Scenic Bay??


Aces In The Hole

Recommended Posts

Report for today, one small perch was the only fish caught, nice sized one brought up to the hole, and at the end, missed something on a tip-up. We saw a ton of action on the FL-18 and Aqua-View though.

Just walked in the door after driving back from Scenic. Got out there yesterday afternoon and caught three nice perch in the evening. The rattle reels woke me up at about 7am, but they were to small to take the rainbow minnows. I ended up catching one jumbo in the morning and than nothing until 10am. Got twenty nice perch in an hour and went home. This was my first visit to Scenic, and I was pleased with the service, and the upgrade from a two man to a four man because they didn't feel comfortable with the placement of the two man. I'm eating perch tonight and will be back in the near future. Thanks.

WOW, you must of been using a secret bait!! We got to Scenic on Friday at noon. Captain Ron took us to our shanty which was on Hennipen Island. Spent all Friday and Saturday till noon and only caught a 6 inch perch and a 10 inch eel pout. So then he moved us to another house where we caught a nice perch but that was it. Then he moved us over by the bay where he said we might run into some Pike!! But guess what no Pike, just 1 small perch!! So finally we just went back to our regular shack and set up some rattle reels and tip ups, played poker and drank alot of beers. Caught about 5 Eel pouts!!!! All and all the fishing sucked, but the Captain was really nice for letting us go to different spots! We just came on the wrong weekend!!Maybe next time!

I too just got back from beautiful scenic bay. Ron and Cindy were really nice. Heck they even took a message for me from my g-friend. Middle of the lake and still can't get away. Well she did let me go every monday and tues for 2 months. Tough to argue with that. I got nothing after 6pm on monday. Then Woke up and caught 4 nice perch from 7am to noon. Then I decided to move around in the portable. Got 1 nice perch and after 2 more hours, headed back to the shanty. First time on mille lacs, and Those jumbos fight a lot better than crappies. I was happy, not thrilled, but happy. maybe next year I will get my wall hanging. Good luck, and call scenic bay!!!!

It was really a one two punch deal for me. I couldn't get any thing on the rainbows, so I switched to crappie minnows on Monday. I had a crappie minnow on a slip bobber and a medium sized Northland rattler(gold)on the other rod. If something would show up to take a look at the minnow on the bobber I would quickly drop down the jigging spoon in the hole beside me. If the fish was of any size he would usaully smack it within 10 seconds. XX was the cabin they had my girlfriend and I in. I just wish she would have thought the fishing was more interesting than her book! We could have caught twice as many! Oh well, at least she agreed to do it again. grin.gifgrin.gif

me and a buddy were up for wednesday and thursday. we caught 6 keeper perch, one pout, and one fat 27" walleye. the owners were very nice and always have been. not as fast as my buddy was hoping but i was happy with the big eye. the perch came on fatheads and crappie minnows, the eye came on the rattle reel with a fathead

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it

      Del, I want to clarify my post regarding the Vermilion Club pizza. First of all, the latest online review for the Vermilion Club was July 4th, 2021. I ate there twice after that review. Both times our group ate pizza and both times the pizza was excellent. I've eaten Poor Gary's pizza for a very long time both when we visited for many years, when we lived on Birch Point, and every time we're there since we left. I could tell a Vermilion Club pizza with a blindfold on. It has a very distinct taste and smell. We absolutely love it. BUT, this time it was different. I even asked our waitress if Poor Gary's pizza had been replaced by new owners. None of our group thought the pizza was even close to what it had been. Now, I'm not knocken the Vermilion Club. I ate there way back in the late 50's when George and Dorothy Tuma owned it. They have always served great food and I have no reason to doubt that their appetizers, sandwiches, etc. are still great. Just understand that pizza and other food is made in 2 different kitchens. I don't know what changed with the pizza kitchen since last September when we were there before this latest trip but something did. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and eat there again. But next time, it'll be on wings night.

      On the south end...  Resorts are adapting to high water conditions.  Despite lots of water, the vast majority of resorts are open, charter boats are running, and summer fishing is in full swing. Most boat ramps are open including Wheeler's Point and others.  Call ahead to your favorite resort or check their Facebook page for specifics. Lots of walleyes being caught in many different locations.  Some fish are in 4-15 feet on sand capitalizing on shiner and minnow spawning.  Others are on shallow rocks eating crayfish.  Others are deeper, 25 - 33', feeding on schools of minnows and various critters coming out of the mud.     Some anglers are still jigging, but drifting with spinners with a crawler or minnow has been super effective this week.  Both methods are working.  Gold, glow, and pink have been good colors this week for jigs and spinners. Trolling crankbaits and covering water has been very effective this past week.  Shiny gold and purple are a couple of good colors.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, smallmouth bass and even an occasional muskie are being caught.   Anglers are allowed a combined limit of 6 walleyes and saugers on the MN side of LOW.  Up to 4 can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0" must be released.  One allowed over 28" per day.   On the Rainy River...   The river still has a lot of current.  Anglers keying in on current breaks as a rule.   A mixed bag in the river right now includes walleyes, saugers, smallmouth bass, and pike.  Sturgeon season reopens July 1st.   Current breaks off of the main channel for walleyes and saugers.  Smallmouth bass near rocky areas, feeder streams and bridge embankments.   Bays have been good for pike.  Lots of big pike and even good walleye reports in bays and feeder rivers to the Rainy River.  Lots of shiners in the river. Up at the NW Angle...  Fishing continues to be very good up at the Angle.  Anglers are fishing both the U.S. side and Ontario side of the lake with good success. Flag Island flats and areas around Garden Island were just a couple of areas good this week.  Lots of walleyes with some mixed in pike.  Fish being caught jigging, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits.   A jig and minnow and pulling crawler harnesses have been good fishing deeper structure as well.  Neck down areas, rocky points and cabbage weeds all holding fish.  There are typically some fish shallow near shore morning and evening with good numbers being caught. A mixed bag for most anglers with walleyes, saugers, pike, smallmouth bass, crappies and jumbo perch. Excellent muskie fishing with numbers of fish being caught. 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)

      Nope, not there anymore.  Just don’t get up there enough anymore.  Sadly.   Taxes are cheap enough to not really worry about and still have it.     smurf does the pissin’.  I wouldn’t do a thing like that to good furniture. 😉
