Troll crank baits along the shore lines at 10-20 fow.....you'll get pike and eyes.

If your in Crane try the west shore line by the green boat house , 100 yards up or down from it . I usually get some Northern while trolling a minnow and gold spinner for Walleye.

Any weeds you can find should hold pike this time of year.

Just got back. found a lot of Northerns on the West side of Crane trolled the creek on the north side of Pine point lodge...Careful it gets shallow in parts. Hit under the docks in the creek and if you get a big one with a yellow and red diamond spoon in its mouth that would be mine! Also in the Namakan narrows we fished the small grassy corners and tagged quite a few. Having several people using the same color lures helped a lot most of the time the first guy got bumped and the 2nd caught the fish. Also in Hammer bay south caugt a lot of larger northern. Good Luck

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
