Sag

6 posts in this topic

Just curious how the fishing on Sag has been the last 10 days? My group fished Sag over the 22-25 of June and the bite was one of the worst ever for us. I saw a couple of Mayflies while on the lake. Is there a chance we caught the beginning of a Mayfly hatch? Otherwise, any other thoughts on the slow fishing on Sag? It seemed like everyone was struggling to catch eyes and couldn't keep the smallies off of the lines.

I fished Sag all day Friday. 30 to 40 smallies, no walleyes.

Is there anything to the thought that the smallies are becoming dominant on Sag? A good friend of mine who has fished Sag for over 10 years thinks that may be exactly what is occuring. He says that the last couple of years have been terrible compared to the past. I know hawgs are coming out at a good rate, but has anyone brought home a nice stringer of eaters recently?

      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

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
