I'm going to be fishing the lake for the first time May 14-18,staying at the Wolf Bay Lodge. I mostly target walleyes but fish crappies,
northern, bass. I would like info on walleye spots to try on west part
of the lake. Will fish eastern part or lake also but have some limitations with 16' Lund Explorer and 40horse Merc. I have the Fishing Hot Spots map and the spots they tell
you about. The FHS map seems to indicate the western side of the west
basin and the eastern basin are where walleyes are found more often. Is this generally true? Will really appreciate any help people familiar
with lake can give me. Will be following opener reports too. Thanks

Hey merledaddy,

Welcome to My Fishing Pals. Glad to have you aboard!

I moved your post to the Reports forum because it is about a geographic spot. I hope you don't mind...

I don't mind but I would like to change the post heading to Lake
Vermillion Help. Is that possible? Seems like it may attract the right
attention, since I'm not really reporting anything. When I go to edit
the discussion topic does not come up.

Hi merledaddy, Welcome to My Fishing Pals,I always had good luck fishing around gold island.The east side of the island has some nice bottom for dragging some lindy rigs around.If you've ever been to lake vermillion you know those kinds of areas are few and far between.I wonder if the ice is even off the lake yet.I don't think they will be very far from their spawning areas at that time.Try fishing around inlets also.(current)

Don't fish the western part very much, but one rule to stand by on the eastern side is to look to areas that are adjacent to bays/spawning areas. A lot of times there is also a deep jig bite going on as well as the shallow bite. Look for areas near productive bays that break very sharply into about 30-35" of water (you will see these on your map). Usually the fish are laying right at the bottom of the sharp break. Watch your screen for transition zones as well. Jig/minnow, lindy, or even spinners or raps can also be utilized for the shallow bite. Don't be afraid to break away from the pack and find your own fish. On a lake this size, not hard to find your own pod of fish. And, by the way, I believe the lake is ice free as of yesterday.

Do not be afraid to fish shallow on the big V in May and June.
Stick baits would be a good choice Tiger and Gold. Try to find rock piles near deep water (40+ )and go with a bobber and leech.
The big V is such an awsome lake. I might not make it up there for the 1st time in 7 yrs. Also- there seems to always be a good mid day bite on this lake( 11:30 to 1:30 ). Depending on your location if you want to fish the east side you might be better off trailering you boat and running down to the ladding at Everett bay. The mouth of everetts bay going out to big bay is a great early season spot.
Good luck.
