Went out last Friday night. First time on the lake. 5 small crappies in 26 FOW. I've got more faith in that lake than just 5 small ones (5" to 7"). Going again tommorrow night I'll let you know how I do. Hopefully slush has froze some, pulling was a pain.

Yes out from the landing on the south side by the church. Anywhere from 16 to 26 FOW we found fish. A lot more suspended up 4 ft off bottom on the deeper side. These were the more active fish but still finicky and small. I might try Little Stanchfield on my next outing.

Ice conditions still the same 4" good ice with lots of water and slush. I thought it would have improvedsome over the last few days, guess not. I think it's going to take a while. In the mean time we'll just have to catch some fish to make up for it. smile.gif

Are there any pike in this lake?

I live close and was thinking of spearing here.

Any advice?

Or is there a better lake to spear?

I saw a couple of spear houses out there, but i could'nt tell how they do. A lot of the lake on the west side is reed filled and shallow with a few deeper holes near by. I think it would be worth a shot.

      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

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
