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 just returned home from a sweltering 4 day trip on Vermilion. In all of the years that I have fished Lake Vermilion, I don't ever remember it being so hot for so long. We had no top on our boat and

We returned home today from a short 3 day fishing trip on Vermilion. The weather was chilly most of the time and windy during our entire trip. All of the fishing took place on the east end of the lake

Nice going Casey, congratulations! I fished it with Travis Sorokie and finished "somewhere" in the middle of the pack of nearly 100 boats, weighing in five fish for 4.55 pounds. We had a couple better fish die on us and couldn't weigh those. Acually, we quit fishing a couple hours early because most of our fish looked like they wouldn't make it, being caught deep and being bounced around out there all day. Fun event though and once again, CONGRATS!

Congrats Casey and Dave! It absolutely couldn't have happened to two nicer guys or better fishermen. Just think Casey, assuming you and Dave split the winnings, 13 more wins like this one and you'll have that new boat ALMOST paid for! laugh

Good Fishing,

We fished it for the first time, (first time fishing the lake on Friday) we weighed 6 fish for 6.11 lbs all the fish were 15"-16", we caught 12 keepers on Friday prefishing and then caught 15 fish on sat, we weighed 4 fish at 9am because ther was no way they were going to make another 6 hrs in the live well and went back out looking for a kicker and released a 22" and 20" and caught more 15"ers. It took about 7lbs to cash a check, we ended up in about 18-20th place. It was a record for most fish caught in the tourney.

Can't say enough good things about the tournament! I'm not a tournament guy but I will be back!

The fish were 26'-40' right on the transition from the rocks to the mud off of structure that topped out at 15-20 feet, we had three spots all to ourselves for fri and sat, red beeds and a red hook with a rainbow or shiner out fished everything else.

Thanks to mark b and the other guys on here for such awesome info last week, it got me started and we picked up a pattern and we had a blast!

Hey John, by chance, did you fish out of a red Lund? If so, I'll explain why I ask.

Do you guys run mono as a main line on your lindy rods or a braid with flouro leader? I noticed the line section my weight was sliding on was pretty beat up. Rocks down there don't help either.

tjo,

I was out this morning with clients and we boated 23 walleyes and kept 12 nice fish!

Largest was 22inches.

I think most of the experts (not me) will say they use a braid and flouro leader.

Get a snag, pull hard and break the flouro, just retie the leader and you are back in business.

You can go either way. I think a quality rod with a good tip is more important. I like berkley sensation on my jigging and lindy rods. I always use fluorocarbon no matter what on lindys. It's all personal preference.

I honestly feel sorry for the fishermen that have to work all week so they can come to the lake on the week-end and then get the kind of weather we had this past week-end. Actually, the fishing was quite good if you wanted to fight the wind most of the day Saturday and fish in the rain most of the day Sunday. Rain is most welcome, but during the week would be better.

And then there was today grin You absolutely couldn't ask for a more beautiful day to be on the lake. Sunshine and light variable winds made fishing conditions perfect! The week-end cold front appeared to have absolutely no effect on the appetite of the walleyes. My wife and I started out at the deep water mud and today we pulled up with another boat as the first boats out there. Eventually, the numbers swelled to over 30 boats. Everyone is still catching walleyes and the depths still range between 30' and 40', with perhaps the nod going to the 30'-35' depth. The only significant change that I could detect in the bite was that the walleyes seemed a bit more tentative in the "hit" and we had several pick it up and drop it. With that said, any lindy style rig, bouncer/leader, etc would catch all the walleyes you could possibly need.

About 11 o'clock I suggested to my wife that we try a rock reef or two away from the crowd. The fishing was spectacular! I have a mark in 19' on a reef that tops out at 14' surrounded by 30'-40' of water. I knew I was in the right spot because it took my wife <5 minutes to get the first snag. The walleyes were scattered from 25'-29' for about 200 yards along the deep edge of the reef. I marked quite a lot of fish and it was refreshing being able to see them compared to the mud where they are, most of the time, harder to see(for me anyway). We actually caught more walleyes there than on the mud and, today, the average was bigger. Most of the mud walleyes today were 15"-15.5" while the walleyes we caught adjacent to the rocks were beautiful 16"-17.5" The first walleye my wife caught there was smallish but that was the only one. In addition I got a 18" smallmouth in 25' of water that had me going for a bit. When it didn't give me the tell-tale thump when it ran I was certain I didn't have my first big walleye of the season cry

The reason for todays post is that several people that I talk to are having issues with mud questions: are they only on deep mud?, how do you tell if it's mud?, how long will they be on the mud? Well, a blanket answer today would be: if you feel more comfortable fishing more "typical" walleye structure away from the big crowds of boats, then, by all means, give it a try because they were certainly there for us today.

Personally, I'll keep fishing both places until they all go to the rocks.

Good Fishing,

MarkB smile

Thanks for the updates Mark. How can you tell if you are on top of the mud versus rocks?

Thanks

Visually, you can see the difference on your sonar. Mud shows up somewhat granular and dull colored:

full-32496-20759-002.jpg

Rock will show up as a solid dark band and, of course, large boulders,etc. will protrude up from the bottom.

Now, this is precisely the reason I like using bouncers. With a bouncer, a fast tip, and braid, I can "feel" the bottom blindfolded and know what it is.

Hope this helps.

Good Fishing,

bingo!

also, the way we could tell is when you use an old fashion bottom bouncer, you can tink it down the rocks and the when you hit the mud you can feel the soft bottom, do that on a few drifts and pay attention to how deep the transition is and then use your gps and trolling motor to keep you there and follow the structure.. that mixed with my new Humminbird 798 on the same screen that Mark showed is an easy way to find the transition.

Our biggest fish were actually on the rocks and they must have been huge because we were snagging all the time in that spot compared to our other spots.

The fish were huge or the rocks were huge? I presume it was the rocks that were huge, but that's not what you wrote. Grammar police in action.

Lol I didn't know I had to use proper grammar on here... I was on the Tower end where that is allowed, i guess you get called out on the cook side.

I meant the rocks but there was no doubt they were holding bigger fish.

Mark,

The graphs are very helpful identifying rocks versus mud. Much appreciated! Does anyone have the full auto Glass standings? Can't find on the web.

Also, does anyone else get logged out of the forums regularly after checking "remember me"? not a big deal, but I must contiuously enter my ID and password.

Thanks

They compiled the results yesterday and they are being uploaded today on their website. 27 teams out of 91 didn't weigh a fish, I thought it was less than that but that is still pretty good, I think they said there were 350 or so walleyes weighed, 3 over 26" and that doesn't count the ones that people culled and I heard a few guys say that they just took theirs home for the frying pan instead of weighing them. (going off of memory so may be a bit sketchy)

That is very impressive!

      On the south end...  Strong summer walleye patterns continue, which is a good thing for catching LOW walleyes. The two primary techniques are drifting or trolling spinners with live bait and trolling crankbaits.
      Schools of walleyes obviously move around based on forage, wind, current and a variety of other factors.  This past week, a couple of patterns emerged.  First and very consistent, targeting walleyes in 30-34' of water over deep mud in Big Traverse Bay.  Fish of all sizes being caught.  
      The second pattern was off of Pine Island.  With a south wind, a nice bite set up in 16 - 22 feet.  Other patterns such as walleyes relating to structure are also in play.  
      Hammered gold, pink, yellow, orange and red / white are colors doing well.  It is a good idea to use something different from your fishing partner until the walleyes tell you what they want that day.
      On the Rainy River...   A mixed bag on the Rainy River this week.  Most walleye anglers focus on the lake this time of year but nice pockets of "local" walleyes are in the river year round.  Holes, current breaks, rock piles and weed edges can all hold fish.  Pull spinners or troll cranks to find scattered fish.
      Pike adjacent to weeds and current breaks.  Smallmouth bass in great numbers and they don't get much attention.  
      The sturgeon "keep" season continues through Sep. 30.  Catch and release Oct 1 - April 23, 2022.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing up at the Angle this week.  Much like the south end, one area to consider is the deep mud of Little Traverse Bay.  Walleyes are set up over mud in 28 - 33 feet.  Spinners and crankbaits are effective in covering water and catching these fish.  
      There is so much fun structure to fish where pods of walleyes are hanging out.  Underwater points, sunken islands, and neck down areas are just a few also holding walleyes.    
      Pike are usually willing to play and continue to be active in weedy bays.  Spinnerbaits, spoons, crankbaits and bucktails are good choices.  
      Smallmouth bass are relating to deeper rocks.  Some nice muskies caught and released again this week.
      Canada announced driving over the border will be possible August 9th for fully vaccinated Americans who have a negative PCR COVID test less than 72 hours old. Other ways to the Angle...
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service from the south end of the lake.

      On the south end...  We are in the heart of a great summer walleye pattern on LOW. This means good fishing is taking place with two primary methods, pulling spinners with live bait and trolling crankbaits.
      Most anglers are targeting walleyes in 30-34' of water over deep mud. Lots of big fish being caught.  The scattered reefs are holding fish as well.  Spinners and crawlers have been very effective.  Hammered gold, pink, orange and red / white spinners doing well.
      Trolling crankbaits and covering water over deep mud has also been effective.  Anglers getting cranks deep in a number of ways.  Leadcore line, a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with a 6' leader, snap weights or downriggers are all viable options.
      On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River is a great option on windy days, small boats, kayaks or for a change of pace.  Fishing the river producing walleyes, saugers, smallmouth, pike and sturgeon.  
      If targeting walleyes, holes, current breaks, rock piles and weed edges can all hold fish.  Pull spinners or troll cranks to find fish.
      The sturgeon "keep" season continues through Sep. 30.  Catch and release Oct 1 - April 23, 2022.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great summer walleye fishing this week.  Fish in various areas including  the mud, structure such as sunken islands and underwater points and rocky areas.
      Most anglers drifting spinners with crawlers or minnows and trolling crankbaits.  
      Pike continue to be active in weedy bays using crankbaits and bucktails.

      Curious how the depth is in river from Wolf lake to Andrusia and Cass. Is it navigateable.  Was  up there last September and went through there. Kind of scenic and nice slow ride on the mighty Mississippi.  Did get a few fish as well.  Hopefully going there again this year.  Staying at my brother's cabin with his son and my dad near Becida. With dad in his early 80s hoping to keep this 3 year tradition going for a while.

      Heard from an island neighbor (Church Island) next to ours that a bear killed a small dog yesterday around 8:00 pm on an island in Frazer Bay. Also, my other island neighbor to the east (Juniper Island) reported three bears yesterday and one chased after their labrador retriever.  
       
      Watch your pets friends, some of these bears are very aggressive!

      On the south end...  A lot of summer walleyes are being caught and fishing has been good.  
      Not all walleyes are targeting the same forage consequently walleyes are being caught shallow to deep.   Many of the shallow fish are eating crayfish or schools of baitfish.  Deep fish feeding on baitfish, mayfly larvae, blood worms, tullibees and the list goes on!
      Most anglers are targeting walleyes in 30-34' of water over deep mud.  The scattered reefs can always hold fish as well.  Spinners and crawlers have been very effective.  Hammered gold, orange and red / white spinners doing well.
      Trolling crankbaits has also been effective.  This technique puts your lure in front of a lot of fish and will get those "reaction" bites even when fish aren't actively feeding.  Pink UV Firetiger, chrome/blue and shiny golds are good colors to start with. 
      On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River producing a variety of fish.  Walleyes, saugers, smallmouth, pike and sturgeon are in the mix.    
      If targeting walleyes, holes, current breaks, rock piles and weed edges can all hold fish.  Pull spinners or troll cranks to find fish.
      The river is a great change of pace, is beautiful and doesn't receive a lot of traffic during the summer months.
      The sturgeon "keep" season opened July 1st and is open through Sep. 30.  Catch and release Oct 1 - April 23, 2022.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes being caught.  Some fish over the mud, others hanging around structure and a few in shallow rocks eating crayfish.  
      Anchoring up with jigs and minnows or leeches on the spot on the spot can be effective.  If fish aren't there, move and find them.  Most anglers drifting spinners and crawlers and trolling crankbaits over deep mud areas.  
      Pike are active in weedy bays using crankbaits and bucktails.  
      With the Canada border still closed, there are a few ways to get up to the Angle.  
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service from the south end of the lake.

      Day 3 of using nothing but drop shots, wacky rigs, and jig and craw took me to Wisconsin to see if I could continue my newfound favorite lures. I went to Church Pine Lake, just east of Osceola. Never been here before, so had no clue what to expect. Turns out to be a nice little lake for a small boat such as mine. Lots of potential here, but fishing was tough today. Most fish came on the drop shot on the deep weed edges. 6 bass and 1 little pike. Highlight came at the very end of the day, where I caught a 21 inch bass right in front of the access. Best way to end the day 😁

      On the south end...  Another really good week of summer walleye fishing.  Walleyes are being found in many areas but most are targeting deep mud in 30 - 34' of water.
      A nice mix of eaters, slots and quite a few trophy walleyes over 28 inches caught this week.  Spinners with crawlers / leeches or trolling crankbaits have been the most effective techniques.  
      Good spinner blade colors to start with are hammered gold, red / white, gold / glow, pink, orange or chartreuse.
      Crankbait colors, pink UV firetiger, chrome / blue, firetiger.  It is good to start with different colors / shapes / action of cranks when fishing with other anglers and let the walleyes tell you that day what they want.    
      On the Rainy River...   The river produces a mixed bag of fish during the summer months.  Walleyes, saugers, smallmouth, pike and sturgeon are all available.

      So I'm fairly new to the area my boys love fishing as do I . We have been attempting for the past couple of weeks to find a place we can fish without a boat. In between Brainerd and Little Falls. Also times of day to go. We love fishing I'm a newbie as well so just looking for ideas please and thank you.

      Going up to GM 16th through the 21st bringing my 14fter was looking at Ball club and east west twin for walleyes. Anybody fish these before or am I just better off smallie fishing on Two Island or trout in Kimball. I know JB and Moose will have some feedback so what say you ? going up with the wife and 8 yr old grandson they will be kayaking me fishing. Although grandson will probably want to be fishing with me. Appreciate any feedback from you guys thanks.

      I haven’t been on Whitefish and only out a few times for a few hours each but have done well by down sizing and going slower than I’d think I’d have to.   Dragging and slow drifting smaller plastics with little or no jigging and long pauses with smaller sized jerk baits have worked the best.  4-8lb test on spinning gear.   I’ve caught crappies, gills, perch, walleye, smallies, largies and pike all on the same baits in the same systems at the same depths.  Those depths vary by system but all the fish seem to be using the same water - according to what I’ve seen the past few weeks.

      Hey Mtnman. Thanks…the last two times out my wife took the pictures….still smoke in the area, as you can see in the background. Fire ban is still in place for much of northwestern Ontario. Rainy is about a foot low from normal water levels. Temperature has been in the low 80’s for the most part which about average for early August.

      Counting the days, and looking for cooler weather also. As always, your  pictures are excellent !  How is the fire situation, and what is the lake level ? I'm worried BIDEN is going for another lock down, which isn't going to play out well here. Pray for the best, prepare for the worst. Thanks as always for the pictures !!!

      My wife and I were out on Tuesday from noon to 3pm. Light east south east wind using jig and minnow. We caught over 30 walleyes with quite a few double headers. The biggest was 23” and another 7 in the 18”-21” range. 10 were in the 14”-17” slot range but did not keep any with the rest being 12”-13”. Water temperature was at 73.5 degrees. Air temperature was at 86 degrees.

      Been awhile since any reports so here goes.  A tough summer this has been. Never saw so many weeds yet there is very little wild rice. Fishing has been tough to say the least.  No real pattern, nor walleyes are not in there usual summer haunts it seems. Been so slow we headed up to Leech last week for a Musky trip.   Non caught but four follows,   one on Pelican reef that was in the mid 40" range.  Then back to Whitefish for a few more hours of no activity.  Even the panfish are slow.  Anybody with any better reports lets here them.  Lord send some rain.
