Hi Wazz,
I was already at the lake on Sat., so I didn't see your post. Hopefully you made it up the weekend, the fishing was incredible. It was a little windy by the windmill, but not to bad. It was a perfect drift from south to north. The fish were biting all the way from 26' to the top of the breakline. I had the best luck with green crawlers, yellow hooks and 3 beads (red, diamond, red) 7' leader. It sounds like from other posts they were also doing well with leechs. Good bobber bite at night on the rocks Saturday, but it slowed down on Sunday night a little. There were quite a few boats on the flats, but I didn't hear how they did.

Thanks Scott, I figured you were up, we did make it on Sunday. The 5 year old caught 2 eyes, his first walleyes. First time in the boat...We had a good time, I can't belive all the people that were there I haven't seen that many people on the lake for some time.
Have you checked flats yet? You said 28' feet the must be on the flats then. I seen alot of fish caught all mostly small males. Where are the big ones?
Well thanks for the response, see ya soon.

      Thanks, I'm riding this now "TW200 pictuer wouldn't post" so not sure I can get on any of the ATV trails. Might have to sled by in the winter! 👍

      There are actually 3 tree carvings on the trail from Soudan to Ely.  I saw 2 of them but missed the 3rd.  I believe that trail is the Prospector Trail #4 or #6.  You have to start from the parking lot on the Murray Road 2 miles past Soudan since several property owners on the old railroad bed didn't allow off-road vehicles on their properties.  Another option is to travel from Tower to Embarrass then on to Ely, but that adds a couple hours to the trip.

      I've seen that caving on a few web pages. What trail is that on?  It would be cool to ride by. 👍

      The colors are getting good. Beautiful time of year. Maples are full red and birch and aspen are going too.  I’m not finding a formula for walleyes. Best luck when fishing saddles and shoreline drop offs 10’ down to 20’. I’m using old crawlers, too, because a) it’s hard to find minnows although Northwoods in Cook has them and b) it’s been too warm to keep them alive.  We do have a change in weather happening right now. Wind is coming up and the temperature is dropping. It’s going to be hard to fish Saturday through Monday but the change could be good after that.  Good luck, you’ll need some. They are out there and you’ll get dinner but you’ll have to work for them. RLG

      Thank you. Yes, weather does look sketchy but we'll make the best of it. Looking forward to the colors and just getting away.

      Some more heavily fished lakes are tough ALL season.  Lake Minnetonka and Mille Lacs come to mind.  The water is clear, there are tournaments all the time, and the fish are not easy to catch.   That is why I focus my efforts on lakes with less pressure.

      Was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week for a UHV ride to Ely.  Made it out fishing for a few hours those days.  Walleye bite for me was fairly slow but I was only using leftover crawlers.  Most others I saw were using minnows so maybe they were having better luck.  Fall colors should be at peak on Vermilion.  Weather doesn't look the greatest however. Good luck and enjoy the fall season on the lake.
