Lake Hanska

6 posts in this topic

Did anyone fish this lake last year? Any luck? I just looked at the DNR website to see if it had any structure, but there was not a map? does the lake have any structure, I am assuming not, but don't want to assume anything.

Lots and Lots of structure, its a really fun and challenging lake to fish, but if your driving down from Minnapolis I'd go someplace else, to a newbie the lake can be kind of intimidating, its about 8 miles long, narrow and full of dredge channels.

The structure is plentiful but it is also very small for the most part, most things aren't worth fishing more than 5 or 10 mineuts. Look shallow first if you go.

We are staying at the Park there, so I am going to give it a shot. Thanks for the information. Is there any part of the lake you would target?

Will you have a boat?

If so then any place in the main basin and around the point can be good, also the next cattail point up from the park.

If you don't have a boat, the channel around the park is littered with rocks and walleyes, jigs or rapala's.

shoot me an email if you want one more spot, nick_domeier77@hotmail.com

Right in front of the channel mouth, casting cranks over the rocks.

Otherwise head down to the ditch, not all the walleyes were fished out.

      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
