1/8 - 1/9 South End report

1 post in this topic

Seven of us fished out of JR's access on the 8th and 9th. The road was good with a couple of cracks closer to shore but nothing to bad. Ice was approximately 18 to 20". We fished some rough ice about 2 miles from the entrance. Fishing was slow but we managed to pick up enough eaters to have a good meal and a few to take home. The best bite was right after dusk and then from 12 to 2 am. Glow red seemed to be the trick. About half the fish we caught were in the slot 18-22". We did not pick up any Crappies though. Thanks to Chad B. for the nice accommodations.

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
