Never fished this lake before and wanted to know if it is worth fishing. the dnr lake finder shows some decent crappies back in 1996. Never see many people fishing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

O'Leary has some decent fish (crappies/bluegills) in it but doesn't have a lot of structure. There's a lot of shallow water. Keep moving, trying different spots until fish are found. Sometimes you just have to set up and wait them out. It also has a history of "freezing out". Good luck.........GC

If you park at the boat landing on the north side (there's not much room at the one right on 65) - look out at the lake towards the WSW. You'll see a point into the lake from north shore. Off that point there is kind of a bar, it's deeper on the south and west end of the bar. West end of the lake (along the hwy) is shallow. We fish it in the summer, never tried it in the winter - you can always use the old trick and look for the holes/fish houses! Stop at the Buck Stop north of Buck Lake on 65 for minnows - tell Dewey you are fishing O'Leary. He will be glad to tell you where they are biting.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
