Tire Chains

5 posts in this topic

I'm thinkin' it may be prudent to have a set of 4 on my Blazer this year. Any suggestions as to brand and/or configuration? When I was a kid, we had chains in every trunk. Now, the only set I have is for my Model A.

Tire chains are great to get a guy out of pinch but for on ice travel they will get you in trouble fast. You can go like heck until you high center and the wheels dig perfect little round holes in the ice FAST, and then you are really stuck in the wheel chocks you just made.

For cruising around in the winter or when the lake turns glare ice a V-bar tire chain hooks up like no other.

OK. I'm just wanting to get my tail out of a jam, should the need arise.

Look at the V bar style with good cam-over hooks, they go on much nicer when your fingers are froze.

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
