Heading up to Snowbank

Recommended Posts

strat-o-caster

Heading up to Snowbank this coming weekend. Any info about the lake would be Very helpful. We'll be fishing on the part out of the park. I'm going up with a guy that know's the lake pretty well but thought I could also use some of the "expert" advice here. Thanks; Strat

strat-o-caster,

First time I've ever written to a guy named after a guitar grin.gif

I just talked to Denny at Smitty's on Snowbank and he said the ice is about 24-30 inches, getting a few trout in 55-75 feet, but the biggest ones have been caught about 15-20 below the surface (suspended)in various depths. His guests are seeing quite a few fish on the vexilars/cameras. Not too much info, but hope this helps. smile.gif

Hey Jim,

I think you should call in sick on Wed.- put the closed sign up for the day, then you and I go out there, pound on some big honkeys, and then come back here and tell everyone how we crushed 'em out on Snowbank! Man, I am getting the itch!! Wednesday is my last day of freedom until November 15 frown.gif

Justin,

I'll have to check the schedule, but could not go to Snowbank, that would be blasphemy mad.gif, have to be Burntside smile.gif Then have to see if the 6x6 Polaris will fire up,& try to find my rods and tackle. Really don't know what you mean by last day of freedom, 'cause when you're retired, every day is Friday! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Yeah, sorry about hijacking the post there grin.gif Anyways, I have heard there have been a few fish caught out there lately. Don't be afraid to move around to different depths-even 28-35 FOW. That's about all I know-goood luck!

      Welcome back Fishandfowl! Congratulations on your bird. It seems like it has been a tough year for many. Hope you can stick around and share your adventures with us some more.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller? 
    • PSU
      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Looks good Cliff! The perch look mighty tasty!
    • vermilionfox
      I recognize where those pictures were taken!
