Did anyone read the story the past day or 2 about the 4 year old who was shot to death while camping on Lake Vermillion when he ran behind a target practice the family was shooting on? I saw a very small paragraph on it but was shocked to hear the story, was wondering if any of you heard anything

Very, very sad thing frown.gif It has been in the news around here for the last few days. It seems that there was a family and friends gathering and they were target practicing and the boy snuck around and hid behind the target and a family friend accidently shot him. I can't begin to imagine what the family feels like or worse yet how the guy who shot him feels. You just can't make something like that go away.

Just an awful accident.

When will people learn?

Shooting hand guns around small children, is just an accident waiting to happen. There are numbers of gravel pits in the area where anyone can shoot targets safely. Where were this childs parents?

I would never have allowed anyone, family friends or not, to brandish fire arms around my children or grandchildren. This could have been avoided if

just one the adults would have just used a little common sence. frown.gif

Sad....very sad.

Geez, what a tragedy. To think, a little common sense could have prevented this whole thing from happening. What a shame.

I was guiding client very close to the area that the child was killed at. frown.gif

We heard them shooting for around 1/2 hour before we left the area.

I think the target practice was a common form of entertainment there, as I have heard the shooting there many times during the summer months.

Where did this happen? I was staying at a friends this weekend in Nyles Bay. We were hearing all sorts of crazy gunfire sunday (like out of control target shooting). When we left we saw a target along side the road where the shooting we heard must of came from. I'm assuming (hopeing) thats not where it happened. confused.gif

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
