Might be going at midnight, what to do???

7 posts in this topic

I am thinking of heading out way before daylight on opener mainly cause I got the bug! I've never really fished in the way early dawn (2 am or so) before so what would be the best tactic? Bobbers, cranks???

Do you have a GPS and the Lakemaster chip? If you do, you already have a leg up. I would also get a good Spotlight to see those buoys on your way out. I think you can do anything. I would try cranks and or bobbers. Keep it between 3-9ft. Just my thoughts, but I would be flexible. If you find a pattern with cranks, go back and bobber fish some of those areas.

I would fish Agate Reef with bobbers 9-12 ft. If nothing doing, get out the Cranks grin.gif Around 7:00 am hit Fischer's around 18 ft. Have done well there the last two years. cool.gif

The Sand should be good as well.

I am definatly going to be crankin. it is 100 times easier than rigging at night and bobber fishing can get pretty boring in the dead of the night. you need that rumble of the motor behind you to keep you awake. cool.gif

      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
