vermilion newbie

4 posts in this topic

I am going to fish Vermilion this weekend for the 1st time. We are planning a houseboat trip up there next year and want to take our 1st wack at the lake to familiarize our self with the little bit of it we will see. We are coming down from Myrtil on fri and will probably start out on the west end unless somebody has a better idea. We will be fishing wallys and some pannies i suppose. Any body out there with some tips. I don't need you secret spot or anything just some general tips on a good place to start and whats working up there recently

Here on the East end jigs and lindy rigs baited with leeches or crawlers are wotking best for walleyes.

Cranks are also working well in the mornings and evenings.

Thanks Cliff, Any word on depths and typical hideouts during various times of day?

Troll cranks in 6' to 12' or 17' to 20' ranges.

Pitch jigs into 1' to 6' weed or rock edges or fish them at the bottom of rock reefs where the rock meets the mud line.

Lindys have been working well in depths up to 42' for me.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
