Is there anything being caught by the bridge between Wahp and Breck? Last I heard it was slow. Anything is appreciated.

I have not been down that way and I have not received any reports lately.

Generally this time of year look in a differing location then you mentioned, try farther South or North of #210 a ways.

Be VERY careful near bridges, the ice is poor in necked down areas!

thanks for the reply BE, are you saying a few miles north or south of 210 or what? i noticed there are a lot of shacks right in town by the dakota ave. bridge. would you recommend the main channel or deep bends on the river for walleyes, thanks for the help

I would get away from the herd, that bite tends to be early ice then slow from then on. You may see a bite again there at late ice?

Looks for deeper sharp bends and then work the inside turns at the head and tail-out of the deeper holes. Active feeding fish tend to hunt these areas, deep fish tend to look and not bite much, lookers not hookers. Low light periods tend to produce best on average for walleye.

Don't get hung up on "deep". Deep is relative to the area you fish. Most active fish may be in as shallow as 3', seen that often in that region. Odds are still good they will relate to deeper pools, but feed shallow, very near structure such as snag piles.

Try 1/2 oz. KastMasters or a 1/2 oz. blade bait like a Gold/metal fleck ZIP lure tipped with a minnow head.

For pike try a smaller Rattle Trap style lure (3/8 to 1/2) and RIP-IT...then Pause...RIP-IT...then Pause. On less active fish pound the Trap so it wobbles from side to side and produces a more subtle chatter sound. I recommend a light wire 7-strand steel leader or the pike will snatch your trap and be gone. Pike go nuts on this, a good choice in the day. You often get bigger active walleye on this at dusk too. Try silver/black or a bluegill colored trap, they imitate small Sheephead/drum and bass well, a common forage in that region. The Millennium Shad traps sold here on FM.com are awesome for ice fishing, I use them a lot!

      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.
