Just wondering if you guys feel it's safe to leave your vehicle/trailer unattended for a couple of days at the landings around Vermilion? I'm looking at camping on an island, so this is the likely scenario for my vehicle. I don't want to launch too far away from my campsite. But if I need to because of vandalism issues, I'll do what I have to do. Thanks for your thoughts!

Otherwise, what resort might there be in the Frazer Bay area that I could launch at and leave my truck parked there for 2 days?

AWH---Where are you going to be camping? You have a couple of options in the Frazer Bay area. Shamrock Marina is East of Frazer Bay by Greenwood Bay and has lots of parking space. Timbuktu Marina is on the North side of Hinsdale Island in Oak Narrows. Not sure what they have for parking. Good luck fishing and have fun...

I've never been to Vermilion. So it'll be a see what I can find deal as far as the camping. I want to fish the east side. And from best I can tell, Hinsdale Island will be my best option for camping. Shamrock was actually recommended to me awhile back. So that may be a good option.

Thanks,

Aaron

I just looked at a map and I hadn't noticed that landing that you mentioned in the Oak Narrows. That looks like it may be a good option, especially if it's windy. Is that landing pretty secure with the marina right there?

Yes it is right there at the marina. I don't know where you end up parking though. Where abouts are you coming from? Shamrock will probably be a quicker drive by car and the ride to Hindsdale is not bad either.

I'm coming from the Brainerd area. I thought that if I launched at the Oak Narrows or Frazer Bay that I would go through Cook first to fuel up and grab something to eat on my way there. But if I go to Shamrock I'll stop somewhere else on my way.

The map I have says that the Oak Narrows access has parking for about 80 rigs. Does this not sound right?

The launch by Tinbuktu is a very good launch. there is a large gravel parking lot there just a bit of a walk fro, shore. I dont bielieve that the marina has anything to do with the launch other than beeing right next to it. I've never had trouble there but I guess that dont mean others havn't.

Have fun!

      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.🙏
