i was out on it 3 times now and have caught a total of 5 of them for about 6 hours out there. i dont know what happened to them. i fished in the main 15 ft hole. last year i would catch them just as fast as i could rebait. i did however catch a ton of perch. all little but it kept me entertained for a while. anyone else been out there or have any ideas what the deal is?

maybe winterkill?

i guess thats possible but i would almost doubt it because its not THAT shallow of a lake and last winter wasnt that bad....but i dont know much about it. its deffinatly a possibility.

it wasn't winterkill at all, it was later in the spring, june I think. I contacted the DNR and they said it was a combination of the spawn and a gill parasite. in my opinion, its probally what this lake needed, as there were far to many small crappies in there. maybe now we can grow some slabs.

Heres what i know about fleming lake this winter, i hit the ice during halftime of the vikes poor showing against the bears on sunday and got off the ice just as the game was gettin done. During this time i had drilled 4 holes, all of which showed fish in them, i had landed about 3 limits of crappies, some odd sizes of perch, and one nice bluegill. Maybe i hit it on a good day but i think that if you move around and find the fish most others can do well also.

      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.

      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
