Miltona for opener

3 posts in this topic

Wondering how deep to fish for walleyes on opener. Never fished Miltona this early in the year. Any ideas would be greatly appreaciated! Good luck to everyone. Thanks in advance.

Not going to be Miltona but a neighboring/similar lake (Ida) this weekend. First thing that comes to my mind is shallow at night. Pull plugs, cast plugs/jigs or slip bobber right up in 10' and less. Other then that all I can say is to try to key in off of the first break of a sand/rubble flat. If there is some new/old weeds around they can attract bait and hence walleyes. Jig and fathead/shiner or live bait rig with shiner or maybe leeches. For back up on opener, I'd have the crappie rods rigged and ready to search them out in the shallows.

      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
