Just finished with the last details and finalized my new job in Grand Rapids and will be starting the 26th. Looking forward to being full time at our place up there instead of just weekends. Also am glad to being a full time local again.

Hey knoppers,

My husband just quit his machinist job in Rapids and we moved to WI. We have a house for sale in Rapids. You could buy that and the place he used to work is hiring machinists so you would be all set.

why did he quit? not a good place to work, or did he find a better job in wisconsin.

thanks for the info, and will check into the jobs in the area.

knoppers,

It was a pretty decent place to work but I am originally from WI and we both got much better jobs here. I'm just happy my husband likes it here because I was pretty homesick while living in Grand Rapids. It can be a tough area to find decent paying jobs up there but the fishing is great. Thats about the only thing I will miss about it. Good luck!

p.s. did you used to live in the area? If so, whats your name? I wish private messaging worked!!!!!!

fishtrapgirl,

keep me posted on how your turkey season is working out. I'm headed down to the Baldwin area May 9-13 with hopes of arrowing a gobbler.

      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
