You may want to change your name to "perchmatt" or "smallcrappiematt" if you go there.

No seriously though, the people who bash that lake are the ones in the groups of 100s of houses- well its really no wonder why they are getting skunked. Too much noise and commotion for good numbers of fish to stick around.

I've fished that lake all my life. In the winter, you're best off to venture on your own away from the masses with a good lake map and gps (Try the areas from the NE corner of the lake to just W of the island on the North side of the lake)

Look for a weedline that tapers into a deeper basin this time of year and set up deeper during the day and work your way to the edge of the weeedline during lowlight periods.

Is you want a shot at getting into some decent fish do what SWMuskeye says and stay away from the crowds. Sorry, didn't mean to bash my hometown lake.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
