This report is for North Star lake.  Since there is no section for this lake, I put it under Lake Vermillion.  I fished a whole week at North Star.  It is a very weedy lake.  Weeds didn't stop untill the 18foot depth.  Fishing was very tough.  Water is super clear.  I had 2 muskys follow up but no takers.  They seemed to stop following about 20 feet from boat.  My guess is that they spook from the boat because of the clear water.  I tried to catch walleyes.  With all the thick weeds, it was very difficult.  I decided to go at night.  I fished in the deep basin which does drop down to 90feet.  I ran big cranks on planer boards so I wouldn't spook the fish.  My first fish was a 7.3lb walleye caught 7 feet down over 40 feet of water.  There is a ton of bait every where in this lake.  I caught several other walleyes this way.  My daughter managed to catch two muskies.  She caught both of them on a tiny tear drop jig with a small piece of worm casted into and pulled above the weeds.  She landed both of them with 6lb mono and no leader.  I know, I'm still suprized by this.  Tons of musky fishermen on this lake but I didn't see anyone catch one.

Whats the lake look like up there? I'm from Ia and haven't fished Vermillion lake yet. Is there decent walleye fishing or am I better off going to Yankton above the dam?

I fished this proverbial dead horse last weekend for 5.5 hrs (2-7:30 PM) and had only one bite. I didn't get a chance to see what it was (probably a bullhead! The lake is overun with em). I fished across a channel down by the sunken bridge area. Depth went from 10 - 19'. Talked to a few other guys who had fished some different locations there and they faired no better.

Not alot of anglers fishing yet but the ones that are going out have been catching some good eater sized walleyes. Anglers are finding walleyes close to shore near transition areas. Pitching jigs and minnows or casting cranks have both been working,lindy's have also been catching fish.
