The Ice Is Getting Darker

3 posts in this topic

Looking out over the lake this morning after the thunder storms that rolled through last night. The lake has gotten consideribly darker and there is alot more open water along the shore line. With temps going to be in the high 50's and low 60's its only going to be a matter of days now. Either Paul or I will keep everyone up to date.

I will also have a report on available boat launches for the opener for everyone. I know that alot of the public accesses are going to be way too shallow for boat launching.

Fish On!!!

Sounds like that ice might stack up on 169 w/ a good wind. I don't mind being stuck at the lake for road closure. Thanx for the heads up, can't wait much longer to get on the pond again.

Thanks for Posting the Access information. My guess is that the Public Access by Malmo will be pretty shallow for Opener.

      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
