Cold Weekend

2 posts in this topic

Headed out around Bismarck with the gang and woke up Saturday morning to a sleet/freezing rain. A little miserable to set up decoys in but we got the job done. Finished early enough to take a little snooze in the blinds before sunup. I thought I was dreaming when i awoke to snowflakes. The day ended up being very good. Had a lot of drakes lock up and come into our decoys out of no where in the fog. Shot 2 lessers as well. The tip of the migration has started with seeing alot of lesser flocks. All in all the day was a good one after the feeling came back in our toes smile.gif

      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
