Has anyone been fishin this lake. I fished it a couple of times this summer and it seemed like a cool lake. I did not catch and skies but caught about a dozen 3Lbs norts. I was just wonderin what the lake was all about or if a guy could catch muskies all over the snake river?

They are there. North point is good and around the fishing pier on the snake river by the boat launch. Also by the boat launch and fishing pier there are some sturgeon to be had.

How big do the sturgeon run. I have caught hundreds of them when I was younger on the MN river but that breed toped out at about 5Lbs or so. I think they were shovel nose but I could be way off. Anyways thanks for the info I will probably give it another whirl next fall or during the week in the summer.

I don't know how big they are in there. I just get the hearsay from my uncles and grandparents that live on Cross. I personally have never caught one. I would assume they are not Croix, 'sippi sized, but I would imagine they arn't tiny either.

Check out the DNR site below, they caught 3 in their survey. But with as long as that lake it, who knows were they are netting from.

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?!
