Big Fish Lake Launch

2 posts in this topic

Finally, I was able to get out to one of my favorite lakes last night. I was disappointed to find that the approach to the ramp had a two foot by two foot hole in the pavement. I would say that the hole was between 4 to 6 inches deep. This hole has been getting bigger for the past couple of years and yet nobody has done anything to fix it. I even joked with the CO that was there that maybe someone could get it fixed.

Who is in charge of the maintenance of the public access? And how difficult is it to take some gravel and a bucket of tar to at least patch it? I sure wouldn't mind it getting fixed and I don't think that the other 20 rigs which pulled boats out last night would mind either.

As far as the catch...1 small Northern and a hefty Bass in 23 FOW.

I was out on Big Fish yesterday and caught a few the best was the bonus dog fish that went about 5 pounds. When we left we found ourselves to be commenting on that hole as well as the one a little further up as well. I don't know who is in charge of fixing them but I wish they would fix it!

      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
