Has anyone been out on Harriet or Calhoun yet? Just curious to see how think the ice is out there.

Thanks for the report!

Saw a shack out on the east side of Calhoun 2 nights ago. Looked to be out a little ways. Haven't checked the ice personally.

Let us know on the ice thickness/quality. I know we are anxious for an ice report.

Thanks guys for the reports. It sounds like I will be sticking around the North side of town this weekend for some pike. We'll see though.

If we get crazy and head into the City, I will post ice quality on Monday. Thanks again.

I was out on Calhoun last night. There is 4" of ice under the snow cover and 7" everywhere else. I'd say the lake is 50% snow covered but only an inch or two deep and hard pack. Lots of sounds of cracking and ice making!

I am thinking of heading to Harriet tomorrow night (friday), has anyone been out there lately and can provide me an ice report? I figure there is more than enough to safely fish, but I would really like some first hand opinions. Thanks.

I was out on the South West part of the lake last Thursday and there was about 7-8" of ice at that time. I had been out a week before that on 4-5" (less under the snow). I checked under some snow covered spots last week and there was plenty of ice there as well.

      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!
