Hey, my brothers and I are taking our 2nd annual fishing trip up to the big lake and we are kinda just going out finding spots to try out there. We are staying on birch point right out from big bay. We are just wondering what are some other close areas for walleyes?? Another question is we never fished northern or bass up there, what works best and some good areas to go scope out. Anything will be greatly appreciated.

Huskie0302,

Welcome to the Vermilion Forum!

Birch Point is a great central spot to work out of! There are great spots in both directions from you.

Fish the fast breaks into deep water during the day with lindys or jigs baited with minnows or leeches.

I have been finding walleyes on the 17' to 26' flats the past couple of days also.

Cliff-

We have fished the edges of strawberry island out on the breaks, and northeast of of jackrabbit island, you think those should be some good spots to hit again? Aslo I know your a great walleye fisherman but do you know any good places to try to hook into some bass and northern?? Any suggestions to use to catch them also?? thanks for the info Cliff!!

Will,

There are walleyes in both of the spots you mentioned! grin.gif

Try Greenwood Bay, Stuntz Bay, and any other shallow weedy bay for pike. Spinnerbaits in white, black and chartuse usually work for me when I do try for pike. Also weedless spoons should work well.

The smallmouth will be relating to rocks and docks along the shoreline. Expreriment with different types of lures until you figure out which ones that they like best.

We always catch a lot of pike and bass by accident around Bystrom Bay as well.

We were at Daisy Bay all last weekend and there were a lot of smallies off the dock.

Hey just curious whats all happening up on the east end? We are going to be leaving Wed. afternoon. Are they still deep? Or we better off starting shallow and working deeper?? Any other reports on bass or northern? Good luck fishing to all you guys this week, and thanks for all the advice that you provided to help a few rookies out!!!!

Walleyes are being caught at all depths depending upon time of day and type of presentation.

There is a good bass bite according to the people that I have been talking to. They have even been getting a few on top water plugs! shocked.gif

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      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.

      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!
