Been on the lake for a couple of weeks, the bass have been really active in cover situations. Fishing the west end, hitting every dock with a wacky worm or drop shot worm getting either multiple bass or no bass from a dock. Bluegill have been typically in the shallow weeds (4-6 feet) sorting thru the smaller ones to keep eaters but lots of activity. Crappie have been spotty but have has some luck in current areas with down trees and shallow (5-6 feet). Walleyes and Northerns have been active at the outside weedlines, this year the weeds are running down to 16'. Been a great two weeks. Colors have changed much in years; white, chartreuse, yellow for spinner baits and clacker baits. Fro crappie small road runners and beetle spins in white, pink, or red. Bass worms in green w/red flake are best.

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?

Thanks

Looking to come up mid-June with two friends. Probably stay somewhere around the casino area. Any decent spots around the middle part of the lake for walleye and perch? Not sure if the fish will be in there "summer spots" yet or if they are still in transition then. I.e. Don't want to bring boards and all that if jigging structure or the dam will be the ticket. Message if you prefer. Thanks!

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.
