11 posts in this topic

grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifGot the house out today. Good ice bout 5 to 6 in. and clear as i`ve ever seen it, you can even see the bottom through the ice at 15 ft. The ice is good and the fishin is better, but don`t listen to krebsy, he can`t catch fish. I can and did 2 at 20. good luck and good fishin. Be SAFE!!!

BareK called me at 7 am and finally had a line in the water by 3:30. Can you say unprepared. I'm sure by 3:00 pm it was time for a run too the Pub for more BEER. I went out and visited and I'm sure it was my adjustments too the house and lines that made it possible for him too snag a couple. It's going too be a long winter taking care of this guy so my fishing success could be limited at the start of this season. It's always fun watching him light the wrong end of his ciggarrettes and the big bluish yellow flames that burn his eyebrows. Krebsy.. confused.gifconfused.gifshocked.gif

hey dragon the ice is about 7 inches now. I took my 8x10 house out friday. but there is a lot of snow on the lake now, so a 4 wheeler is a must, be sure to have chains on it because the ice under is as smooth as glass.

Dragon -- you talking by Zorbaz?

Let's tad team that lake -- I will put mine on a different spot and let's stay in contact on who is doing what.

When are you putting your house out -- I might do it as well -- depending on this cold spell ... I get to be a little chicken when it comes to all of this snow.

Hitman, was actually talking about around the bend from Zorbaz but either is good for me. I am waiting on a couple calls from friends, Will either be saturday or sunday, What is good for you.... I dont know the lake that well so if you point me in the right direction we could tag team it and find the fish hopefully... We have our work holiday party on friday so I dont know how early I would be up on saturday, will keep you informed as soon as I find out if the boys can go sat or sun. Would be fun to team it up and find em !!!

      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
