2 posts in this topic

Wow, what beautiful weather we had for camping. Stayed on dryweed island. Wasn't typical walleye weather, however it didn't matter! The eyes were biting. 5-8 fow, on rainbows. Only managed two eaters the entire weekend. Many 20-24 inchers. a few 25's and 26's, the biggest being a thick 28 incher! Couldn't believe the fishing, on glass calm water to top it off, and not a cloud in the sky. What a fishery. Only one smally and a handfull of small pike though confused.gif Thanks for all of the advice guys, it is very much appreciated. It was also nice meeting tearing lips at the rainy lake one stop and chatting with him for a bit. I could've talked to him/you for hours it was such good fishing, but the 4 hour drive was due. Also thanks to rainy lake one stop for hooking me up with a brand new prop shocked.gifshocked.gif. Those dang reefs, watch out for them or else they'll send the adrenaline through ya like a bullet!! Wel'll be back in the fall for sure laugh.gif

Hey Vister,

Congrats on your success! I think I saw you guys on Dryweed. Nice big fish too! Tough to complain when your catching lots of slots huh. My group had a great day despite the gail force winds. We were able to shake the wind a bit and caught some real nice fish. We'll be out again today, and should be a tad bit easier to stay verticle on these pigs. We lost a 8lb plus at the boat yesterday. We had been fishing for no more than 5 minutes, and I was positioning the boat with the big motor as we were vertical jigging. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed one of our crew was discretely bringing in a hog. I quickly turned to grab the net, and he snapped it off. Were catching fish from 12 f.o.w. to 50 f.o.w. Glad to see the winds reside a bit. Good Fishing!

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
