Here is my report I promised you about LOW! 2 of us fished caught over 100 at Zippel Bay yesterday. We fished in 20 feet of water by Twin Trees. Ice thickness was varied. My partner was 75 yards away from me and had ice thickness in his holes of 12 inches and 8 inches. Where I fished it was 6 inches! The road out to the lake was in great shape but with the high winds yesterday many new cracks formed but overall was still pretty good. I caught Saugers 2 to 1 over Walleyes. Saugers were from 14-17. Walleyes were between 14-18 with no big ones caught. We could have been done early but we stayed until 3 to try to catch a big fish. Bobber pole 2 to 1 over jigging! Hope it helps!

Wobbler,

Thanks for the report. My dad and some guys ended up heading up there last weekend but I didn't go. They did pretty well. One of their houses caught many more eyes than saugers and the other was just the opposite. I think they were in 23 fow. No big fish either.

Later,

Granny

      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
