Vermillion smallmouth

11 posts in this topic

I'm looking to make a smallmouth trip to Vermillion in the next week or so. Will be fishing out of Tower. Am I better off fishing the deep rocks or cabin docks?

Hey WFM, welcome to FM. Good to see you here. grin.gif

Probably you'll get some responses here, but you should also post your inquiry over on the Vermilion board.

Shallow rocks.

I'd also float your post past Deitz's nose, as well as Ray Esbolt's in the bass forums. They're both Vermillion smallmouth junkies.

Regarding docks, I know Ray said that muskies lay under a fair number of them as well, but for the real scoop, talk to those guys and others in the Vermillion and Bass forums.

I will tell you everything you need to know about bass on the east end.

Where to fish=

deeper docks

underwater boulders

underwater rock points (especially out from islands)

cast by any underwater log doesnt matter the depth

cast by dead heads

Proof this works

I've come to the conclusion over almost 40 years of fishing that anglers can be divided into two groups and no other grouping matters: Those who want to smile in pictures and those who want to look tough. grin.gif

Thanks for the info, SledNeck. I'll be using that info my ownself.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.

      This year I will be able to leave Finn at home, so I can fish. @Cret Jigs @Shack Anyone I missed come and join the fun. Let's get this set so we have time draw a crowd!
