Hunting around the Northfield area - 6 ducks saturday, 5 ducks Sunday. Seeing mainly woodies and teal - a few flocks of mallards and geese.

I was set to go out this morning (Friday), but was shut out due to the thunderstorm - try again tomorrow.

I have been seeing a lot of ducks in the area - thanks to the 20+ inches of rain in the last 6 weeks, the ponds are full!

Don't forget about the deer as well. I noticed that the flooded area's I'm hunting in the river bottom are grouping the deer as well. they seem to be following the high water line in the morning if you can take a day out of duck hunting. The teal are eating up the floating beens as well, huge flocks.

      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
