Recommended Posts

Tom Linderholm

Get out there if you can!!!

Got out at 6:30am this morning, solo, daughter decided not to join me. I ended up catching up with a couple other boats I was to meet up with and worked a pattern with them outside the Superior entry.

I myself in the Ballz Draggin with 3 lines in the water limited with 3 coho and 2 lakers.

The Screwball landed 14 mixed fish.

The Balls Deep landed 17 mixed fish, 1 whitefish.

We were all back on the dock by noon.

Lure notes:

Purple Challenger

Grey Bomber w/ pink spots

Glow Firetiger Mean Streak

Depth:

50 FOW early working to 90 as it warmed.

I'll jump in with our report for Monday, 5/28

Our of Loon's Foot Landing with lines down by 7:00. First laker in the boat by 7:11.

Overall, 8 for 11 (5 lakers, two coho and one king) with all but two coming off the boards or flat lines.

Two fish hit a 57 chev in the propwash (coho and a laker).

Two fish hit a clown ripstick, one on a pink black dots bomber and one on a chartruse ripstick.

The lone king was on a firetiger bomber 40 ft out on a dipsey on a #3 setting, and a laker came 40 ft down on a downrigger on a black/white proking.

Not bad for the first morning on the water for the season.

Good fishing indeed. We fished the big lake for 5 hours yesterday morning and landed 16 fish. Caught fish on the top anywhere from 17ft out to 100ft. Hot sticks for us were purple and gold/orange.

I will be out there again on Fri and Thur. Most likely by myself. Good luck everyone.

Looking for help! I've been following the forum for a few months and landed many smelt b/c of it...THANK YOU TO ALL! Now I'm looking for help with fishing as I am new to the big lake experience. I'm from Wisconsin but have a place on park point...I have a 24' Larson and I think most of the equipement that I need to get started....just lack the knowledge of getting started and catching fish (not use to fishing the big depths)...tried last weekend around the Superior entry had a few releases but came up empty. Coming up Friday afternoon looking for help, advice, coach, fishing partner or all the above...please advise

Thanks, Tom

copman, welcome to HSO/FM.

I was hoping to get out this weekend but the dang fog has got me thinking twice. Perhaps at a later date we can hookup. I will be around Canal Park tomorrow afternoon and could stop and shoot the bull.

I was able to make it out this afternoon for 4 hours after the fog lifted a bit but it was rolling in and out. Was stuck on the mn side because the guys I had with only had Mn lic. Went 3 for 4 with 2 nice kings and a laker.

I'll be back out there tomorrow if the fog and wind allow it. My boat name is "never enuff"

Surface Tension, that would be great! Even if we can't get on the water it would be great to find out what else I need to get for a good set-up and B.S. for a bit I really would like to get out early Saturday morning for a bit...my place is about 2 blocks past the lift bridge on the lake side...I'll be there shortly after 5:00 p.m. tonight. Give me a call (715) 651-6748

Thanks a ton! Tom

      Thank for the update and photo Dave and Diane! Cliff

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.
    • Horseshoe_Don
      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
