Welcome to the Lake Vermilion forum! laugh.gif

The fishing has been very slow for walleyes the past 3 days.

The weather has really shut the bite down on the better fish. frown.gif

It is supposed to be much nicer weather this weekend so the bite will probably improve too. smile.gif

Try lindys or jigs in 26' to 50+' of water baited with minnows or leeches. Keep your presentation as slow as possible! wink.gif

Good Fishing!

We were up for the muskie opener. Saw only 1, caught a number of pike.

But we also tried some various walleye tactics. Mainly messing around with new spinner rigs and colors, and different lengths in 20 to 24 feet of water. We did manage 8 walleyes, all released, though, a tad on the smaller side. We were pulling bothspinners and plain leaders with leeches or crawlers. Only 1 fish on a leech, the rest were on cralwers and a spinner trolling against the heavy winds. I also managed a real nice sucker on that set up. Kind of weird, but we were messing around trying different things.

Hey guys I'm just a one week a year guy to Vermillion. We usually come up on the first full week of June (Glad we made it for the second week instead this year). That being said don't discount shallower water spots. We have always had good success on wind blown rocky points, saddles and island rock piles in the 8-14 foot depths this time of year. The key is almost always the wind. When the wind has been crashing into an area for any length of time you can almost count on a walleye or 2 being on or around that spot. We use jig and leech or slip bobber and we do just fine.

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
