I'll be fishing Kab and Namakan this coming week. I'll let you know how I do and anything I hear that might be of use for you.

Just got back from a week on a houseboat. Fishing was day to day different. Fished Namakan first five days and caught fish every day. Fished around Juniper Island and Wolf Pack area. Walleyes from 15-40 feet on leeches/crawlers on lindys or jigs. Smallies were active on topwater baits and x-raps on any shallow rock piles. Most walleyes were 10-18 inches with a few in the 20-24" range. Best day was Tuesday from 12-1 in the afternoon. Fished Kabetogama the last two days and hammered the walleyes. Switched to crawlers and spinners over humps the first day. Second day fished around Green Island and pulled crawlers and hammered all sizes of fish. Watched a guy pull in and bobber fish this flat and must have caught 50 fish in less than two hours with three guys. Most of his were small, but enough to keep for sure. He was using leeches under his floats. Hope this helps. Smallies were also active in shallow rock areas on topwater and x-raps.

Thanks, Gus. O.k. the 23rd is coming fast. How has fishing been the past few days. Sounds like its going to be hotter than blazes when we are up there next week. We will be lindy rigging with leaches for walleyes. Any info on this week's bite?

      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
