West Sider Muskies

2 posts in this topic

I will be headed to Vermillion for the first time in early August specifically targeting Musky, Pike, and smallmouth. We will be staying on the far east side of the lake. Can anyone give some general areas that I should target for Pike/Musky. I have the speed too to go to spots quite a ways away but I would rather stay somewhat close to our cabin. Let me know I would appreciate it.

Areas outside of Stuntz bay.

The rockpiles out on big bay near the channel entrance that goes behind pine island.

Rocks near the enterance to Evretts Bay.

Rocks around Greenwood Bay.

You could just cast every buoy, rock point and weedlne...You can find your own spots the old fashion way...trial and error. (and watching where other muskie guys are casting and inputting it in the GPS)

Bulldogs and Baby loon topraiders seem to work well, but I dont know if the muskies are hitting on them yet.

      I found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
