working around the islands have always been good to me, otherwise the hole out in front of the resort has always been good, girlfriend has a cabin at Sunset resort, so we fish it often other wise, i have picked some walleyes on accident fishing dummers bay, usually i fish bass though, they are a lot of fun. jigs, and lindy rigs with gold spinners have worked for me, worst come to worst try the big pond.

I was out on Sat. Temp was 51 in the bay to the west. All that we caught were small sunnies and 1 crappie.

The opener should be good even though the temps are not going to be that high. I have a couple of spots where i think the crappies might be hiding. also i have to watch out for the dogfish

My dad and I used to use the bow-spear for dogfish in the shallows on a lake nearby. It was a lot of fun. I think we are going to start on FI trolling crankbaits because I was unable to get up and scout. We will sure to be getting some northerns at least that way!

We were fishing the bay to the left of the access. That is where the water temp was 51. Don't think it will change much this week.

JVinny, were you fishing way back in the bay, or outside the bay. Also where was the temp 51 degrees? thanks

We were very successful this weekend at our attempt to only catch hamerhandles and rock bass. Had a little trouble finding the walleyes.

didnt spend much time fishing walleyes because of a bad wind but we got into some crappies and northerns. Also caught many bonus largemouth. My walleye hole didnt produce the numbers it should have. I will be up next weekend and with the higher tems the fish should start to turn on more.

Was out on FI Saturday but couldnt go out sunday cause of the wind. We tried walleyes on Johnsons point, but didnt have any luck. We fished crappies for a while and caught 5, all were 12" and bigger. Had a lot of other action though. The bass kept us busy. I think next weekend the crappies will hit prime time.

Farm holds very few nice crappies like it use to. post spots on the net will only hurt that lake even more.

he could be bsing us all on the lake. I have fished the lake many times and the only place that i have ever caught crappies is next to the church camp petersons bay is amazing for bass though. With all the reeds and deep drops the bass love that spot.Just tie on either a white spinnerbait or white plastic worm and pitch it into the weeds and you will get fish. Plus added northern

Farm holds nice Crappies, but the key word is they are SCATTERED.

I fished the Cabela's Crappie tourney a few years ago out there. I found Crappies in about 6 different spots with the biggest ones being about 13.5 inches.

We did well enough to take 2nd place in the pro division of that tourney, but I have not been back to that lake since.

Farm holds a good population of huge Rockbass as we found out, and they are more then easy to catch this time of year. Not the best table fair though.

Good fishing,

      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!
