The Rampage is just AWESOME by all accounts! I have been chained down here stateside and unable to road trip North but not for long! Just can't take it anymore!!

Friends from points south caught and released 12 over 12 and a 14 and more 8-10's then I care to think about right now!

OK-so if you were not restless before chances you are NOW! I run out of fingernails last Monday!

For a good view of the region check this link, very good satellite shots of the area!

If anyone dare's a peek?

Don't say I didn't warn ya! It will get ya!

The Rampage continues! But big wind means big boat action is safest!

With wild wind and high rollers the mouth of Traverse bay is home to piggy's of the high sea's of Lake Winnipeg, not for the faint of heart!

Big fish are in but the wind blew me off big time, so off to the Red at Selkirk I went.

Fishing was fair, fewer piggy's but many smaller fish. Sauger were every place and a bit pesky!

No records for me this trip but it was a fun and exciting effort, 13 was my top on cranks in less then 8 ft. at night. Also landed a 18 lb. drum, she darn near gave me a heart attack! Thought it was a walleye up to the last! MAN?

Hope to get up there again but got some very interesting tips on the PIGGY'S of first ice!

More 16's are caught through the ice then any other time, and first ice near X-mass is best if you know were to go! I got the poop from some very nice locals who clued me in, I'll be back!

Be well........(BE)............><,,>

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
