Hello,
Staying at Driftwood lodge 28th-1st and was wondering on a few things. First time on the lake(we go to new places until i find a place of a lifetime.) Been fishing Vermilion the last few years and had a excellant tip this year from 2 people from this forum. Hope that I can get some info here.
From everything I read, fish will be deep? How far do I have to go to find some fish, I think driftwood is on the southern shore. Is it at that time of the year that minnows and jigs are the ticket. Mainly after walleyes but the kids and wife will be with.
Hope to hear some info and if anyone needs info on southern minn. just ask! Thanks, Joe

Hi I've been going to kab for 14 years had a very good time this year as well, the walleye I can't help you with but the northern Thats all I fish, we caught 3 big brutes this year over ten and many over 5 , and several (100) or more under, The primary spots we caught them were peterson bay and in the pocket to the south of echo Island also ek lake you have to go to the visitors center to get the key almost every cast a 3 plus pound northern, in the rain on top water chartruse buzz baits 2 blade and spider wire 20 lb , 4 inch curl tails also used a zarra spook for the biggest northern I,ve seen there in the water at the boat 20 plus , no I did not boat it but it looked like a torpedo chasing my tiny zarra spook (standard 5 inch) in the perch color pattern, just a reminder from god there are bigger ones and I will be back next season, I hope you have a great trip Don and Brenda Grainger are very nice people, Don can set you up with the waleye bite, we went to rainy lake with him and caught many fish (No Pike) cant hold that against him, Ha

Hey Joe, You'll be staying west of the part of the park I'm most familiar with but here are a some things that come to mind.

First, there is no subsitute for current, first hand knowledge. Ask your resort owner for all the latest info on the walleye bite. He will be happy to show you where to go on your map. Sometimes they will even take you out for an evenings' fishing if you ask.

Secondly, get out early and late in the day. Walleyes are usually most active in low light conditions.

If you find a group of boats working a certain point or reef give it a try. There is an old saying that 90% of the fish are in 10% of the water. I believe it.

Be flexible in your presentation. Jigs and minnows work but so do crawlers on Lindy rigs and spinner rigs. Also, if all else fails, try trolling rapalas in 10 -20 feet of water at dusk.

Lastly, please mail me a check for $500 bucks. I distictly remember teaching you everything you know about your job, sports, your love life and now fishing....I'm getting tired of taking care of you!

You should be in for a great time. Walleye fishing is picking up. Jig and minnow is doing a good time right now, polar bear told it like it is. For the kids, N.Pike and SM Bass are pretty active, if walleye action is slow. Driftwood is a nice clean place and they have lots of friendly chipmunks, bring peanuts and they will definetly entertain your kids.

stayed at driftwood aug 3-10 nice place. caught some nice walleye just outside the weed line in petersen bay trolling floating raps right above the weeds in 8.5 to 9 ft of water. also found a finger that extends from fin island to deep water. it has three rock humps on it that are marked. caught some nice northern and walleye off it trolling deep diving husky jerks in 16 to 18 feet of water. just need to have a stiff rod to troll them. we caught fish just about every time we came in contact with the edge of the rock homps.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
