Great time and I would highly recomend the Cats Classic event to anyone intersted in big cats and fishing with great folks.

The on the water staff checking team weights were top notch and on the ball even in the steady rain of saterday, great job guys. Stu and crew did a good job and you can count on us being ready for 2003.......and more piggys.

Great to finally meet ya Canuck!

Way to go Ed. To do that well in an area that you don't fish that often really speaks for your "sixth sense" of sniffing out those catfish! Bruce

It was on the news last night. Two garbage bags full of marijuana were found by a guy out looking for frogs by the Horseshoe Bend - figured it might be you.

Ya, it was me. Strange deal?

Some times you stumble on the dardest things when your stomping for frogs.

The cops didn't get too excited about it really, hard to say if they got what they needed to find who put it there?

The frogs in that area seem to be preaty darn easy to catch, so maybe they are all stoned?

Well, there is nothing like a happy frog! That happened to a friend of ours also. He had gone out of town and someone was doing chores for him and found a bag by a tree next to his driveway. Scared the heck out of the kid so he hid it in the barn until the landowner got home.

      Any smallmouth reports?

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.
