Hey All. I've been visiting this site for five years now and decided to finally join in! I've always found the posts and replies here to be extremely informative and in many cases humorous. I only make it up to the Lake one or two weeks a year and this is a great place to get a fix when I need one. Thanks to all who have made a sometimes brow beating city life a little more relaxing.

Now that I'm in I need to ask a quick question. We've been comming up from Chicago the first or second week in June and occasionally in September for the last 25 years. This year we are switching it up and comming The week of August 12th to give the kids a better shot a swimming and play'n in the water without freezing off the unmentionables.

What kind of fishing action can I expect? I've been up in August before and seemed to hit the Bass on the nose but it's been awhile since I've been up this late in the year.

Any info would be helpful. Thanks in advance. I hope I can add some of my limited knowledge when I get the chance! cool.gif

WhatsBiten,

Welcome to the Vermilion Forum! smile.gif

August is a great time on Vermilion!

The walleye bite can be a little tough for some, but are still very catchable! grin.gif

      I had a great weekend the weather was decent and fishing was good. I caught 5 walleyes 21"-25", 4 northerns largest was 32" and a 17 largemouth opening day. 2 more walleyes, 2 crappies 2 northerns on Sunday all on jig and minnows.

      We had a good opener as well we could have kept limits opening day, but just kept enough for a fish fry. Then Sunday had our little friendly tourney and everyone had a pretty good day. Pulling cranks and jigs n minnows caught fish.

      Had a great opening weekend. Son and I boated 51 walleye between Saturday and Sunday. Plenty of small stuff but no problem getting some nice keepers. This is a pic of the best weekend fish for us.

      I was on Rice this weekend also. Seen boat lifts with water up to the canopy. I was the only one to catch a fish out of the hole campground It was about a 6" crappie.

      We had a pretty good weekend. There were two couples and we limited out both Saturday and Sunday. The eyes we kept were all 15-17”.  We caught many 10-14” eyes and one 26” which was returned to the water immediately. All on a variety of jigs in 18-35’ of water. As usual the women out fished both of us😀

      Wrong area, sorry.

      I will second the advice on watching out for floating debris.  We saw a lot of floating logs and deck sections this weekend.  Also, most hazard and navigation buoys were not out yet.  I wonder how many lower units and props were destroyed this weekend?  It would be dicey if you don't know the lake.

      I will admit it.  Zero walleyes in two days of fishing.  We fished shallow and deep and marked a lot of fish in 16-20' and had a few weak bites.  A friend of mine caught 6 walleyes on Sunday but worked hard for them and he has fished the lake his entire life.  Got a few crappies in Black Bay.  I was shocked at how few boats were out, definitely a reflection of late ice out and how few docks are in because of the high water.  My fishing partner drove back to the TC on Sunday night and traffic was surprisingly light.  I'm guessing late ice out discouraged a lot of fishermen from coming north.  We need some warm dry weather.
