There is alot of bass that are in this lake. The problem is trying to find them. If you do find them, there going to be nice fish.

I have always had great luck fishing docks on this lake. There is alot of docks that have alot of cover under them, yet, work with drop offs from the docks, which allow the bass to move anywhere around them.

If you can find the fish, you will have a great time. Use alot of dark colors, and very slow presentation.

Granite was a tough lake to fish...our six boat league fished it last night and the best boat had 6 nice bass, nobody else had more than 2...we didnt have any bass but did get into some really nice sunfish. All of the bass that were caught were really nice fish allot of 15+

You must have been coming in when we were going out. We ended up with 13 over 7 inches (that is the league minimum size). They were really aggressive...all fish were released so hopefully we can see some monsters in there next year.

      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
