Well,as I type right now Im waiting for this early AM storm to pass by.Looks like a pretty good light show is heading this way.Will be looking for fish in the Bayport area this morning.I dont anticipate the weather to hurt fishing,Its not a cold front.From what I saw yesterday up in the Osceola area,we may see the Croix rise some more in the next week.Im a little suprised it hasnt gone up more already with all the rain we have had lately.Good luck this weekend to all,Ill post my findings today when I return..

Today didnt go to bad,found eyes in 18-20fow early on but could only get them to go on crankbaits.Tried rigging and jigging in the same area with no success.Headed south of the 94 bridge to try my luck down stream but drew a blank.The water down south of the 94 bridge was much clearer than up river.You can see the difference as soon as you hit the Hudson nowake.Surface temps ranged from 62 to 66 today.Silvers as usual are commiting suicide.....Good luck out there.........

I couldn't believe how much the river has risen in the last couple of weeks. Saw plenty of walleys and smallies on the camera in 12 - 15 feet but they where pretty tight lipped! Managed a couple of crappies and a bunch of rock bass before the sun went down. It was almost the perfect evening on the river!!

Made it out from 10-2, couldn't keep the crappie off the minnows. Got a couple small sauger on the deadstick trying something different - tied a clown husky jerk rigged on a 3 way 4 ft off the bottom. Ran into a guy at Boomsite launch that got an 11 lb eye north of Stillwater while checking out the fall colors with his wife. He said he got it on a stick bait as well.

      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

      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 ]
