This particular forum is usually plenty active. . .Kind of dead lately.

Anything going on? I'm thinking about maybe spending part of the day on Sunday rootin' around on the OT by Orwell.

Scoot, Rockin' Rod-interested? It's not a sure thing, but it's something to consider.

I'm going fishing on Sun. Not sure where yet. Maybe we can meet up. Give me and Rod a call on Sat and we'll formulate a plan of some sort.

Sounds good. We're going school shopping tomorrow in Albertville, so I should have lots of time to call you.

What are your thoughts as to where you were thinking about fishing?

Rod and D were talking about sklunge fishing at Big D, but I could be swayed into other options too. If that's the option we choose, we'd have to split up into two boats, which would be fine. I've got two other buddies who called and wanted to fish this weekend too. Story of my summer- tons of people who want to fish, and less time than ever to get out and fish.

Scoot, Remember any evening you want to fish just give me a call a day or two ahead so we can watch the weather. Open end invite. I'm going tonight so I'll post on what the fishing is like on the mighty Red.

Put it this way, I'm not sure what I'm doing. Go ahead and make plans if you'd like to. If it works for us to hook up and fish, great.

I've talked to a few people about Big D. (Just last week, a beginning 'sklunger from Perham caught some high 30's and low 40's skis.)

I'll get a hold of you.

Scoot, what's up? If you plan on coming out to Big D, give me a heads up. My wife will be leaving around 2pm on Sunday with the kids until Wed. night. We can meet out on the water and work some areas with two boats. Hope to hear from you.

Peter,

I didn't check the board over the weekend. However, it wouldn't have mattered much- I didn't get out and fish at all either. My plan is to go out tomorrow evening. See ya out on the water? I think my bro, a buddy and I will be in our boat- I'm sure you'll see us out there at the usual spots.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few.

      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down  
    • pikeandchester
      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
