Hey Dude,

Just got off Shag with the snowmobile...and just as we expected- Bad News. That snow is pretty deep out there and there is alot of water and slush. Pretty nasty looking slush too! Its real yellow colored and just a sloppy mess. There are alot of areas that the water has soaked all the way through to the top of the snow layer and that stuff is really black looking. I think you are right in that its going to be a snowmobile travel season. We are going to have to come up with a route and pack some trails down to go after those trout.

Just as I figured, but really hoped to be wrong! frown.gif

Talked to Denny at Smitty's on Snowbank this afternoon.

6 inches of ice (before this stuff) in the bay, didn't dare trying to go out on the lake further.

He doesn't know if they will be able to have the houses out by the opener, or at all trout season.

Whole lotta slush!!

Yeah, that doesn't sound good. I don't think Dave D. is going to be putting his house out there next week, either. Temps don't look good for the next 7 days for freezing anything. The holes in my fish house weren't even frozen after 5 days!!

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
