It has beeen almost 7 years since I have been to Vermillion on opener. Usually go to Leech, but it has been horrible so we are going to our cabin on Pine. I was wondering what the current water temps are now. Also My family and I always go up the week after opener and find a lot of eyes right in front of our cabin and on the backside of Pine in about 20-30 feet of water. I am graduating from UMD Sat so I won't be up to Sunday, was wondering if anyone ever fishes the flats by Potato this early also. I am a bass fisherman but my Dad prefers eyes, any info would be great.

Metz - congrats on graduating. We'll be celebrating even if you don't show up at the cabin. Steve and I are driving up Friday morning. Bill should be there Saturday morning. Depending on your post-graduation party condition, when do you think you will be arriving?

      I had a great weekend the weather was decent and fishing was good. I caught 5 walleyes 21"-25", 4 northerns largest was 32" and a 17 largemouth opening day. 2 more walleyes, 2 crappies 2 northerns on Sunday all on jig and minnows.

      We had a good opener as well we could have kept limits opening day, but just kept enough for a fish fry. Then Sunday had our little friendly tourney and everyone had a pretty good day. Pulling cranks and jigs n minnows caught fish.

      Had a great opening weekend. Son and I boated 51 walleye between Saturday and Sunday. Plenty of small stuff but no problem getting some nice keepers. This is a pic of the best weekend fish for us.

      I was on Rice this weekend also. Seen boat lifts with water up to the canopy. I was the only one to catch a fish out of the hole campground It was about a 6" crappie.

      We had a pretty good weekend. There were two couples and we limited out both Saturday and Sunday. The eyes we kept were all 15-17”.  We caught many 10-14” eyes and one 26” which was returned to the water immediately. All on a variety of jigs in 18-35’ of water. As usual the women out fished both of us😀

      Wrong area, sorry.

      I will second the advice on watching out for floating debris.  We saw a lot of floating logs and deck sections this weekend.  Also, most hazard and navigation buoys were not out yet.  I wonder how many lower units and props were destroyed this weekend?  It would be dicey if you don't know the lake.

      I will admit it.  Zero walleyes in two days of fishing.  We fished shallow and deep and marked a lot of fish in 16-20' and had a few weak bites.  A friend of mine caught 6 walleyes on Sunday but worked hard for them and he has fished the lake his entire life.  Got a few crappies in Black Bay.  I was shocked at how few boats were out, definitely a reflection of late ice out and how few docks are in because of the high water.  My fishing partner drove back to the TC on Sunday night and traffic was surprisingly light.  I'm guessing late ice out discouraged a lot of fishermen from coming north.  We need some warm dry weather.
