Deer Camp **MUST READ**

11 posts in this topic

Deer Camp

A shack in the forest

A camper in the woods

We would stay forever

Only if we could

For we all gather there

Hunters we call ourselves

To share in the tradition

We rather be no where else

For we sit around the fire

And reminisce about the past

Talk about that first year

And carefully disect the last

For if you didn't experience it

you would never know

How much it really means

Be it 70 degrees or snow

Its not just about the hunt

But about all the good times

With family and friends

We have the time of our lives

Its only once a year

And we cherish it dearly

We anticipate for weeks

And remember past ones clearly

So as you prepare for another

Please don't forget

To be thankful for each camp

You never know when that will be it

For it is a special place

Sacred in a way

There is no place we'd rather be

It is part of us you might say

Enjoy every moment

And remember the laughs

Its almost time for Deer Camp

Its almost time at last

      Just doesn't seem like walleye territory to me. Spring crappies and great bass fishing on that arm.

      Thank you for the response!  Too mucky over there for the walleyes you think?
    • guideman
      Cliff's point about the spawn are true, more Walleyes spawn out in the basin and in other locations on the lake than in Pike bay which represents about 5% of the total eastern basin spawn. That means that all of the spawning Walleyes on the west end are unaffected by the hatchery on Pike bay.  Years of over fishing and stocking freezers has had more effect on Walleyes on the west end than the Pike river hatchery has. The DNR test nets in the fall showed Walleye on Lake Vermilion are well over the state average on both ends of the lake and the numbers have improved on the west end over the last few years. So don't blame the DNR if you are struggling to catch Walleyes. Stop fishing your memories and try something new, either location or presentation, because the fish are there.  I have been fishing Vermilion for almost 50 years now and in my humble opinion the Walleye fishing has never been better than it is right now. Ad to that a world class Muskie fishery, giant Pike, excellent Bass fishing (Both species) jumbo Perch, panfish and the shear Beauty of Lake Vermilion. What is there to complain about?  Count your blessing Vermilion anglers because it doesn't get any better than this. JMHO.
