Lake Benton

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has been out fishing on Lake Benton lately? Was thinking about going out there on Monday or Tuesday and trying by Stoney Point.

Lonewolf,

I have no idea if anyone is fishing or catching fish on Benton. I drove by Stoney tonight on the way home (Monday night) and noticed some thin ice signs in a few spots north of the east boat launch. Can anyone tell me what these signs area there for? I've heard that someone is netting out bullheads. I just don't want to go out and drop my truck in or anyone else to either.

Other than that I don't know if anyone is catching fish. I'd like to know also. Thanks

fishing4fun,

Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll find a different place to go fishing today. Thanks again.

they were fishing bullheads with nets out on Shaokatan a couple years back and a few years prior to that and they do put the signs in the ice. They have to cut a big enough hole in the ice to pull hoop nets out so it is pretty iffy around those signs. Usually you can see where they cut though. Actually, last Monday or Tuesday I was driving through LB and saw them out in the bay by town pulling nets. So, I know they are out there just not sure if the signs your seeing over there are for bullheads or if its actually bad ice.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
