Getting on the lake?

6 posts in this topic

I am trying to make one more trip up this year! What will the shore look like as far as driving on after all of this warm weather? This weekend I dont think that there will be any problems but I would like to fish in the warmer weather that we are suposed to have next weekend! I just dont want to drive 4 hours only to not be able to get on the lake. Any input would help greatly!!!

5 degrees tonight and 10 degrees tomorrow night. This weekend is no problem getting out. The forecast for next Wed. is 44 with showers, Thursday is 54 with some showers. I'm hoping to keep the houses out until the end of the month but I'm starting to squirm a little. crazy.gif Beyond 2 feet of water we'll be fine. But how to get to 2 feet of water. confused.gif

Looks like Roger's website thinks he'll be shut down for trucks after this weekend (18th) and questionable for ATV's past the crack for even next weekend (24th). Any updates on the other access points would be appreciated.

Just talked to Todd at Morts Dock (also on the southshore, down from Rogers) and he said the conditions are good at Morts. The access and the roads are good and they are still open to all vehicle access and will continue to be as long as people are able to get out safely. He does have a bridge out on the pressure ridge which is in good shape now. We don't know what the wheather is going to do, and it's too far away to predict next weekend, but they are hoping to still have the access and roads in good shape to allow vehicles out next weekend...again, weather permitting. As for fishing, this weekend they had some anglers out hole hopping under 2 miles out and they were doing fairly good with the crappies.

Also talked to Westwind and they said their access and roads are in good shape and not going to close the access down to vehicle traffic now, and most anglers are fishing this side of the break. Our anglers out of Hillmans last night said travel was good. Again, as for next weekend...if you are heading up on Friday call the access owners on Thursday to see what the latest conditions are.

      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
