Well I know there is quite a few houses out there.

I was fishing there this weekend and caught a few crappies but nothing spectacular.

On that lake it depends on what you want to fish for and where. You can get a good mixed bag of fish out of the lake. I have caught some nice sunfish out there this year, some pike and also some crappies. But this weekend the bite wasnt to hot for anything. But I did see a lot of houses come out onto the lake.

Was out there last night. It was pretty slow got only 3 craps. Don't even waste your time trying craps at night everyone I talked to said they shut down then.

I was out there in the afternoon it was slow but some activity. They were down there but didn't seem overly ambitious to bite. A buddy went this morning and was off by 10:00 with his limit.

It all depends on the mood of the fish.

Some days they will bite in the morning some days they will bite around noon and some days they will bite right before sunset. Its a hit and miss deal with mostly missing (for me). tongue.gif

Hey psegriz do you have a perm out on the lake or not? My dad has one out there and it seems like after last weekend I should be able to know someone on this site with all the houses there. But I shouldnt complain its better than some other lakes I guess.

Good Luck Fishing!

iceismine, where are you fishing at out there on nest catching crappies at night?

Im kind of on the outside of all the houses near the big island. And your right too, its a large group, the most houses I have seen there in a long time. And it can be a slow relaxing day bite, b/c them buggers are picky. Id figure if you find them when they move shallow at night you might have a better shot. Since all the fish from that spot are gone once night falls.

Hey guys, nice post going here. Just wondering what the size is on the crappie that you're catching. Localguide, any size to the gills that you were catching?

Thanks,

i fished nest amongst the village by the big island on wed. from 10 til 1pm and got 4 crappies, 2 eaters and 2 babys. i had fish on the graph almost the entire time. switched lures 4 times and bait 4 times and they would not take the bait... tough bite but i wont let them get the best of me!

Some had a football look to them but you had to pick through a few also. I tried fishing in front of the girl scout camp and its been kind of hard to find them this year.

The crappies near the big island are picky, there can be a lot down there but its a slow bite. The size isnt quite there yet either. Most of the fish are 9"-10" with a few smaller and a ocassional bigger one. The most fish I have caught in one day is 20 and that was from dawn to dust. I even marked fish down there all day that day but nothing exciting happend.

One lake that I need to try yet this year before the ice melts is Long Lake near Hawick. I would venture to guess they have the same kind of bite over there but maybe have some better size to the fish.

Anybody been over to Long yet this year?

If you are looking for action, I can always catch some pike on Nest. I know that there are a few big ones in there too. You'll catch the occasional Smallie, Large Mouth, and Eye too.

I finally tried outside the group by the big island, and I only caught 2 10"ers with walleye spoons...go figure! The same thing happens on other tough bites on other lakes...for me at least.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?! 
    • eyeguy 54
      yes indeed, its fun when they fight back. lol .  the cgi's got a workout! I put a jar of the secret bait in my red box as soon as I got home.     BWAAAAA HAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ! ! !
