Hey there Lunker. I am new to HSO I see you are also. I live just 4 miles from Rocky's (to the west}. It is a great place bullhead fry er' Fri nite. Steve is going to shut the doors on Oct 1;too bad. I am wondering where do you fish when you come here what do you fish for? Just curious. I don't seem to catch many fish myself but I can offer tips of where to go. /that's life though/. The ice should be off the west arm by mid week lets go get them crapps.THANKS

Sad that Ole Rockie's is closing. I still have a Brother an Sis that go there. I stay at the Galaxy now. Nice place!

We fish for just about everything. If I'm not fishin Star, I like to fish Round Lake just down the road from Rockies. Nice Crappie, and some Big Gills! The place is also good for Bass. I also like West Silent and Elbow. I never do much good on McDonald. Some do. Last year a guy caught a 3 and a half pound Crappie on Star! What a slab! I only wish for Walleye! I am not a good Walleye fisherman!

morelnmusky! , One more thing, I can use all the help I can get! My Dad loved that place and was about the best fisherman I know. He ain't here no more. But his Spirit is with me when I'm there! You are so lucky to live there. If you find some time, stop by the Galaxy Resort at cabin #8 the 3rd week of June. Would like to shoot the Bull and drink a beer with ya! I also will be out this week looking for some of them epicurean delights, called Morels!

      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
