Saintmark,

I'd like to give you some info., but I've been swamped with work and some personal stuff so I haven't been out at all. I was hoping to give the Red a try on Sun., but the Mrs. informed me that I'll be joining her and her mother on Sun. for a Mother's Day outing... yipee! I'd much rather spend time with the mother-in-law than fish (actually the mother-in-law is cool, but fishing is just a little bit cooler).
If you get out send a report out- I'll do the same.

Hate to rain on the cold, muddy, and soggy parade, but I have limited out on walleye every time out this week.

Tee-Hee! smile.gif

Conditions have been generally less than fun due to very sloppy and MUDDY conditions at most locations, yet productive.

The trick is either you move baits V-E-R-Y......S-L-O-W or Fast&Noisy.

Force the bite and cover lots of water is the deal on tough post spawn walleye on rivers. Add murky run off and the fish have less time in turbid water to decide if they wish to eat what they see or hear.

Noise helps them to react instinctively before the meal disappears in the murky water.

They are ready to feed again, they just need a bit of help finding the chow is all.

Very slow bores the snot out of me, so guess what I have been mostly doing?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      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.
