Heading up to Spring Bay Resorts on the west side of Vermilion on the 16th and we have never fished the lake but looking for any lake information or tips to make it a fun trip.
How's ice condition so far on the lake?
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.
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.
