Help me out

3 posts in this topic

I was thinking of hitting the river on Monday. I would be coming over the 94 bridge. I have never fished the river, just been over the bridge and seen all of the boats. Can someone tell me where I should launch my boat at? Is there any free launches anywhere?

How about where to start for some walleyes/crappies. Just looking depth and whether to go up or down after launching my boat. Thanks to all for the replies.

And hey, good fishing

Beanies right off of the highway is a decent launch spot though you got to get there early. Or you can go to the launch south of Beanies in Bayport just take 94 to 95 and go south a little ways you can't miss the launch it's a bit pricey though.

As far as presentation goes and spots, try the channel by the railroad tracks- lots of boats there can't miss it. I'd try jig and minnow you can catch almost anything on that presentation. 15-20 FOW would work good this time of year.

Goodluck, I will be out there this weekend too.

Nice tip Eyedeas, The town of Bayport is north of Beanies however not south, thought I'd clarify that as to avoid angler confusion.

      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
