Cove Road Landing?

2 posts in this topic

Does anybody use this landing or fish this part of the river during the hard water season or is to dangerous to go out there? Thought about going out there a couple times but never have. If so where is the safest ice located and what areas should i be sure of to avoid? Thanks

I ventured out there last year and drilled not to far off the landing.There was around fifteen inches of ice there and at that time,there was twenty inches in the Bayport area.I think the difference in ice was due to the fact that snow had kind of built up from blowing down that way.There is not alot of current over there to my knowledge except around the Catfish bar area since lake St Croix flows into that neckdown.I wouldnt be afraid to take a wheeler out along the Wisconsin side all the way up to the humps out from the scout camp,but alas I have no wheeler.There are endless areas to fish there and lots of untapped potential.

      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
