Cool! Got mine out on Monday. I was trying to wait a minimum of two weeks but may have to check this weekend when I'm in the area.

You bet! Haven't seen one this year yet but most years this time of the year during turkey hunting I see several. Couple years ago we saw a dandy that was already past the brow tines with some dandy bases during 5th season which would correspond to this Wed.

I've had my camera out all spring, and I could first start to see antler growth around April 15-20th. Right now antlers are maybe 2-3" in length. I'm planning to keep my camera in the same spot all summer to keep tabs on a certain buck that i hope made it through the winter.

      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
