    I don't get up to Pontiac often, but my gf's parents live near there and so I've fished the Vermillion a couple of times. Only problem is I've only found one spot that seems to produce fish. It's in that park next to the prison, just downstream from the foot bridge. Are there any other places to fish up there?

    astuztman,
    i know the area you're talking about.. not much luck there since we've not had much rain.. i go to a place called huminston woods, where the little vermillion goes thru, and have had some luck just wading it and going downstream for the deep holes...
