid-afternoon the north shore smelled pretty bad eek. This morning, Big Bay had mayfly slicks from one end to the other. I took my wife out this morning for a few hours until the wind got pretty stout from the west. 21' this morning. All leeches. This one was my wife's best for the morning grin.

      On the south end...  On the lake, the focus is on the May 15, 2021 Fishing Opener for walleyes.  There is much optimism as fishing in the Rainy River this spring was excellent and reports of good fishing from the spring season on the lake was also good.
      The limit for walleyes and saugers during the open season is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  There is a slot limit in which all walleyes 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One can be kept over 28 inches.  
      Pike anglers are still catching fish in back bays. The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.    
      On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers are enjoying catch and release through 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season opens up again on 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.
      Good numbers of sturgeon have been running in the Rapid River near Clementson just east of Baudette this past week.  These fish are incredible to see up close, but are also very much protected and respected.
      Anglers looking to this weekend and the opener.  Typically, there is some good walleye fishing in the river early in the season, such as this weekend.
      Up at the NW Angle...  A few anglers fishing pike in back bays but most looking forward to the May 15th fishing opener.  The go to walleye spots come the opener will be shoreline and island structure and underwater points.  The technique, a jig and a minnow!
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      I will be in the area camping in a couple of weeks. Wondering if these two lakes are any good for shore fishing for kids. Been trying to do research but there hasn't been much update on the lakes! Would love to catch a few trout for the kids to enjoy. Any tip/advice would be great thanks!!

      Illegal entry into CANADA. If you fish the boundary waters Minnesota and Canada. and you usually cross imaginary boundary between Canada and Minnesota DO NOT DO THAT THIS YEAR. I am goin go trip to Crane Lake 22nd-29th of May 2021. Looked into buying non resident 8 day to cross boundary to fish in Canada have been doing it for years. Well if you cross that boundary today your truck, boat, trailer will be confiscated and you and anyone else in boat with will be detained. Also there are HUGE fines with this criminal entry illegal entry into Canada. If you have your doubts you can call  U.S. Border Patrol International Falls Minnesota at 218-285-3423 or the U.S. Customs and Border Protection International Falls Minnesota at 218-283-2541 and last Canada Border Services Agency...at 800-461-9999. There is no mention of this in Minnesota's DNR Fishing Regs for 2021. I am afraid there might be a lot of people unaware of this.. I was not until I did a little digging and made some phone calls.. ok be safe out there..

      On the south end...  Pike anglers catching fish in back bays. Deadbait on a quick strike rig under a bobber, spoons, spinnerbaits and crankbaits are the go to presentations.  The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.    
      The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being caught.
      On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers looking to keep a sturgeon have through May 7th.  After that catch and release kicks in again.  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season, 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.
      A 3-5 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the most common setup.  
      Good numbers of fish, all size ranges, being caught.  Sturgeon have been active.

      On the south end...  Lake of the Woods is ice free!  Walleye anglers are looking ahead to the MN Fishing Opener on May 15th.  Based on the big fish in the Rainy River this spring, there is a lot of excitement!
      The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.  Backwater areas and back bays are where pike spawning activity is taking place.  The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being caught.
      On the Rainy River...   The spring walleye season closed with good success.  Despite varying clarity and some spring rains pushing debris into the water, hearty walleye anglers still pulled some very good fish last week.  Now looking toward the walleye opener.  
      Sturgeon fishing this past week was excellent.  Sturgeon of all sizes being caught which bodes well for the health of the fishery which is very strong.  Sturgeon catch and release season through 4/23/21.  Keep season 4/24/21 - 5/7/21, (45-50", or over 75")  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season, 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.

      Hey all, just moved back to MN where I grew up after living in the PNW for a long while. I became addicted to fishing rivers and streams out there and have started to check out the offerings in the NW section of the state as of yesterday’s opener. Wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me some pointers or just tell me if I’m wasting my time since that’s what I’m wondering right now since I didn’t find any signs of fish. I’m using a spinning rod with Mepp’s and Panther Martin style spinners and went through a bunch of color combos. I started yesterday morning at the Clearwater River in western Beltrami County essentially on the border with Clearwater County where the state has some land and a pretty lengthy easement. Probably a well known area. Beautiful area to walk through. Found multiple holes, but yeah no fish at all. I waded for a bit and decided to leave. I went south since I live closer to Moorhead and stopped at Felton Creek. I’ve read a DNR study about this creek having a decreasing population of fish, but it’s still considered a trout stream although not “designated”. I understand the channelization of creeks in this region ruined fish habitat over the last 100 years, but still find some DNR material as of the last 5 years that reference Felton Creek as a spot for trout. Walked the stream for a bit before I left and headed to Lawndale Creek south of Barnesville. I waded through the AMA on the Atherton WMA expecting to find some brook trout since the DNR has stocked it as of at least 2017. Nothing through the entire stretch besides frogs and minnows. Are there actually fish in these places? The Clearwater and Lawndale are designated trout streams. The Clearwater is stocked annually and Lawndale is supposed to have wild brook trout. Anyone have any experience in these spots? Should’ve just drove down MN200 & 71 to the obvious spots in Becker/Hubbard?

      I remember counting just shy of 50 boats in Black Bay around Memorial Day last weekend. It's more than I've ever seen even at Fishing Opener when the spawn is timed perfectly.   What I love about Black Bay is that once the walleye and crappie runs finish up in the spring, the fishing pressure calms way down.
    • DonkeyHodey
      Brag Alert***:  Got a PB white sucker.  With tail pinched it was just at 26 inches.   1.)  This Fish is almost certainly a post spawn female (she was pretty flattened out in the egg section).  probably 20-30 years old (maybe more). 2.)  A big fish drops ~10,000 eggs per spawn (give or take 5000).  With that said, this lovely lady has probably (through her babies) directly provided >200,000 fish meals for the predatory fish (and birds) in the river. 3.)  Many of her offspring will have grown up to spawn and continue the process;  If a mere 5 of her babies grew to spawn for 20 years then Statistically >1 million baby suckers will have come from her to feed the game fish in the Mississippi river!  However, playing the statistics/numbers game:  if ~0.1% of her babies grow to spawn and their babies (with a similar 0.1% chance) grow to spawn, you are looking at 100 million baby suckers descended from this one fish!   Next time you catch a nice plump Smallie or Wally in the river, realize that they grow and thrive because of "grocery getters" like this.    Preachy Alert***--Too many "fisherman" think these are trash fish and fail to recognize their critical role in a healthy fishery...  NEVER throw these on the shore! (notwithstanding the fact that it's also illegal...)
