Night fishing "I hate it!!"

2 posts in this topic

Where do you fish on leech during the day for walleyes. Or is there really not a day bite, unlike winnie. Have a place in Steamboat bay. I'm tired of fishing from 8pm until 11pm. Any suggestions!

There are fish to be caught during the day. I saw you mentioned sand point in another thread, this of cource is an evening thing but during day light. The area that runs west to the landing from sand point holds fish, you just have to find them. There are some good weeds runnig out 13 to 15 ft of water about half way from to the landing. Lindy rigs with leechs or crawlers should work. you can also run shad raps but you run into pike and muskie so hold on to your rod!! This area alwasy holds fish but can be very good with a south or south east wind.

As for the sand point thing, I am not a fan of fishing the floatila but they are fishing an area of flat sand that is surounded by weeds. My expirence has been if your in the sand you will catch fish but the outer edge weeds are not so good. To avoid the group at that time of day just motor over to cedar and work the break line with lindy rigs.

      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
