Polarized Sunglasses when fishing or boating

  If you wear polarized sunglasses while fishing you will definitely catch more fish especially bass. In rivers and streams it is very important to use polarized sunglasses. Polarized Sunglasses cut through the glare created by the sun and allow you to see into the water. You can see under water structure like logs, rocks, and tree limbs. This gives you a better chance as a bass fisherman. When it comes to polarized sunglasses buy a good pair it is best to buy real glass lenses . If you buy cheap sunglasses they can cause eye strain and the plastic polarized lenses will break. Do not make this mistake trying to save a few bucks, good polarized sunglasses are the way to go.  Whether you spend your time fishing, or boating, snow skiing  polarized sunglasses are a great purchase. Real polarized sunglasses will come with a tag on the lenses that they are polarized.
Light reflected from the water surfaces or smooth water is horizontally polarized.
This horizontally polarized light is blocked by the vertically oriented polarizer in the lenses. The glare from the water produces eyestrain, and can caused you to squint which can lead to a headache. Regular sunglass tinting alone can not cure this problem of glare from the water's surface. 
 Polarized sunglasses  absorb the reflected glare and pass the safer light to your eyes which helps you see more fish and structure under the surface. You should use bands to slide on the sunglasses so you don't loose them over board.

River Fishing

You can catch many fish like small mouth and largemouth bass, northern pike, walleye and the granddaddy of them all, the Musky,  if you get lucky for it.
The small mouth and the largemouth bass love to stay by rocks, under docks and boats. Northern pike are found in deeper water, but not too deep. Walleyes like to stay near the top of the water and close to docks. Muskies prefer deep water, because it is cold for them in the hot summer heat.
If you don't want to fish for all these fabulous fish, you can go for perch, pumpkinseeds, bluegill, crappie and rock bass, which  can all be found by the rocks near the beach. Small mouth and largemouth are the best to eat, in my opinion, because they are super easy to catch and you can fillet them to get some food. It is also good with a light batter, made with beer, over a stove or a barbecue.

Walleyes, northern pike, muskies and panfish will all gather on the edge of the weeds during the day, and sometimes the panfish will suspend out away from the weeds. You can often see them dimpling the surface as they feed on bugs that are on the surface.

Lake Vermilion:

 Most walleye anglers are focusing their efforts around the Frazier Bay area using nightcrawlers with slipbobbers at around 10 feet off weed edges. Muskie action has been outstanding around the Vermilion Dam area using topwater baits. Bass and bluegills are at shallow depths using worms or leeches. The Vermilion and Little Fork rivers also are producing good walleye and bass action using leeches or crawlers on weed edges.

Eagle River

SMALLMOUTH BASS: Fish hardbottom areas, such as rock piles, and off of break edges in 20 feet of water or less. Use a plastic tube or crawfish, Senko rigged wacky, a small Mepps spinner, or a jig and a minnow or leech. All day action and the bite is good to excellent.
