I'll be out on Cooks Bay in the afternoon. Will have to come in early for Christmas dinner, though.

I guess I would rather stay home and entertain the in-laws. tongue.gif

Probably not today ..... but was yesterday, and will be tomorrow.

I'm only going today if I need to get the kids out of the house and run off some energy grin.gif

Cars and trucks driving around on the ice too.

I stayed a bit closer to home and hit O'Dowds. I couldn't believe how many perms are out there in front of the landing...a small city with a quite few vehicles driving around.

I got off the beaten path about as far away from everyone as I could and started deep. Found very little action, so I drilled a series of holes up the break and finally found a good bunch of fish at 15'. Lot's of perch with some eyes mixed in. Nothing real big, but a few of the perch were suprisingly plump.

Got a chance to try out my new AquaView Scout II. I was impressed with how clear it was!

went to Prior yesterday afternoon with my SIL's boyfriend. Caught 8-10" crappies for about 3 hours and then they shut down, were still on the Marcum but they shut down.

12" of ice and full size trucks all over the place. Only a matter of time before prior makes the news again with trucks falling in.........

dtro, I thought about going to Odowds but figured I didn't want to walk all the way out to the deep hole. Where were you drilling holes on the break and catching walleyes..... grin.gif

I wanna get out tonight.

I was tooling around on the snowmobile last night on Prior and stopped and talked to a few people.

Let me know if anyone wants company on Prior or O'dowd today.

Went out on local drainage pond looking for some slabs, all I got was about 30 5"-8" crappies. This was Christmas Eve Morning.

Besides that, been working on my basement every night for almost 2 weeks. Got to get it done.

Good luck to anyone who goes out. cool.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
