bottom bouncers

3 posts in this topic

Whats the idea behind bottom bouncers.Is the idea to keep your bait up off the bottom, say in a rocky area, where a lindy sinker would get caught between the rocks.Or why wouldn't you just use a lindy rig.

Snag resistance is a bonus as is the heavier weights available with bouncers, for the ability to move a bit faster, say with spinners..

the bottom bouncer allows you to fish cranks and spinner rigs at higher speeds and keep the bait you are using in the strike zone. it is a very effective tactic on certain bodies of water in the state. if you ask the guys on the st. louis river how many of them use bouncers 90% would say they do. it is a great way to fish live bait and cranks in deep water and current if you dont want to mess with lead core.

      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
