Whewwwwww HOT!!!!!!!

I want to give out a special thanks to Reef Runner and the boys for meeting me friday night! Let me know if your coming back up during the month of august.

It was my sons B-day party this weekend which intailed bringing 2 more 10 year olds with to enjoy the weekend. We had to redicide Sat. schedule due to the heat factor. We ended up going over to the Savanah State Park. They have a swiming beach on Loon Lake. They also have hiking trails but not for this guy on a day like that! I give Loon Lake the highest recomendations to anyone kids or not to go and relax! Very peacefull with no boats running back and forth, clean clear water, playground for the youngsters, and of course very nice people.

Saturday evening I loaded up the three boys and headed for the lake for some evening slip-bobber fishing. We were held up for 10 minutes due to towing in a couple on a stranded jet-ski that were trying to swim it back. We fished the battle Island spot I did well at last week. When we arrived I was informed by the first young adult that "I'm a caster! Bobber fishing bores me!". My son was kind/smart anuff to stop him before he got out of hand. He then politely sat and waited his turn to get his line set up. I did let him cast his plug a few times while he was waiting and it did produce one of our walleys. By night fall we had caught and released 8 wall dogs and one perch and much to my surprise never had a boater around us. There were a ton of people fishing in the hillcrest area but received no reports due to the fact I had to leave early on Sunday to make it to the game fair. I had tipped a few people on this spot this weekend but know one showed up. The wall dogs ranged from 12" to 17" and would of made a great meal. We were using slip-bobbers w/ pink and chartruse lead heads. The best was a chartruse and orange "Fliry Girty". Some of the ice fisherman will know this lure. The make them in bigger sizes than most people see. I stuck with a Techno-fuzzy and hung it over the boat and never touched it till I seen it getting tapped. Leeches big leeches which I still can't find localy in the Mcgregor area. I am still picking up before I get there.
I will be up again this weekend hopfully kidless so drop me a note if anyone wants to get together!

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few. 
    • Parmer
      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      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
