Pick a weed line or rock reef and start fishing. Im not joking. The hole lake holds fish so if you can find the cabage there will be fish in the area. Same goes for the rocks.

The answer to your second question is yes. Kind of like Duck said in regards to spots, all areas can hold fish if the conditions are right. I tend to concentrate my efforts in as shallow as 1 foot and out to about 18 to 20. But there's fish out in 30+ as well. Just have to find where the active fish are on that particular day.

Every year several walleye fisherman land big muskies fishing spinners on the flats, but I think you will have more consistent success fishing 20 fow and less...at least I have.

      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
