I'm renting a shack on this date with some friends. Will I catch fish this time of year? Feb 19th Or should I try to go sooner?

If you're talking walleyes, the sooner the better! Plus, I'm pretty sure the walleye season is closes on the 15th. Perch season is open then, and for the jumbo's later season has always been better for me.

Good Luck!

So 15th is last day for walleye. We went up last year during that last weekend fishing and I managed the only fish, that place was a dead sea last year, a 4 inch wopper walleye was the only catch, thank you very much. That is the only time our whole group can go so in there any suggestion for other locations that late in the season with Sleeper huts that might be a little closer than Red. Thanks

Unfortunately the Walleye bite is no good that time of year and they cannot legally be caught. However, depending on how the bite goes for the rest of the year there can be a GREAT perch bite. I would say if you want Walleye go now!! Or as soon as possible. Once the second week of January hits it usually gets pretty slow and you have to work a lot harder to find the fish.

      Yes, MN is very difficult to register anything that had a title or a original registration card. I've ran into the same issue with old snowmobiles, and motorcycles it suks. Hope he can get it done over in Wisconsin for you. Good Luck.

      Thanks.  Very similar to my tactics.  I usually haven't started using lead core until August and then we are fishing in 30 FOW.  I will give it a try in 20-25'.

      It's amazing how much the water level is dropping. It looks like we've been getting enough rain to keep the forest hydrated but not enough to fill the lake.

      Finally made it up to Vermilion this summer.  Between opening our place in Soudan and entertaining the wife and dog I only made it out on the lake 1½ hours Wednesday evening and 3½ hours Thursday morning.  In those 5 hours all I caught was a 10" perch.  I had 3 other light bites and that was it.  The wife caught two 8" eyes Wednesday and didn't get out Thursday morning with me.  Vermilion Fuel and Food didn't have rainbows, and their chubs were very small and pike suckers were too big (they did have a river-mix that looked good that I should have tried).  I did see a few mayflies on the surface so I will blame all of those factors on my lack of success, although my lack of fishing skills factored in also.  Many others fishing around us and I only saw one other fish being landed so maybe I wasn't the only one struggling to catch fish.   Water temp was 65°F in Stuntz Bay and the water level is running 13" lower than last year at this time as shown below.  Good luck fishing and enjoy the lake.  It was beautiful out there.
