I have never trusted the narrows. When I ice fish this lake, I will go to the north landing to drive out onto that east side of the lake and if I fish the west side, I go out of the Westwood landing. That has always seemed to be the safest way to travel on the two sides of this lake. I have seen open water by the narrows in the middle of the winter.

Be safe and use the other landings.

I was out there a few weeks ago and there was plenty of ice. 20" at least where I was drilling and I was fishing the narrows. Nothing there so we moved onward. You will see a trail of where the trucks cross the narrows. It will be on the left side, but then again I have seen people drive right over the narrows and also on the right side.

I would for no money drive my vechile through the narrows at any time of the winter ice season. Way to many times have I seen ice solid one day and a few later the geese were swimming in that same spot.

Yes, it is a dangerous spot.

I'm heading out there for the first time today myself (for winter fishing), great info guys! Any heads up on where they're biting? I usually head to Duck for the consistant bite but with no electronics and a hand auger it makes it pretty hard to drill, check and move. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

The "mouth" into Baker's Bay just E of Squirrel's Nest Point is a good area to look as is the area out in front of Grassy Island.

Good luck.

doughnut with no electronics you might be ok to go back to the county park they are getting sunnies and it is shallow, should be easier without flasher in that shallow water

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
