Was looking for them last night and no luck. Had fun catching gills, smallies, and rock bass though.

Took a friend of mine from work out this evening.The wind was a little harsh for pitching small crappie jigs but we still managed to tear them up pretty good.Sent him home with a nice batch of crappies and caught plenty more to boot that went back in the water.With the wind cranked up it seems the fish drop down a little deeper than in calm conditions.Ive been sticking with jig and crappie tubes,it takes to long to fool around with live bait the way they are hitting right now.Ill be interested to see if the fish change locations after this cool down thats forcast...Good luck out there....

Good report sir!

I was planning on hitting the river tomorrow evening for a bit, might have to give that a try south of the kinnie...

I kinda get bored with walleyes by this time of year anyway, like to wait till the water cools off some more.

Any areas that they are? I usually fish the bluffs, is that a good area for them?

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
