Well the crappies have finally took off in my neck of the woods, in the last week or two we finally have run into good crappie bites on a few lakes. We've been staying away from the crowds and seem to find active fish every time we go out. All we do is find the deeper water(20 feet or so) next to some shallow structure(12-14 feet or so) and the bite is kicking in good compared to earlier in the year.

The fishing has been really good for the crappies and the walleyes picked up during the warm weather. I'm sure I won't be out again till the weekend but the crappie bite has been HOT.

Crappies picked up the other night. The bite was late, but still pretty good. They were pretty small but still fun.

Yes, definitely a mixed bag though, The average is 11-12" with an occasional 13" and some smaller 8-10 inchers thrown in.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
