remember when we used to be able to put an old car on the ice and buy tickets for a prize to see who would be closest on timing,for when it would fall thru

I just hope we get some good spring moisture to get the lakes and rivers up

Prime we would push a boulder out each year,in what we thought was the same spot(no GPS then),eventually the towns people would put in 2 bucks each at the local wattering hole,winner take all!It started with me and one neighbor thinkin bout makin a fishin reef.Been back and now with sonar bout a 30 ft area in 9 ft of water with barron bottom a bunch of rocks.20 years of puttin them out.BIG ones used a D-4 cat to get em 1/2 way out then a plow vechile.Decent fishin area now. grin.gif

Sparcebag, that is a good idea but I have to add its illegal to put material into the lake. I'm just passing it on and don't want you to get into trouble. If you were to take it out each year I'm sure it'd be fine but just becareful.

I was just in Florida and man that open water looked good. Can't wait for the ice to go though. I want to see if my near shore modifications bring in some spawners (yeah it was illegal, but who cares if you steal some cattails and bullrushes from down the shore and plant them on yours. Oh, and I forgot the lily pads too).

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
