Crappie Highway

12 posts in this topic

A week or so ago, you guys opened up the "Crappie Highway" at the 6.5 mile mark. How has it been? Are they seeing any action on it? Has it lead to the "promised land"?

There are now 2 roads angling NW. One at 5.3 miles where the pressure ridge is going to form and the other at 6.5. So far nothing great, just a trickle of crappies but our hopes are high. cool.gif

Are there a lot of people out there? Is the fishing day to day or is it pretty consitent? Thanks Kelly

Not a lot of people, no crowds. Everybody has been spreading out real good. Fishing has been day to day.

I would say that they are pretty much the ones who came up with the whole crappie highway idea, so I would guess yes!

We run 4 plows so we go pretty much where ever we want and are constantly moving.

      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
