2 posts in this topic

I know this isnt the red lake post. Was up there tues and today. Gale force winds all day yesterday. Didnt have boat, so went to public access on tamarac river and fished from dock. Fathead on plain hook with bobber. Caught wally after wally from 5-8pm. All were 18-20". Some monster sheepshead also.It was a blast. Some boats were going out there in that 40mph wind but were soon back. It looked brutal

Last year when we got blown off the big water, we fished the river. we caught 80% of our fish to the left of the dock,where you land the boats. There was a 9ft hole, probably from boats starting their engine..All were 18-24inches

Anyways, everyone should go to Red Lake at least one time a year...Fun Stuff

      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
