I'm going to be up there 2nd weekend in May. Looking for some tips on where I might bag some eyes on Reno. Also what has worked for early season on that lake. Any help would be great.

Ranger,

Reno is not typically an early lake, like Mary, Latoka or the Chain.

We wait until at least late June to fish Reno because the Walleyes in Reno love the weeds which don't mature until then.

If you're sure you want to fish Reno that early, try the break on the South side of the lake with a Lindy Rig and a fat Leech or a Shiner. We use Phelps-Floaters on Reno to keep tha bait out of the weeds. Start your search in 14-16' and work up to 9'.

If you can find any bull rushes pitch a 1/6 oz. Jig and Minnow into the bull rushes that are on the windy shores.

Good Luck!

RangerDog:

Chells is right about Reno not being an early water lake. June is the best time for fishing walleyes on this lake. My father and I fish this lake exclusively in June and July and if you are fortunate enough to be fishing before a weather front moving in you may experience the feeding frenzy that occurs on the break chells is referencing.

Have fun and maybe we'll see you out there this summer. I just bought a new boat...look for a 2003 white lund 1700 angler SS with 115 Yamaha Four-stroke. We have fished this lake for about 6 years and have taken our share out of the lake..

Take care,

John

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
