I was out on Hunt last Thursday. Pretty slow. 1 small crappie and a few small perch. Fished from 8 feet to 18 feet deep. Did not mark much of anything on the flasher.

how much ice was out there. I went out there a couple years ago and did quite well, bunch of sunnies, an 8 pound northern, a 4 pounder and another large fish that we lost. I'd like to head out there a couple times this year.

well I was out there a week ago and there was 6 in. so I would think there would be at least 10 maybe even 12.

If you go like to hear how you do.

good luck

There was plenty of ice. I guess I did not measure, but I felt plenty safe. I did pretty decent on the gills last year. Seemed to catch fish every time out and even found some good sized fish. Nothing huge, but found a few keepers. I am hoping a few of them have grown since last year.

      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
