I'd try in the middle of the biggest group of houses you can find, if it were me, jk I don't fish that lake, but there should be a post or two a page back or so that might give you some starting ideas, good luck and welcome

One could go out from Westwood landing to the left and fish towards the narrows or Squirrels nest point. Or, you could go around the point to the left and fish in the center part of the Bakers bay area anywhere from 10-30fow.

Around the Squirrels nest point or near the narrows in the flat basin area, fish anywhere from 8-13 fow and move around to locate the fish.

On the other side of the lake one could go out from the north access and go to the third point or second point area. One could also checl out the area straight out from the North landing and you will see where they have been fishing by the piles of ice from drilling their holes.

Just keep moving around and one should find some panfish.

I believe it is noon to 2. It is usually run out of Westwood, but I've never fished it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

      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
