Where to fish . . .

5 posts in this topic

We are new in the Sandstone/Hinckley area and would like some information on pan fishing lakes. Shore fishing at this time, or where to rent a boat. Doesn't have to be real close, just close enough. grin.gif I looked under sponsers for this area and couldn't find any. Anyone???

I would try Fish Lake. It is about 1/4 mile west of Finlayson on Hwy. 18. There are a lot of areas to shore fish with a chance of catching some panfish.

Try the snake river just west of pine city at pokegama lake. There's some good shorefishing spots at the bridge. You'll catch lot's of nice sunfish. You might have a chance at largemouths and northerns too. If you use nightcrawlers you can expect to catch lot's of sheephead, maybe a bonus catfish too. It's a nice spot, on weekends ther's alot of boat traffic going back and fourth under the bridge though.

      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
