....crappies galore......

5 posts in this topic

.....a decent crappie bite continues here on the river, slipped a few home for a fish dinner and released the others to be caught another day....the slow flow on the river allows you to anchor and fish spots that are normally impossible other times of the year...slip bobber and a plain hook, 8'fow, has been the ticket...decent slabs too!

...have found the stripper action to be poor on the lower end of pool 4, but the smallmouth are voracious...have done well with the bluegills also...chunky little pucks hangin out under the docks...the ones loaded with seaweed...middle of the week is your best bet as the recreational traffic is

still in full swing....and I am impressed that the jet skiers are becoming more responsible and courtious in the use of their craft...thank-you!!

Zobs,

I love to find the crappie. Can you give a general location? Maybe MN or WI side and what launch you went out of? Can always email william_wise@yahoo.com with more info. Thanks for the post, crappies are my favorite on the river and I don't see many posts on them.

I always do well with the white bass. But I do know many honeyholes marked in my GPS.

      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
