If you are spearing let us know what the conditions are like. I have talked to a few people who have been out - they all say the water clarity is really bad. Looking for a lake that has clear water.

Cool, hopefully you'll get rid of some of those snakes in there! That lake has become over-run with small northerns......IMO it needs a slot limit.

The first day out is in the books.There is 8inches of solid ice under a foot of snow. I punched three holes in 15 feet with minimal flooding. Also punched a hole in 9 feet for the spear house with moderate flooding. Will have to let that area refreeze then set the house.Kept one slimer 3-5 lb and 6 sunnies for the first meal. Threw back 4 snakes and 4 small crappies.Nobody on Lizzie or Franklin. One perm on Crystal far east side.My plan is to use portables for now and not be in a big hurry to get the big house out yet.We did not need this snow this early so give Mother Nature some time and things will come around.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
