I was very close to going out last night after the so called weather. I'm confident we would have caught fish.

I'm not a total believer that weather can totally kill a bite. I just changes things. It may put fish in a negative mood, but often times you can still entice a few to bite with the appropriate presentation and such.

I'd fish after a storm anyday. Somedays we do average/decent and sometimes it stinks.

I think if we let the weather dictate our fishing schedule we'd almost never get out. If I have plans to fish, that's what I do (unless its unsafe)

I tend to think that different species are affected in various ways. From experience trout seem to be the most affected, especially with rain and rising/off colored water and just weather in general. It seems that bass/panfish and such you can catch by changing tactics or presentation mush like Tyler suggested. Trout I have not figured out a way to get them to cooperate if weather is an issue. Maybe someone can enlighten me.

      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
