Is there any eye action on the river as of late?

Not much going on the river right now. The lake is starting to give up some crappies near the clay banks. There have been some big walleyes caught lately. The bite isn't fast and furious but they are getting some.

The 'eye bite is still slow huh? Spent the last couple weekends out there and got 2 total... Hoping to have the bite warm a little as we end out the season... Are the crappies coming thru at nite or are people picking them up throughout the day? We saw a couple schools of 3 during the day that wouldnt even look at our minnows... :-/

Was out on LQP this past weekend both days from 10:00am till 7:00pm with not much to show for it. Moved around alot from Ingrebretsons south to the eagle nest. Only caught 3 striped bass. Water was like green peas soup. Seemed like most people didn't show up until after 5:00 but couldn't stay for the night bite. crazy.gif

I'm headed out this weekend hoping to snag a few crappies.

What has recent snow done? Hoping to drive to Engebrettsons at least and maybe on the lake or south of the landing?

thanks for any info!

well, I found out why there wasn't any posts!

No body driving south of Ingebrettson's on shore.

Looked like I maybe could have made on the road but stuck in the middle of no where seemed like a poor option

If the water levels remains too high and low levels are flooded, I won't be able to get to the Marsh dam.

      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
