Hey Kelly P

3 posts in this topic

Kelly, I am heading up on the 26th and have a ½ ton truck with a 16ft enclosed trailer/fish house with tandem axels, do you think it would be safe to drive out by then with all this cold weather coming? I know ice is never safe but I trust your call. I just would not like to make the trip if I cant get out with the rig.

If you saw what my trucks look like when they come off the lake in the spring you might not trust my call. crazy.gif

The best thing to do is call the road you plan on going out from as they will have the up to date info on that area. This cold weather with no snow cover will put some good ice down. At the same time with the -10/-20 temps the ice sheet will be contracting causing some cracks so keep an eye out for them.

My gut feeling is that it will be pretty good going by the 26th unless you are driving some big and heavy beast that belongs on the highway this time of year. Just use some commen sense. Spread out and don't park side by side and if you are stopping to talk to somebody park a ways away and walk over.

      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
