Southmetro,

Have only been out once form shore this year. Had a very good sized cat on by Lillydale, but it got hung up in fallin timber.

Going to Mpls or St paul from shore this weekend. I spent the last month on boat and getting ready to do some hardcore shore fishing. Nothing beets sitting back and a large group of buddies with our polls in line at shore. Maybe a campfire and some good food. Plus coming down from north and my gas guzzler boat motor, shore fishing is a little cheaper and less setup and take down time. Easy!

Mid July my brother-in law and his buddies set up a all day carp trip on a Sat... It is know as the "Carp Classic". I from shore in Lillydale park. Years ago, we drew a rather large crowd. In past years, the crowd has slimmed down. It sure is still fun. Early morning to late evening carp fest.

Well, I hope to have a story or two from this weekend. Will report when I do. Good luck!

      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
