Hi Bill: Yup, put the Sporty away for the winter. There was 4"s of snow when we left on Tuesday at 4AM. Lots of slush on the roads too. But the water temps are still in the 50's, so no Ice coming yet up there. I was in the water when I pulled the boat out at Wheelers. Should of left the tenners on because in my bare feet I slipped on the wooden dock and screwed up one knee. Getting better now. At least my jigging arm is still OK... LOL I'll be up for first ice, probably the first week in December.. Maybe we'll see each other this Ice season.... Kaz

Sounds good Kaz. I screwed up my knee last trip in March last year. Really strechted some thing out. Has MRI, ACL and miniscus were ok, but I wore a knee brace for three months. Seems pretty good now though. We'll find out walking some CRP next week in SD. I pulled my boat home last weekend, hated to shut down, but thats what happens when summer changes to fall. Hopefully we can cross paths this year. Bill

      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
