I have been fishing Vermilion for 20+ years. I had a 1st, caught a huge (8-10lb) eel pout. Was working a jig and minnow off of Spider Island for Walleye. Just curious if any of you have had similar experiences? Needless to say when I got it to the boat I was super disappointed. Heard they taste like lobster if you clean and cook them right!!

Keep your hook sharp. Tadpole

Tadpole,

I usually catch 4 or 5 large pout every summer when fishing really deep water.

They ARE good eating! Cut out the backstraps and cut them into 1" to 1-1/2" cubes, boil them in salt water or crab boil seasoning for about 12 minutes and dip them in melted butter!! Great tasteing! grin.gif

They are also good breaded and deep fried.

I seen one (eelpout) caught at a distance a few years ago through the ice at McKinley park that was so big at first we thought it was a 15 lb+ northern....I walked over to the group of people and the guys that caught it got in their truck and left before I got to see it up close. Everyone was saying thats the biggest one they ever seen....I wonder what became of those guys and that fish????????????????

Caught a big one like that on Wakemup Bay a couple years ago. As I was about to toss it back in the lake a fisherman from Iowa in a nearby boat asked if he could have it. Hope he enjoyed the ugly thing!

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
