Pre-reports for Memorial Day Weekend

4 posts in this topic

Sounds like the weather may be hit and miss rain with lots of clouds. Maybe it will be like opener and we will end up getting good weather. I was wondering if anyone could give some reports on the local walleye and pike holes.

I read Schara's report on Bowstring two weeks ago and talked to a buddy on Big Sand. Pretty similar. You get them here and there.

Anyone else out? Jason B how's the guiding?

I may try to head west for Upper Red. Weather doesn't look the best for a family trip. Diehards like me fish all the time, but the stragglers (the family) may force me to slow down and hold up in camp.

      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
