Thinking about going out to Bald Eagle this Saturday. Anybody been out towards Rocky Ridge yet?

Was there Tuesday and caught a lot of eyes but none more than 12 inches.

You may want to repost this in the Metro forum. There should be a couple recent Bald Eagle reports in the Metro forum.

Yeps, I was there very early this morning. I caught a lot of dinger eyes... No size to them, but the bite was consistent.

What part of the lake is rocky ridge, I've never heard of that? I can't even find it on the map.

rocky ridge is north of the island where the lake starts to narrow. there is a small bay behind it. in the summer there are bouys that extend from the point. thats rocky ridge.

Hope people don't keep them little eyes. That is a good chunk of the future fishery. Predation alone will wipe out a sizeable percent of them and when people start keeping a limit of them that certainly doesn't help. NOT SAYING everyone out there is keeping them, but i'm sure some are.

Iknow there easy to catch but also just as easy to put back down the hole!

Only a complete dink would be keeping 8-10 inch walleys. Then again there are more horses arses than there are horses in the world.

Thats odd I rarely catch dink 'eyes on Bald Eagle. I dont fish the shanty towns or traditional spots though.

Yeah I usually do pretty well on Bald Eagle also. I don't fish with the crowds but the three times I have been there this year so far the biggest I have caught is about 14 inches.

Hey guys, I don't assume everyone keeps the dinks but some do i'm sure. Personally i'd rather leave the crowds and find a nice quiet spot out there. Any recent info on ice?

Probably gonna slow down a bit after this nasty weather.

Good Luck, ole

      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
