Vermilion pike fishing

5 posts in this topic

I am heading to vermilion the first week of July and plan to spend alot of time fishing for pike. Can anyone give me some advice on what types of lures to use? I want to stock the tacklebox ahead of time.

Spoons, Spinnerbaits,Topwater Frogs are a few that have worked for me. Good Luck!

If you are looking for action I would get a bunch of white spinnerbaits with white 4" trailers and pound the shallower bays. If you are looking for quality over quantity I would get some larger x-raps or some depth raiders and work deeper humps, mainlake islands, and points that extend into deeper water.

The big V is a great lake for big pike. Most of mine come "incidentally" while I'm fishing for muskies. They're a great bonus!

My faves are big spinnerbaits like the rad dog or grinder. Medium to large bucktails (or silicone or flashabou). Topwaters...like the top raider. And crankbaits... the Jake is my favorite.

Big pike love weeds. And they love rocks. Vermilion has lots of both. Find them in combo and hold on.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
