Full Moon Bite

3 posts in this topic

First time out on the big pond with a full moon. Would tonight be a good night for the crank bite even though it's overcast and breezy? If so, where are the good reports coming from and where should I start?

Thanks!!

Your always going to catch more fish by not worrying about if the weather is going to make a good bite or not, and just going out and giving it a shot no matter what the weather is... Find ricks piles (they are all over the lake, especially in the south) and starting trolling shads in 6' to 12' of water... You'll find fish...

Thanks for the info, it's much appreciated. I was just worried due to bringing a friend who doesn't fish at all and wanted to find some eyes so he can have some fun.

We will try the rocks on Indian and see what happens.

Thanks and happy fishing!!

      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
