People are just starting to move out. Main bay has little ice on it still. Sand I believe has more and I heard 10" near pine point. At least that is where the rentals are moving to. I would be careful anywhere on walker bay still.

Be careful,

Talked to a guy today that drove his wheeler out by sand point, walked another 50 feet and put his chisel through with one stab. crazy.gif

Up in that area there is 6" in some spots and 1 1/2 in some spots.

There was a Suburban down on shingabee today. That guy had a death wish... Talked to some spearers that said they were finding anywhere from 9" to a foot down there.

They are driving out by pine point, thats probably where I would go this weekend.

BE CAREFUL

just got back from leech. fishing was slow did manage 24 keeper perch for the three of us and released 29" pike. the ice was not the best a few slush pockets that made things a little interesting. the first spot we fished had 10", we then moved closer to the point and found only 6.5".

but still a fun day on the ice.

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?!
