Welcome to FM!

The Big Bay area is a very good area for walleyes in August.

There are also plenty of other secluded spots close by that hold plenty of walleyes and pike.

ML,

If you want to get into the wallyes and northerns I would recomend Mr. Wagenbach as a guide. I have not personaly hired him but have heard very good things about him. He knows the lake very well as far as the walleyes go and will put you on the fish. I have a cabin on the lake and when I shoot the (Contact Us Please) with others his name always comes up. Hey Cliff with that endorsement do I get a free bevarage from you? Just kidding, hope to meet you some time. ML give him a call I am sure you will get your monies worth.

You generally don't get a lot of Pike while you are walleye fishing, especially on the east end.

The best Pike fishing is off the beaten path and you have to go fish for them specifically to get any real numbers, especially the larger fish.

The west end has better numbers of Pike, however the east end is known for large Pike and on some occasions very good numbers of fish over 35". In most cases, the trophy size Pike are found out in main basin areas however, you always have a shot at a big fish along the deep weed edges, points adjacent to weedy bays and rock and boulder flats around mainlake islands and saddle areas.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
