Looking for pointers, no one looking at the kab/nam forum

5 posts in this topic

I am heading up Thursday night to the Ash River and I have left a few posts on the Kam/Nam/Crane Fourm and no one is out there. I am looking for a few pointers on depth, presentaion, luers and bait. I havn't been up since the 4th of July so this is a stiff learning curve for starters. Last year I fished around the same time and mid 20's on sand bottom did alright. Using buckshots and fat heads. Chartreuse and glow white. Other than that lots of staring at the empty holes. Any pointer much appreciated. Thnaks in advance...good luck on the ice!

Hey Buddy!

Sorry I can't help, but I haven't been fishing the Ash River. Hope you get some assistance from someone who has.

I haven't fished there since last summer and then it was electrofishing for the DNR at night. I haven't been angling on Kab since October of 1979.

However this was the report on the radio Friday morning for Kab. Pike are moving deeper to 18-25'. Walleyes around 30' on glow jigs and minnows. Long Point was one spot mentioned.

I was writing in the computer room while listening to Jerry's report from the kitchen but thought he mentioned Long Point in relation to Kab. That's what happens when you have one old fart listening to another old fart.

      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

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
