Shermans Flat

5 posts in this topic

I purchased a home on the point by Wigwam Bay this summer and was wondering if anyone had any honey holes on the West side? Shermans flat is about 3/4 mile out from my house. I have never ice fished on the big pond so any tips would be awsome.

I think that the any flat on Mille lacs will produce fish. I love the flats!!!

jimmy, you are sitting in front of one of the best mud flats on the lake!!! I can assume by you being able to afford a pad on the big lake, you probably can afford a gps unit. This device is your best buddy on the big one. I always trek off milacs on the same trail i took out. ice is changing 24/7 due to size and shape of the lake. Cracks opening and slamming shut, you never know what to expect. back to fishing shermans flat, i love the cut and the finger early ice, fishing the deeper side of the breaks in the day and on the top during evening. cameras help with finding under water humps and saddles. there are some nice valleys on the top of the finger. Had a constant flow of "eyes" slowly moving through a long valley for about an hour or so last jan. not a biter in the school.

I have a Lowrance for the summer and an H20 for the winter with the lake master chip but I have not had the chance to use them enough to figure them out - plus the directions are like phone books written in Greek and I think I have A.D.D.

The H2O is easier to use then you think. If I can use it, anyone can. Once you have some expierience with using it, you will learn about all the amazing capabilities of this little unit.

      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
