Went out to the flats last Sat. caught a personal best

27 3/4" trolling a Rapala TD 11 in 30 FOW at 1:30 in the afternoon. Only got out for 2 hours and that was the only fish caught. Wish I would have had someone with me to take a picture.

What time of the day were you out there? We fished from 8:30 am till around 11:00 caught 1 10" eye didnt see any bait or fish in the area we trolled. Was that you that came all the way from the S and trolled N btwn 7&9 all the way to at least 8 mi? 1 other boat started around 7mi & headed south. Had my worst day on Mille this year. Good to hear you did OK. I was going to give up trolling (daytime)on Mille. You might have changed my mind if it was just a timing thing. Went over to Farm Island with redtails and had a real good time!!

      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
