Feeding Frenzy 09-29

4 posts in this topic

Yesterday was by far the best day on Gull this fall. Most everyone we talked to yesterday that was walleye hunting out there on Gull was catching fish. Lots of fish, including a number of big fish. Fish were caught through the entire lake north and south and from a variety of depths from 14 to the low 30s. Chubs were the ticket whether it was Redtails or creek chubs. Lets hope it continues for the rest of the week.

On a side note. I spent a morning up on the Whitefish chain a couple of days ago. It was a little tough for me. I'm sure that some folks found a good bite but I know that I struggled. We did catch a couple in 25 feet on redtails. Typically this time of the year that lake is much better. I think I'll stick to a few other lakes, until I hear a better report from up there.

Enjoy the week, it looks like a good one.

The bite continues. What an awesome day. The Twins take over 1st and the walleyes are feeding up on Gull. Today we found our fish from 24-30 feet. Bigger chubs on a rig were the ticket. There are also some big fish cruising shallow water, right up in the weeds, 10 feet.

Enjoy this weather while it lasts and Go Twins!

Yesterday was an awesome day! Warm weather, peaking leave color, Twins Magic, and great fishing, all that was missing was a catch or two by a Vikes receiver to make it a perfect weekend. Anyway my fishing budy and I had a very good AM on Gull, we landed 18 eyes and a few perch. We kept 8 14"-17" eyes and were done catching by about 9. Redtails on shorter rigs were the ticket. Man it's hard getting back to work on Mondays!

      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
