Anyone know where Miller Bay on Rainy is located. Assume it's within Canadian territory. Thanks in advance.

Got my map out. It is off hwy 11 just north of Prospect Bay:) Or north of the causeway bridges leaving ft francis 7-10 miles. Guessing by the way it looks on the map.

The smelt travel the main lake most of the summer. Learn to locate them and you'll find the bass. (Walleye and big pike too). The easiest way is to go to the main lake points and rockpiles close by. Baitfish bump up against this stuff, game fish are there to intercept them. The bass may not be right on the structure but close by. I have my methods of fishing the smelt patterns, others have theirs, it's up to you to find out how. (its part of the fun).

      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
