Nothing more fun.

5 posts in this topic

This last weekeng I ice a 27 inch northern on 4lbs line. The best 15 minute fight ever. I love catching big fish on light equipment. Still my recored is a 14lbs carp on four pound. What the biggest fish you guys brought in on light gear?

I snagged a 28 lb carp in the tail a couple years back tossing a jig and twister for walleyes at night with 4 lb test. When i was young growing up in an area with virtually nothing but carp holes around we used too take our ultra lights with 4 lb test and fish for carp. A guy learns in a hurry catching 7-10 lb carp on light tackle how to catch and land big fish. Doing this is how i learned to backreel. What i blast that used to be.

A few years ago I caught a 5 lb. lrg mouth on 4 lb.test in open water, & a 5 lb. muskie while fishing for sunnies, both on French. Back reeling is what I've come to rely on, it's hard to trust a drag when you have a mis-match going.

      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
