Pepin??????

3 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, im a newbie to your site so sorry if I ask anything that has been asked a hundred times before. First off great site, wish I would have found it sooner..

I was wondering when you guys will start fishing pepin for eyes/saugers? And what do you use on the lake early in the year? Do you use the same tactics as you do up in the river or is it a whole new ball game? Thanks

Welcome Cribbin! cool.gif

Another productive area early on can be out in front of Camp Lacapolis (sp?) Jig and a crawler. But ya gotta weed through the sheepies too. crazy.gif Other times running along the rip rap on the Mn. side can be good too.

      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
