My brother is out on Franklin right now. He said theres a good 7" of ice, but your holes flood pretty quick though. He said there isn't very much slush under the snow.

As my brother pointed out the ice is a good seven inches with alot of snow on top, we weren't off shore to far though. When we were leaving a guy, on a 4-wheeler asked how much ice so we told him. He drove right out into the middle of the lake without stopping and checking the ice out there but he made it 500 yards out. He was more trusting of the ice than I was.

I've been out fishing on Lizzie once.. two years ago.. The ice looked alright and there was a few people out there... there was like a foot of ice but it was flooding and some areas were only 4-5 inches and those areas would flood like crazy.... be carefull out there.....I have no Idea how much ice is out there.. but It's prolly not the safest yet.. I would give it awhile... I would rather fish other lakes that aren't questionable like this one.... but then again I'm not a brave as some are on some lakes... good luck

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.

      They eat little bitty stuff.   But them and whitefish should be catchable in summer.  They are eating after all.
