Mom and son's first time fishing, Madison Lake--help anyone?

6 posts in this topic

I'm going to be taking my son fishing for the first time on Madison Lake. We would like to fish for bass.(we will be fishing from a boat.) Anyone know of any hotspots? Any help would be appreciated.

Go through the narrows to the north half of the lake - lots of weeds - fish around them - the bass will hit just about anything...

Try white or chartruse spinnerbaits with willow blades. Change your retrieve speed until you find the one they want. Easy lures to use and fairly weed free.

Start on the point pleasant shore and fish it around to the church and keep goin till you reach the end of that shore fish those docks with top water stuff white works best black is ok if it's sunny out fish in between the docks and under them. We pull lots of good fish on that shore. Good Luck and have fun with your son.

      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
