fishualik, thanks for the info. do you think a person could see in 7-8 ft of water? you can take 9 slimers out of there that would good for pickling. want to angle for whatever bites also. going over with 3-4 people.

Yeah, you could prolly see down about 5-6 ft. If you wanna get a bunch I would think bowstring would be a good lake. I'd start on the south side of the lake by cow bay. Don't forget about the huge crappies in there, too. It's no secret. They can be tough to find, but it can be great once ya get on 'em!

      Thanks, I read that crayfish in Vermillion have high levels of mercury and other toxins. Have you heard of this?

      Our ice will last up here, I'll bet anything there will be people driving out there this evening. We had 22" of ice yesterday and we had a ton of snow/slush on top of the ice as of yesterday so I'm assuming it will be draining through today and tomorrow and then a cool down. I'm not putting away my gear yet up here.
