Last three days the crappie have been very easy to catch with a number of them being springtime slabs (12"-14"). The unusual part is we're getting them in shallow weeds(5'-7') on slip bobbers with a chunk of nightcrawler. No sign walleyes on this end of Vermilion the past few weeks.

We've been fishing the west end of Vermilion, predominately Norwegian Bay and Niles Bay. The largemouth have been amazing, catching 15-20 a day on frogs fishing the pencil weeds and thick weeds. Smallies have been hitting rattletraps in 10' to 15' FOW. A bonus has been the crappie biting in shallow weed beds when we had the kids bluegill fishing.

Could someone recommend low priced resorts on Vermilion for a group of fishermen.

It all depends on where you will he on yhe lake, west end, (Cook end) or east end, (Tower end), or somewhere in between. I suspect the walleyes to he deep this timd of year during the day. I use a modified lindy type rig with 2 and even 3 ounce wire weights sliding on the main line with crawlers. Sometimes a small dpinner is needed. 40 feet is my limig using this set up on the east end in Big Bay. Neighbors use downriggers and crankbaits 40 feet or more.

I don't know Frazier Bay, only Big Bay. The mayfly hatch should long be over and air/water temps elevated. Early morning and late evenings we'll troll crankbaits along shore.

Hope the fishing is not as tough as getting a little advice is, just want to show the kids a good time.

Is there anybody that can share a little info?

Coming up to Vermilion July 20th for a week from Green Bay. Meeting two brother in-laws from the twin cities for a week of father and son fishing before the kids head back to college. Looking for some tips/info on how to target walleyes this time of year on Lake Vermilion. Don't need GPS cords. just some help on what type of areas to target, baits, presentations, depths... Will be staying in the Frazer Bay area on the south shore and would love to end the week with a fish fry. If the walleyes are slow we would love to get a few nice perch. Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks, Ron
