The last two years were so slow, it sucked. I'm not even sure I'm going to hit it at all this year for lakers and its only 15 minutes from my house. I used to drive 3 hours to fish it and now that I live here it seemed to go in the crapper (lakers at least).

If you want to fish lakers I would point your truck north and either go to Ely or the Gunflint Trail. Better yet if time/money will allow further to Canada. Trout Lake seems to be pretty slow these days.

Since graduating college, myself and a few buddies plan an annual trout weekend. Last year we hit Big Trout. We didn't fish it correctly (Definition = we didn't spread out enough.)

We drilled a ton of holes, and fished various depths. We did however manage to catch one trout. It was a 25.5 incher. We are going to hit it again this year in a couple weekends to see if we can improve our luck. I know there are a lot of better lakes way North, but this lake will keep our tradition alive and we don't have to travel far from home.

Last year we drove trucks out, and with all this cold weather, I am sure that the lake has decent ice. I have heard from others however that Trout Lake is known to have sketchy ice all season due to it's depth, so we will be ready to head out with the wheelers and sleds if things don't look right.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
