Vermillion Crappies

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

I fish the vermillion alot in the summer and do well on crappies. When do they start getting active in the river? I was thinking of fishing it the 1st weekend of april when the river is high and flooding the wood and timber. Will the big ones be gearing up for spawning by then?

they are always there. not always easy to get to bite though. I think they travel a lot in that river. Very good all around fishing river. very very fun. can be very very very frustrating though.

As of now I think my only concern is the water levels. I've been to the hastings access when water levels have completely flooded the lot. I'd like the water to be high, but definitely not that high.

There's definitely some big slabs in there. My biggest last year was about 1.5 pounds. The railroad bridge downstream from the hastings access used to be good until they replaced the old wood pillers with new metal ones. Otherwise I always concentrate on the flooded timber or fallen down trees.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
