hey Dad ,wanna go fishin?

2 posts in this topic

I got off of work at stopped by Rick's. Noone was home so I came home

to what I thought would be a night off.

My back is killing me from being in boats for too many days to count.

All of a sudden this thought comes to me...call Dad.

Jimminy christmas he says ..I was just sitting down to eat ,but I'll be right out after.

So we hit the lake at about 6.

He drills this nice eye to start thing off and wouldn't you know it ,it was a money fish.Dang! The pressure was on.

The wind was really hauling and our trolling was a chore.

I watched my GPS and we were screaming at over 2.3MPH so I tied some rope to a 5 gallon bucket and made a primitive drift sock.Bingo ,right down to 1.4,then the speed was right on the money and we started to haul in walleyes.

I went to the west side of the lake to get out of the wind for awhile and we smacked a fist full of bass.

10 I think in like 15 minutes with a few more eyes mixed in.

The sun dropped and the wind slowed.We moved back out to the flat in the middle of the lake.I was hugging the west break and pip.I feel this light tap.I dropped my U.L. rod back for a second and reared.

Half expecting the same ole small variety eater I come forward with my rod and holy smokes I got bottom.

Well not really but that rod bent in half & I immeadiatly killed the motor.

I told Dad I got a big one.

I worked that fish to the boat hoping it was an eye.

It ran 3 times on me back to the bottom.

Finnaly I saw his eyes glowing ,the tell tale sign of an eye in the dark running a headlamp.

OOOOOOOO weeeeee,I exclaimed.Grabbing the net I 1 timed it right into the boat.

Never did weigh or measure it ,but it took the all mighty dollar for the night.

Where in the heck was Rick or Mallard.

Here's my Dad with a tomato blood core ring-n grub doing some business.

As we left I told him I almost did not call him as I thought it was too late to make plans.

He says ,it's never too late!

      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
