From previous posts, it seems like the SE end is the place to look.

Fished the south east Friday in the cold temps. 15 ft. of water. About a month ago, we had great fishing in the same location for the 10+ crappies and a few sunnies. Friday things were kinda reversed. The sunnies were stacked and aggresive they even made the rod jump. Had the best luck stay'n high, the 8+ sunnies would jump from the bottom and smack it. I did muster a few nice crappies, but they wanted the dead stick with a minnow. For the cold weather, I was suprised. I wasn't exspecting alot of action, but it sure kept me busy. Glow Diamond jig, bent out hook and euros produced the most fish.

      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
