Maybe you should keep your dock raised and keep fishing off of the neighbor's dock!

 

I saw my first mayfly today while over at Wolf Point. Also got my first mosquito bites of the season, saw my first humming bird at the feeder, heard a Hermit Thrush singing followed immediately by a Barred Owl hooting in a tree right above me...what a day.

Are Rainbows still the ticket for bait? Heading up tonight. I have leaches and crawlers too, but nothing beat minnows last weekend.

Fished from Wednesday night to Friday morning.  Caught 11 walleyes in about 11 hours of fishing.  When I found them they bit quite firmly, but were hard to find.  Fortunately most were 14-16" so I got a couple of fresh walleye meals after 3 months without.

 

Got the last dozen rainbows at Fuel and Food and didn't find a rainbow in the bunch (only chubs and mud minnows), so I ended up using pike suckers on a multi-colored jig.  16 FOW.

 

Vermilion was very quiet until Friday morning, and by Friday evening it was getting very busy.  Saw this little fishing boat ready to go into the water Friday morning.

We are back up on the East End and was surprised to see 60 degrees in Daisy/Big Bay! Assuming the walleyes (my father in law's favorite) had come and gone from the shallows we tried chasing Smallies (my favorite) in like 8fow and on shorelines. Bass fishing was slow, the fish we did pick up were on DT-6's and Jerkbaits.

 

I love the comment on fishing different species on Vermilion. It offers so many different options! I don't get up here but a couple time from Spring - Fall and maybe twice in the Winter. I always struggle at sticking to one species. I fish em all, but not very well 😂

Fishing picked up towards the end of the week. We started hooking minnows in the back instead of through the lips and it seemed to make a big difference. The bite on leeches was also really good, you have to fight through the perch but we picked up a few nice eaters with jigs and leeches.

It’s exciting to hear of some reports of Walleyes  on west end of lake - wakemup etc… 

 

Its always been frustrating that east end walleye fish is so much better for numbers/eater size fish…

 

It would be amazing to get a walleye fish fry meal without the long drive to east end of the lake. 

 

Love the reports - keep them coming

Man I seem to be the only one not having any luck- I’ll be honest this lake has done nothing but frustrate me for the last 5 years. (My fault, clearly not the lakes!)

Growing up in Southwest Minnesota the prairie and basin style lakes as well as resivours all made sense to me but Vermilion being the shield lie with all of the structure has done nothing but tease me since meeting my now in-laws, and fishing out of their cabin on the south side of Big Bay, near Everett Bay. Be it winter or now summer the fish just elude me. 
 

I’ve gone west, east towards tower, tried to stay in the big Bay Area anywhere from the Potato area to around strawberry, around Pine, Ely Island, etc. 

 

Even the last few days have been more of the same. Regardless of jiggin, rigging or trolling- and minnows or leeches- shallow (6-8) or deep (20-30), first break or 2nd break, I can’t seem to not only buy a bite, but I can’t locate good numbers so far. 
 

Fingers crossed for an improvement or plans to stay until next Wednesday may get changed out of necessity and care for my mental well being 😁

Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours again tonight, got 5. Two were under 12", 14-1/4, 24-1/2 and one around 22", forgot to measure it. All on leeches, pulling bottom bouncers. 17'-26' of water. No pictures tonight, the background area is too obvious 🙂. Sure is nice to see the smaller fish on this end of the lake! Saw this little guy when I was driving the UTV up the neighbors boathouse road. It wouldn't get off the road, it took me about 5 minutes to get it to go into the woods.

Well, that didn't work! Short little video of a very young fawn walking down the road in front of me. The new light bar sure lights up the night!

Vermilion was doing what Vermilion does this weekend.  Hope everyone enjoyed the Memorial Day holiday!  Mother Nature was paying us back for all the bitter cold winter days sitting on a bucket and peering down an ice hole. lol

It was a refreshing 60 degrees when I jumped into the lake around 7pm!

 
Seconded! I took down 3 pines on Sunday and a brief but refreshing dip followed.
 

Manick’s hadn’t been to Wakemup Narrows, so it was a working weekend around the place- fun to read the fishing reports, keep them coming!

I emailed manicks yesterday morning and voiced my concerns, 3 hours later my dock was in, but not the lift. It looks like they put all the docks in on the Partridge River. We got 6 more walleyes last night, 1- 12" and the others over 22". Back home now.

In my 15+ years of ownership, I have never seen boat traffic like we had in Black Bay over the week/weekend. During the week there were 5-10 boats and each day while this weekend there were 20-30 boats from morning-to-night hunting crappies. There was no hot spot, just boats everywhere. 

 

When I finally went home last night after 1.5 weeks up, I noted that someone backed their trailer into the dock at The Landing. The rubber bumper was hanging off. It must have been a hoot to sit around watching all of the boats going in and out.

On Big Bay we experienced levels of boat traffic like you did - it was more than most any 4th of July weekend.  On Saturday night at 8 pm, we were in the middle of Big Bay and counted 77 boats that we could see from that spot.  After seeing all that boat traffic we figured there would be lots of traffic on the way home, but we left at 4:30 pm and were very pleasantly surprised that there was no traffic to speak of.  Either everyone left early, or they were staying until today.

Lakes across the state are going to have much more noticeable traffic this summer. No twins games, kids sports, restaurants, festivals, parades, meat raffles, garage sales, concerts, movies, etc, etc, etc, etc to go to.

Bite was good over the weekend. Found fish on deeper sand/gravel. Boated 86 walleyes from Friday morning-Monday morning. Fishing mornings and evenings. Lindy rigging chubs and leeches produced. Did also find some fish throwing jigs in 4’ of water in mornings. Hoping the bite is good this weekend 👍🏻

Need some advice. I'm sure if I scrolled through all the posts I'd definitely find what I'm looking for but that's a lot of reading! I'm a southern MN fisherman. I fish mostly the rivers but my son has earned a trip to Vermillion. Saw it on a fishing show and has begged me. He earned it so we are heading up. He wants to catch bass and small mouth in particular. I'll be staying near eveleth. Any one mind pointing me in the right direction? I'll be boat fishing by the way too. 

Thanks in advance! The little guy has earned the right to cast all those obnoxious lures he got from lucky tackle box haha

I only make it vermilion once a year but it is always the first or second week of June.  If he’s looking for bass bust the rocky shorelines with inline spinners, wacky worms and topwaters baits and he should find plenty of action.  Generally catch 90-95% smallmouth doing this in my experience.  Good luck and enjoy.  Vermilion is one of a kind

Smallmouth should be on beds spawning. Good time to fish smallmouth. Fishing off shallow water off rocky islands on East side of Vermilion should be in play. Troll and throw spinners to shore.  Look for line where big rocks end and small rocks/gravel starts.

I was up last weekend(Memorial Day weekend) at the cabin on Birch Point. Where my electronics reading right that water was 64-66 degrees? Also tried up in the shallows in the pencil reads and sandy rocky bottoms of big bay, the side of the point our cabin is on, hoping to find crappies on beds, but nothing. Seems like the perfect area and water temp for all other lakes I’ve fished and there was nothin. Not a sight of beds or fish. Maybe there just isn’t good crappie numbers there? Anyone will to share some shallows for sight fishing on beds? And info on that water temp or what it currently is. and if that was right, is that still not warm enough for vermillion? Gonna be up the weekend of 6/5 to try again, and hoping to not miss it this week. Thank you

My smaller bay was 71 degrees over Memorial Day weekend, so I expect with the warm temps forecasted this week that most of the lake will be in the 70 degree range by this weekend.

Spent all last week on the lake.  We fished on the east end all week.  We found the water temps on the east side, Armstrong Bay, was in the low 70's and on the west side, Daisy bay, was in the low 60's.  Kind of a wide range.  We found walleye shallow, even caught quite a few of the dock, 5'-9'  We found pike in the weeds, perch outside the weeds in the bays.  Pike would hit a swimbait or fluke worked through the weeds.  We caught the perch on a small 1/8 oz spinnerbait.  The smallmouth were making beds in the warmer water and staging in the cooler water.  The fish on beds are easy to catch, the staging fish would hit a medium size red squarebill crankbait.  It did help if there were rock present, volleyball size or bigger.  Pike and smallmouth fishing should only get better in the weeks to come.  We did see a dozen or more musky cruising the shallows.

I'm in a group of 5 that heads to Vermilion once a year.  We'll be on the West end starting 6/13.  We're open to traveling but will be looking for walleye primarily.  I'll keep an eye on the message board, but any input for success would be appreciated.  In the past, we've had luck with crawlers and leeches, but not much with minnows.  We've had the most luck with lindy rigs and slip bobbers.  We'd like to get ahold of some crappies too if anyone has any pointers.  We're used to Mississippi River fishing so we're kind of at a disadvantage when it comes to Vermilion.  Thank you in advance!

      On the south end...  A very successful week for Lake of the Woods anglers.  Great walleye fishing continues with best success in 17-28 feet of water, with walleyes also being caught shallower.  A number of areas along the south shore from Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Long Point and Rocky Point are producing.  Knight / Bridges Island area also still holds good numbers and size of fish.  Anchored up and vertical jigging, drifting crawler harnesses and pulling crankbaits all working.  Gold / pink  / orange / glow all working well.  A nice mix of eaters, slot fish to be released between 19.5" and 28" and a good number of trophies over 28".  As last week, big pike and jumbo in the mix.  
      On the Rainy River...   Most walleyes are being targeted and caught in the lake.  There is always a population of resident walleyes that live in the river.  Best depth is 12-24'.  Jigs and minnows working the best however trolling a crankbait and covering water is also effective.  Smallmouth bass near rocky structure.   Good pike hanging in and adjacent to bays.  The sturgeon season is closed until July 1st when the season re-opens.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake and stay in MN waters.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.  
      Fishing continues to be excellent.  Walleyes being caught on 5-7' flats with snelled spinners and crankbaits as well as jigging rocky points in 10 - 20 feet of water.  Walleyes being caught in many different areas on the Minnesota side.  Pike in bays and creek mouths.  Water temps 55-57 degrees.

      Don’t ya love when the weather forecasters are wrong?  S’pose to rain all weekend, but we were blessed with overcast/partly sunny weather.
       
      Over the weekend, we fished around on 3 little lakes (all <200 acres) in Bemidji area (Clearwater county).  One lake was already up to 66 degrees in the middle! 
      Most vegetation is still low except a few lily pads were just hitting the surface at the shallows; bulrushes are still dried/brown.  With the warmer weather this week, I’ll bet the lakes will start filling out with vegetation in a matter of days and probably be growing fast.
       
      Sunny/crappie bite was nice on Sat; dead on Sunday—had to work to find them though.  (Morning bites were poor--Afternoons much better.  Evening is always good…)
      (males were staging; females weren’t around yet)  Their location varied between hugging emergent bulrushes to being suspended at ~8 feet in ~15 feet of water.  (the suspended ones weren’t biting, though)  We were using slip bobbers with 1/32 flu flus and nightcrawlers.
      Found some nice perch hugging the bottom in 7-10 FOW jigging with 1/16 pink/white beetle-bou jigs.
       
      Once sonny boy starting catching northerns casting a shad rap, then princess wanted to catch a nort too; so our fishing trip shifted from casting bobbers to trolling with spoons and the norts were very cooperative—getting 1-2 strikes every time down a simple shoreline of ~100 yds.  Norties were fat and healthy!
      Princess caught her PB northern!
       
      Hoping to be back fishing around in Stearns and Morrison county (central MN) this weekend and got another getaway planned for next week.  Happy Fishing!

      I've been going up to the areas mentioned for 20 plus years now and ended up buying a cabin in the Bovey area. Looking to hear and share some fishing reports about the surrounding lakes. Never keep much besides some pesty northerns and panfish (which are plentiful) for the occasional lunch. So, I highly respect the area, but if you know the area at all, you will never be able to fish all its lakes in a lifetime... so some well informed fishing reports is always welcome. Again, I emphasize "smaller lakes," because the bigger ones (Jessie, Round, Wabana, etc) all have fishing reports available. Post if you're interested and lets get a good conversation going.

      I tried to search and found a few old posts regarding Superior National Forest (quoted at the end of my post). I usually go grouse hunting in the Superior National Forest every fall, but I've never been up there fishing. I'm planning to head up there in ~1 month with a couple of my friends and their families and we will be bringing canoes. We're hoping to catch some walleye ideally. When I've been up in the fall hunting we usually try to camp by one the many lakes (Wilson, Whitefish, Silver Island, Bone...). The posts at the end are over a decade old already. I'm sure that some of it hasn't changed, but I was wondering if anyone has any good tips for fishing in the SNF? I perused DNR LakeFinder for the lakes in the area we usually go to that have walleyes: Timber, Finger, Sister, Dam Five, Elbow, Frear, Ninemile, T Lake, Windy, Harriet, Wilson, Toohey, Four Mile, Whitefish, Silver Island. Anyone have any general or specific tips for this area? We'd be in canoes, so don't need a lake that has a launch, and maybe that adds benefit getting to a lake that potentially has less pressure.
       
      ------------------------------------------------------------
       
      "There are a number of areas you could get to easily with just about any vehicle. Lake Eighteen, Wilson, Silver Island, August... There are a couple that come to mind down some tougher roads, Seven Beavers and Harris. If you wanted to have a wilderness type experience without the permits and regs you could boat across Ojibway and take the roller portage into Triangle if you have a smaller boat. Birch Lake has a lot of the rustic campsites."
       
      "Dumbbell is another option (I forgot to mention) and if you're interested in going after muskies would be a good option. Pretty cool campsite on a point."
       
      "Wilson has some really nice walleyes, but because it's so clear, the best bite is after dark. Windy has a lot of eaters, plus plenty of northerns and the occasional whitefish. There are several sites scattered around the perimeter. An updated MacKenzie map should show the locations of most campsites on any lake you're looking to fish."
       
      "Elbow, Timber, Frear - I would hit them for sure, close together and good walleye lakes. For bait I would use jig and minnows if your bringing minnows, and leeches on a snell, crawlers on the harness. I know lindy rigs and leeches work also, so bring them. Bone Lake - Great splake lake. Lots of good size fish. I love to fish splake, and I would bring in just these spoons. Kamloopers, in rainbow trout and perch colors, and Kastmasters in silver blue, and perch. These are what I only use for splake. They are the best period. Bring a few as there are good sized fish in there. Put them on a swivel and troll the shorelines and points for them, deadly approach. As for Cross River and Coffee Lake your typical walleye rigs will work as I mentioned above. I would bring some pike lures and try for some pike as well. Cross River has good size pike in there. I would also check with some bait shops or local people who have fished these lakes this year, just in case of a freeze out. We had alot of ice up this way. Lotta beaver ponds I trap froze to the bottom, and Cross Lake is shallow, and so is Coffee, but with the creeks and rivers running into them you should be OK. But I would check with the Beaver House or Bucks Hardware. Hate to hike in and the lake froze out."

      Hi all. I am currently at Rush Lake near Perham at Four Seaons Resort. We’ve been here three days and have caught basically nothing. Can anyone give me some advice on walleyes here? Where to go and good baits for this lake? I’ll take any advice on any type of fish you might experience with on this lake. Never been here before.....
    • LakeofthewoodsMN

      On the south end...  Anglers had an excellent week of good fishing and fish frys.  A strong walleye bite continues with best success in 17-28 feet of water.  It is good to remember, not all walleyes do the same thing.  Some schools are deep, some shallow.  Some may be feeding on minnows, others critters in the mud.  Good reports in various areas along the south shore of the lake as well as Knight / Bridges Island area.  Anchored up and vertical jigging a jig and minnow or frozen emerald shiner has been very successful.  Gold / pink  / orange or a combo hard to beat.  Drifting with spinners and trolling crankbaits also catching fish.  A nice mix of eaters, slots and trophies.  Some big pike and jumbo perch in the mix.  
      On the Rainy River...   Anglers caught some good walleyes in the river this week.  Best depth 12-24'.  Jigs and minnows working the best.  The edge of the river channel in Four Mile Bay also giving up some walleyes.  Smallmouth bass in good numbers.  Typical spots, rocky areas, current breaks, bridge and rip rap areas.  Somie big pike still hanging out in bays.  The sturgeon season is closed until July 1st when the season re-opens.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake and stay in MN waters.  Some resorts are offering transport service across the lake in MN waters to the Angle prior to the border opening.  Some guests are setting up with transport to follow charters in their own boats.  Various south shore resorts are offering parking for guests of NW Angle resorts.
      Fishing is great.  Anglers fishing the Angle are catching good numbers of walleyes.  Jigging rocky points in 10 - 22 feet of water producing nice walleyes.  Some good fish also being caught on crankbaits in 8-12' of water.  Big pike in bays and creek mouths.  Smallmouth bass in bays and shallow rocks.

      Welcome to MN! While i'm not familiar with the Eagan area I would suggest using the MN DNR recreation compass. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/maps/compass/index.html  some searching on the link above will not only provide you fish creel surveys, but lake maps and water clarity reports. I've spent countless hours cyber scouting lakes. Good luck!
    • Barbelboy
      yeah, with larger suckers i just pre-cut the bait and keep in a little cooler so it stays fresh. I usually use a treble hook and chicken liver, but when i use cut bait a circle hook is my go to.

      looking to try cut bait for catfishing. Usual use nightcrawlers or stink bait, but am looking to filter the Rockbass and small cats.  I'm gunna buy a couple decoy suckers and use. But am wondering how to humanely kill and cut up? Or do I just cut umm alive while flopping like a serial killer?

      Fished the past weekend Norwegian bay.  Friday was great with minnows on a Lindy with three nice 18 inch walleyes in 45 minutes around 9pm.  Tried same spot Saturday with no marks on sonar.  Water temperature 63 degrees and fished in 13-16 feet.  Friday night sonar was full of marks.  Speed drifting ( 0.5 mph) and a red bead were the ticket Friday but not a bite Saturday.  Only difference was a nice breeze blowing in Friday.
