Lake Bronson...

8 posts in this topic

Any reports from Lake Bronson?

I moved my sleeper house to Lake Bronson last Friday, but didn't get a chance to fish. I'm gonna go up tomorrow(Sat 02/02)afternoon and spend the night. The Lake Bronson Lions Fishing Derby is on Sunday(02/03), this way I don't have to drive up there in the morning! "Less chance of hitting a deer"! Ya know....

I don't know if the fish bite at night on Lake Bronson, I guess I really don't care, I'm really just looking forward to fishing on Sunday. This will be the 3rd time fishing this Derby/Tournament and have had fun each time up. The 1st time I caught fish and won some money. Last year wasn't as good (it was cold though)...

If anyone has any reports, feel free to post...If your gonna be up fishing the Tournament, good luck...

My house is white with a Big Cartoon fish and worm on each side, and right now is set up by the cemetery point, feel free to stop by and say hi...If I'm there you'll see my Black Dodge Durango outside.

Talk to ya'll later.

Well, I didn't win... Oh well, at least the weather was nice!

Another good turn out, with a few fish weighed, but nothing really big, I heard it was tough for most (me included), and others did o.k.

During the tournament I only caught one small Northern, and lost a good fish that was on for a short battle before getting off!!! Grrr, there's always one that got away, right? That's it, nothing else all day. Moved once and was marking fish suspended the entire time, but couldn't get 'em to bite?

I did however catch a couple Pike Saturday night. One was caught at about 10:30pm (4lbs maybe) and another smaller Pike was caught at about 1:30am! Both were caught on the Rattle Wheel set about 10ft off the bottom. So that was fun anyways...I might have done better if I'd have taken a run and gun approach, but what can I say, I was being kinda lazy...

That's my report, sorry it's not "better", but that's what I got for ya'll. Talk to ya later.

CSP were you the one that stopped by my Ice House on Saturday Night? Whoever it was it was nice meeting you, sorry but I'm horrible at remembering names!

I was out on Bronson during the tournament..I fished on the far east end of the lake, prolly one of the furthest and just south of the small island in about 7 feet of water..we had pretty good luck with two eyes just under a pound..one huge perch with some small ones..three northerns biggest around 2 lb with one also lost on the bottom of the ice..i knew some ppl around me and all houses caught small eyes but none large..friends in the gap just to the east of the beach had a camera and marked some nice walleyes right on the bottom rubbin there bellys but not movin for nothin! Another tournament gone without the big one but it was a real nice afternoon on the lake

Are there still nice crappies in that lake? Before they drained it I remember catching nice crappies out there. Also have most of the bucks lost there antlers yet? Some I have heard are still hanging on to them.

I've only fished bronson twice, once ice fishing and once open water. I love that lake. I fished it with my fiance and her dad who passed away about a year and a half ago. He had a house with a couple other guys. It was the only time i got to fish with him. I would like to fish it more when we go up to see her mom but time doesnt always allow for it. Is there a good walleye population in the lake? Jim and i caught some northerns but no walleyes that day. I guess i was just curious if a guy can find em in there or if it is more a northern or panfish lake?

Me and my oldest boy fished it pretty heavy this summer....we fished off of cemetary point mostly, and had pretty decent luck. No walleye's were really huge or anything, but alot of good eaters........tons of perch in the lake too...

      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
