Lookin for walleye

3 posts in this topic

Coming up to Chippewa Lodge on Leech's Southeast side Aug 11-18th. Wondering how the bite is ... what's working, colors, what time of day. Maybe even other area lakes, seen some stuff about Woman on here. Is the night bite still on there. Any info would be appreciated, don't worry I won't catch 'em all. I've got an older Crestliner (grey) with a 90 hp Yamaha, if U see me don't be afraid to say Hi. Thanks

Spent the last week in the area, found a few walleyes and norderns in the evening along the east shore trolling plugs. Also got some on the east side of Bear Island during the day on plugs when it was windy. There is a shallow flat that is located right in front of Chippewa that is good for eyes at nite too. I like to use plugs cause the crayfish get all over bait this time of year.

Thanks for the help Bad Moon, I forgot to add, I'd read about gill nets up there. I've never been on a lake with gill nets, are they well marked, where abouts are they on the lake, or are they nothing to worry about.

      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
