This says Norway is the same. It also shows Games is fine for

recreation and eating fish undetermined. They are connected?

This also says Mille Lacs fish unfit to eat, but okay to recreation on the lake.

It also shows that green is too polluted to eat fish out of the Minnesota DNR has the guidelines for fish consumption posted on the lake finder portion of their website refer to that for consuming fish!

The fish in this lake have not been tested. Since none of Minnesota’s lakes tested so far have proven safe, you should follow Department of Health Guidelines for consuming fish from this or any other Minnesota lake.

Every lake in minnesota will show up as either untested or unsafe for eating fish.

Everyone quit fishing! If you read the fish consumption advisories on the DNR web site they have guidlines for children and women of child bearing age to see how much they can eat. The DNR has info on almost all lakes. You also have to look at the source of the info. They have an agenda.

"You also have to look at the source of the info. They have an agenda."

An agenda? The DNR? You mean cleaning up our lakes? HAHAHA! What a foolish statement. That pesky DNR! How dare they show concern for water quality. I suppose they are just saying there is mercury & phosphorus in the water to ensure that they have jobs in the future? That seems to be the way to denigrate anything relating to science these days. How about this- When are we going to do something about the agricultural drainge that flows right into Diamond? Drive around that lake, it is gross how many fields are tiled right into the inlets. From the DNR website:

"Residential development has occurred throughout the entire shoreline area with the exception of the southeast portion of Dogfish Bay. Agricultural row crop drainage into the lake occurs via several inlets/tiles from various locations throughout the lake.

Long term water quality and clarity trends of Diamond indicate an increasingly degraded system."

I would say that report is accurate. I've seen cows in the lake in the past. I've been stuck on mats of weeds out there as well. But if that is what you find appealing- an overgrown weed and mud pit- then by all means, you go enjoy it. I think your comment was irresponsible and uneducated.

It's not the DNR's site. He said they had an agenda, he didn't say it was a bad agenda. Cool off.

I agree with this report. DO NOT EAT the swordfish, shark, or the muskies, in green??? I would love itif swordfish and sharks did swim in green. Report must be from PETA, and not the good like People Eating Tasty Animals

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
