Being I will be in SD Pheasant hunting in Mid December, I will vote for December 17th. Not just because I won't be around the week before that, but it is usually really cold at my house after I return from a longer hunting or fishing excursion!!! hehehehehe

The colder the better, eh?

Dude, I set up the voyager in the garage the other day, roped over the heater, and sat in it hanging out for a while. Mrs boilerguy thinks I have a couple of screws loose.

Well as far a standing on the ice the first day for that was Nov. 10th! I was shooting ducks and geese off the ice last Saturday. As far as fishing goes i'm thinking the 12/8 to 12/15 range hopefully it's sooner but that's when I was out last year according to my calendar and if memory serves me you were there with me Bill.

I do believe you're correct. I'm hoping to hit a couple 10 acre ponds in NW IA before I go anywhere. The history of those two during first ice is pretty impressive. You may be able to tag along as long as you don't have to babysit or "work". I'll get ahold of you when the time comes as for now im off to do a couple mods on my house and clean a few birds.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
