Slip bobber and a leech, if the water is warm enough.  If not, a minnow of some kind.  The first weekend they allow night fishing too so I try to get out there with a lighted glow bobber.

 

My parents do a lot of fishing out there all season.  They lindy rig, pull spinners, and use lead core after the 4th of July.

Nice! Sounds like a ton of fun! Love lighted bobber fishing.  We use shallow running crank baits, cast and trolled when water temps get to 55° or so. Temps below that a jig and a minnow, cast or trolled, seems to be best.  Warmer water and weeds are what we target.

Unfortunately there is a season-long night ban unless you target muskies so the lighted glow bobber thing is only a reality for 1.5 nights on opening weekend.  Its been like that for a few years now to cut down on the harvest.  My boat isn't really equipped to troll with crankbaits but yes that can be effective too.

We do! At least 2 weekends a summer we do nothing but musky fishing. Was out night trolling twice. No fish caught overnight though.  2 in 1 day in mid june last year. My wife caught em both!

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.

      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      You're correct trumy.  I just posted this on that page.  Thank you.

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.

      I brought a notarized letter from their mother and they required it back when I did it. The other documents prove who he is but not whether the father is spiriting him away.
