norwall, Thief Lake was ok for the opener(so says my brother-in-law) water was higher but the weeds were thicker than carpet!! He pulled off his motor and pushpoled out..He went out the north side. Another friend went out the Moose river landing. Every thing was fine til they hit the lake. Lots of mud and Lots of weeds!! Bring your waders and a good pushpole..,.Good Luck!!

We were on Thief last Wednesday. Old Guide was right on--don't leave the push pole home. The lake is up a few inches from last years super-low condition but below normal. But the surface weeds really are thick. We scratched out 6 but didn't see much flying. Should get better with the next front.

Good luck.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
