JP, sounds like a cold one up dere dis weekend. I have a small shack that might be able to hold two in it if it is me and TZ and I think MRP has one as well. If you get a chance to talk to MRP and figure out what he is up for this weekend that would be great. I am up for just about anything besides those 4 lakes that make up the dead see north of town. BK will be up for sure and he could use some time on the ice to get ready for LOW in a few weeks. That being the case, maybe we should fish on Big Sturgeon so he can get used to catching nothing.

I will be up on Thursday evening as I have work in Buhl on Friday. Get a plan on your end and we can make it happen on Saturday. I dont care if it is Elephant, Blackduck, or Winnie, I just want to get out there and park my butt on the ice for a few hours and have a few of MRP's beers.

See you this weekend JP.

Had dinner with MRP and TZ on Sat. TZ didn't say anything about going. Called MRP last night to see what he wants to do and he was "undecided". I'm up for anything. I've got an Otter Magnum house and my sled is running fine. Lets talk Thursday night if you get to town early enough. Perhaps a beer or two when you hit town?

Probably wont be there until 9 or 10 Thursday. Have to touch base on Friday. I dont care what those guys are going to do, I am going fishing and that is that. It would be nice if they came along, but I am not staying home because someone doesnt feel like gettting out in a little cold weather. Too many times I have ended up doing nothing but sitting around yapping with the women eating appetizers because others decided to ditch out for one reason or another. I am fishing and anyone that wants to join me is more than welcome to come along. Talk to you Friday JP.

Supposed to be -16 Friday night and a high of 6 on Saturday! You sure picked a fine time to go fishing!!! MRP is definitely out. I'm up for pretty much anything! I'll have to pull out my big sunflower heater.

update: High now will only be 3 degrees!

JP, Cal came down with a fever today. There has been alot of flu running around the school the last two weeks. So, we will not be coming up this weekend. I just dont want to take a chance getting Tony, Judy, Grandma, Taylor, or the new baby sick. Kinda stinks but thats the way life goes some times. There will be other chances to go fishing yet this year. Sounds like the fish were hitting on Winnie pretty well too. Oh well, it will keep you a bit warmer this weekend. Sorry JP, talk to you later.

Send your e-mail address to MRP and have him forward it to me. Hope your little one feels better.

I'm thinking of heading to URL next Saturday if you are interested. Leave Hibbing around 10:00am and stay until after dark. Home by midnight. Long day but I've done it many times. MRP is curling that day so he can't go. I've got a few friends that are up for it. Let me know.

JP

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.

      I just returned home today from 4 wonderful days of fishing my favorite lake. We arrived late Saturday and was able to fish a bit that evening. Our group was comprised of my cousin, one of our very close friends and myself. On Saturday evening we managed to catch 16 walleyes on crawlers, leeches, and minnows. In spite of less than perfect weather conditions(95 degree heat and high to near hurricane force winds) we ended up with 103 walleyes boated and perhaps that many missed and lost during retrieval through Wednesday early afternoon. Minnows worked best one day, leeches worked great one day, and crawlers were the ticket Wednesday with our biggest fish of the trip coming that day. The bites ranged from very light to jerk the rod out of your hand. Our terminal gear consisted of jig/minnow, Lindy rig, to my old standby 4 ft leader, 1oz bouncer, 2 red beads, and a Gamakatsu size 8 orange hook. The bouncer rig outfished the rest by a wide margin. Speed was a huge factor and .4-.6mph was the speed that worked best. The high winds made boat control/speed a real challenge. We caught all of our fish from 8ft to 24ft with the optimun depth ~14ft give or take. When we got to the lake the water temp was 64.5 degrees and yesterday afternnon when we quit, it was 68.5 degrees. We did not see any significant amounts of mayflies except in the water columns in a few areas of the lake. The fish we cleaned went from stuffed with mayflies, full of crawdads, to full of perch minnows. We found the fish in the rocks and on mud flats. I looked for the fish with sonar and only fished where I found fish. I found our fish in the east end of Big Bay, Daisy Bay, Armstrong Bay, Portage Bay, and Bystrom Bay. We caught fish at every place we stopped. Wind dictated where we fished on any given day. On Monday, I had to cross the east end of Fraser Bay and in over 60 years, I have never seen it that rough.  We found the cheapest gas at Shamrock Marina($6.29/gal) and the best bait at the Y store. We have eaten pizza at the Vermilion Club for more years than I can count and, to put it bluntly, we were very disappointed this year. To us, it was definitely not the same quality of pizza we have become accustomed to. Suffice it to say, we will be ordering something different from the menu in the future. All in all, Lake Vermilion provided us with another lasting memory. Great fishing on the greatest lake in Minnesota. We will return in mid-September and we are already anxious. Pictured below is my cousin with two nice walleyes caught 10 minutes apart. They were caught on crawlers.   Good Fishing MarkB🙂

      Maybe pay him in smoked pike so he can taste some fish instead just crunching down on walleyes all the time! 😉
