16 Mile...or any hot reef off Babler's Road

9 posts in this topic

I have my house up there on shore. I was wondering if a guy still can get off the main road with a wheel house?? Would anybody be available to plow a road to where I would want to go?? I would like to get away from everybody else, but if I get a road plowed I bet the weekend traffic would lock on me.... Any info would be great.. Thanks

I think if you can get off the main road you can move around pretty good but plowing a road will deffinately turn you into a magnet for other houses. two weeks ago I ran around long point where ever I wanted to go an I dont think there was any more snow addition up there. Even if you just take off on your own on one of the reefs your tracks will attract others also. Not much you can do about it. Boar

      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 ]
