Ok guys and gal's i wish i could have some better news for you but the bite was just not going for us.It wasnt because we didnt see fish because we seen some big eye's on camera but swim right up to your offering and when i say offering i mean about every rattle jig,every forage minnow,pimple ext,ext we tryed just wasnt working.Yes we had all the baits to ero,waxie,minnows even shrimp none of wich worked any better.The fish seem to be active early morning 6am-10am lots of big eye's swiming that we seem on cam then late 3:30pm-5:30 for us. One thing i never ever had happen to me is we never got one rattle reel go in 3 days a first for me on the pond.We did get a few keepers 3 eyes 16-19 4 perch 9-12. but man we had fun and thats whats its all about. I met Jay a very nice guy he is and yes he does have some nice houses to rent i would do it again from him anytime thanks Jay keep it up a class place you run.In closing i have to say there are fish out there to get them to bite is the challange to see them on cam is awesome but i think i would go else where to fish this ice year because the pond has millions and millions of small perch in it just dope a cam you'll see .Happy fishing to all and i hope come opener this all changes or you are in for a ruff summer up there. cool.gif

No need to be sorry for me LoL just kidding but man its hard to see them big eyes swim up to your bait look at it for what seems forever then just swim away one after another makes for a tuff but yet fun day atleast you know you can jig them up.Im heading to LOTW in Feb. will be given pond another try on the way back from there.

Thanks for the report. Wish things could have gone better for you on your trip. At least you have a camera and were able to see those big eyes. That's got to count towards something, right?

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
