it has been so crazy this year i finally
got in a cat' day yesterday. I was surprised and pleased at the landing at MB Johnson being so easy in and out, no mud problems, it was geat. the goldeye weren't very cooperative we only could catch one so i dug out my waterdogs and a couple reserve suckers. The cats were pecking in the morning and being fussy for us but we had a good midday. We landed 8 nice cats the biggest at 29" which was sent back in to swim around again. I thought the bite was tough for us. I wondered if the other 2 rigs i saw at the landing caught anything or if anyone else experienced a little slowness. or we just can't fish!!!! what a great time i could do that everyday! I am jealous of Backwater ED! It was nice to just go fish for fun and relax. I also caught a big old snapper downstream from the landing a mile or so. Do the goldeye go hot and cold just like any other fish? they weren't even jumping much. still had a blast.

I was out fishing on Saturday morning (September 7) south from the Convent landing. I was using frozen goldeye for bait and caught some cats, but the fishing has seemed to slow down some from how the catfish bite was in August. It is still great to get out on the river to fish though. Hopefully the walleye bite will get hot soon. Bruce

Goldeye have been hard to get now. I was out on the Red tonight and tried to catch some goldeye for bait with no success. I tried many of the spots and techniques that worked earlier in the season but that didn't work tonight! I froze some goldeye that I caught earlier so they have been nice to have for times like this when the goldeye aren't cooperating. I acually like to use frozen goldeye better than fresh goldeye. The frozen goldeye stays on the hook better and and is easier to use with less mess. The cats don't seem to mind the "goldeye popsicles" either! Bruce

      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!

      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.
