Drove from the west end to the east end on Shamineau and never found less than 36-40" of ice. My auger was right to the handles, so be sure to bring an extension.

2 weeks ago 27" on alex and 23" on fish trap. You should, and most are, be able to go anywhere you want.

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
