I was out there Friday evening and Saturday. There was 8.5

inches where I fished. It was good, but there were some

slushy spots. A wheeler, ok, but trucks, you have to be crazy. The fishing wasn't fast and furious either.

Is anyone having any luck out there? I was out most of the afternoon and evening on Saturday without any luck. I'd just like to know if I'm the only one or just doing something wrong. Thanks

Fished up on Norway on the 7th and 8th of Dec. Friday night we walked out there, bout 2 hours worth of walkin. Once we got out there found anywhere from 8-12" of ice. With all the ATV's and sleepers out there we decided to drive out on Saturday and it was fine. Although we had a little 4 cylinder pickup that doesn't weigh a hair more than a ATV sleeper combo. Got alot of criticism for it but was alot better than walking 2 hours both ways! Fishing was descent with only about a 1 1/2 hour time slot, 4:30-6:00pm. Nothing before and nothing after. Caught everything from 6-10" eyes, smaller sunnies, a couple descent largemouths and even a few smaller crappies. Nothing with size, but definitely made our time worth it.

There is a pretty big village that has developed on Norway. The fishing has since slowed way down. You can still catch a few crappies and walleyes but they are very small and you have to work pretty hard to get those even. I'm moving my house to a different lake today. I get claustrophobic with that many houses that close to me. grin.gif

Fished Norway yesterday. Fish were hard to come by. Managed a 26" pike on a tip-up and a 21" walleye on a jig and fathead combo. Fished next to others we knew. They were catching a few smaller eyes. Ice thickness varied greatly. Where we were it was 14 inches a hundred yards away less then 10. So be careful. People were driving full sized trucks out though. Fished in 10.7 feet of water.

sure is Jesse! I had an account on here back in high school but its been quite a few years since I've used this, so I had started up a new one. Yeah, Jordan and I stopped up to the Green Mill to see ya after fishin, but they said you hadn't worked there in a couple of months. Maybe we'll have to get together and go fishing sometime.

Hey Jesse, Jordan and I are heading up tomorrow morning to fish up there somewhere. Haven't exactly figured out for sure where we're going to try. Maybe Long, Florida or somewhere else. Hoping to be set up a little after one. You'll have to give us a call if you plan on doing any fishing tomorrow or just wanna know what's up with fishin. Either way we'll be out there. Give us a call. 507-430-0501

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
