Late Call For Professional Services

Recommended Posts

Hi Vermilionites!

Gotta' love the quiet before the storm.

I'm hoping that there is a V. Guide of quality repute on this board who has the day of Monday,6-13 open for a full day guided service. Please post Contact here.

Should be an adventure as a very good friend & charter captain from Kona & Honolulu respectively will be visiting at that time. We are spending the week on Big V, even though I have a comfortable cabin on Eagles Nest #2 only 15 miles away. The chance to hook a Varsity fish lures us from comfort to camp.

So guides if you have that Monday free & would like the business Guiding & the Business of swapping stories regarding the Big Blue, please post.

Thanks a Ver-Milion! grin.gif

I should add that we would like to target the BronzeBacks & 'Eyes.

Thanks FWP

I was hoping to find a guide to fish both species. May-hap a morning / afternoon mix bag. This Hawaii guy is Really into catching some Smallies.

Will keep your contact info!

Hi casaloma,

I guide for smallies, however I am already booked for the month of June. Checkout the guide listing at lakevermilion dot com for contact info on most of the Big V's regular guides, I'm sure you will find someone there to suit our needs. grin.gif

Thanks Ace,

I'll go there & hire!

Next Question.

Can anyone name a place where one can look into renting a nice island campsite for a number of days. I don't know if I want to risk the first come first serve nature of the designated campsites. If the price is reasonable for a nice site I'd rather do that.

Thank you & good luck to all as focus turns to the fishing the lake this weekend! -CLoma

I dont know of any where that you can rent a campsite on an island. There are quite a few nice sites on Hinsdale island and also a few really nice ones around portage bay but as you said they are first come, first serve. I could be wrong on the renting part but Ive never heard of any sites that you can reserve.

Well, Gary The Guide had the afternoon off, so I booked him for the duration of that Mon. 6/13. He's willing grin.gif to fish smallies in the afternoon & Walleye in the evening, just what we are looking for.

Getting real excited for the early-mid June snap...

Later- CLoma

Yeah, Loma, I am getting out of control man, I just got another package from Cabelas today in the mail and I'm still waiting for another from Bass Pro Shops. Cabelas ships way faster but didn't have some of what I was looking for. I also went out and got a light for my forehead so I can look like some kind of Walleye hunting Cyclops. Like I said bro, I'm leaving all the Walldo tackle up to you so all the lindy stuff, spinners, slip bobbers and other goodies is your dept. Maybe we should check with Gary to see what we should stock up on? I have the Smallmouth chewables covered. I am very much looking foreward to stretching some fishneck with you, and Gary. Hey I was checking out the Vermilion web cam today... Did I see snow on the ground?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.
    • Pat McGraw
      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline. 
    • CigarGuy
      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
