I fished Okabena a hand full of times and got a few eyes along with some nice perch.

I had my hard house out a couple weeks ago and caught some real nice eyes. The one in my avatar is from Okabena, also caught another that size as well as an 8lber. Last year opener was great on Okabena!

I know that early in the winter they were catching some perch and midwinter they got some nice crappies but im not too sure of anything happening there recently.

Fished it in December. Got some perch and and a couple crappies. Also some 8 inch walleyes. The perch were on the small side. 7 to 9 inches. Same for the crappies. Seemed like the perch bite was in the morning. In the afternoon never got a perch when I was out there.

My Dad did manage to get a few nice wallyes in december. 17 to 20 inches were the size he got. Ussually only got one or two of the nicer walleyes a day. One day he would get them and the next it was all little walleyes.

Have been catching a few smaller crappies most are around 8" and same goes for the perch. Nothing amazing and some bait sized walleyes every once in a while. But who know what will come in March.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
