I will be fishing the Clear and Gabbro lakes, as well as south kawishwi from June 6th through the 10th...I am looking for the color of the water, recommended tackle, and opinions on live baits options...I would like to bring leeaches, but I fear It may be to early in the season..

I just had some customers come back from Gabbro and they did fantastic on leeches and rainbow chub minnows.

Lots of walleyes all around 2-4 pound, hitting on the leeches.

On Clear they got mostly northern pike on the chubs.

I did fish clear lake a very little bit, about 1 hour, I didn't have any luck. However, as I was headed out, one canoe was catching a few walleyes here and there on chartreuse jigs and white mister twisters. We left because the army worms were very thick.

      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.

      Some had eggs but not all, found in 7-8 ft of water in the weeds

      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.
