Island Lake

5 posts in this topic

A question came up about Island Lake in one of the threads, & I'm curious if anyone is fishing the lake too (this winter or past). Went there for the first time for an hour or two this summer & came up empty-handed. Reports would be welcome, I'll do the same if I get out there soon.

I drive by the lake every day on my commute to work. I as well would be interested in any reports or may just stop by and drill some holes.

Maximum12-

Do me a favor and give me your email address. I have some information you might be interested in.

Are you going to the Metro Get Together Jan 15th on WBL?

Does your boat still go 12 mph with three people in it? If it does...give me your motor an I will modify it for you. grin.gif

Take care,

Smelly, I'm always interested in information! E-mail: Corey.Kellgren A T Bestbuy.com.

My boat will go 15MPH with only me in it. And 18MPH downhill with a tailwind. laugh.gif

I might be at the WBL gathering ~ I have a buddy who puts his permanent out there randomly ever year & doesn't catch anything (seriously ~ he didn't catch one fish last year the two months his perm was on the ice). I'd like to learn a little more about the lake since I've only fished it once or twice.

Hope to see you on the ice again this winter!

      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
