a good day

a good day

sitting on the bank in the sun, a warm breeze at the mouth of a small "unnammed" creek that dumps into an "unnammed" river- throwing livers for cats and crawlers for whatever. caught a couple channels, one around 5-6 pounds, the other maybe half that. also one redhorse, maybe a pound.

Another fun thing- when I was there an older fellow came by, and just stopped to talk for a while- was a good storyteller too. it was quite refreshing happening across a genuinely friendly and honest stranger, in this crazy day and age - I wish this happened more often.

I had one like that myself yesterday. Sun, cool breeze and a line hitin the water. No fish but the weather, chattin with an old friend and just being outside was a life saver. I think the fishing community in general is viewed as a friendly bunch, something about it just adds up to good people. Whens the last time you heard about the crazy fisherman that went nutz and shot the clerk at the baitshop grin.gif! I am new on this site and reading the stories and comments on here for just a few days, I feal like I've known everybody for years. Cant wait for open water!!!!!!!!!!

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
