Was gonna go to greys bay for some panfish action but sounds like everythings on the small side. Taking my girlfriend out and would like to get on some sunnies and then crappies towards dark. We're lookin to take home a small meal most likely. Any info on other bays to find decent pannies?

Sorry it took so long to answer. Try either Black Lake or Seton it is my home turf. You will see all the holes that people have drilled. On Seton for sunnies just try around the north end you will see all the permanments parked there. I have been using a ant bait with a waxworm no wheight and a pencil shy bit. they have stacked in the whiole water column. I am going out tonight after work. It is Friday look for a red Chevy and a little flip over thats me. I will be on Seton from about 2 PM and on. If anyone else is interested come out and join me grin.gif

If you go when you enter the lake look to the west you will see bunch of permanent houses there is a deep hole there I would try that area for crappies. One of my spots was to the left of that area you will see a channel that runs around the back of the floating bog. I usually drill holes in fron of that channel in about 13 fish for sunnies. really I would drive thru to Seton and try the sunnie fishing there. When it gets near dark maybe move back to Black. I will be out there Sunday we have to move our houses off thwe lake. So I should be there most of the day. If not on Black I might be over at Seton. I drive a red Silverado we will also have a four wheeler out pulling off the houses. i hope to see you out there.

Ill probably start on seton and then move out to black. Brought my girlfriend with me recently to chisago and she had a great time. Got her on some fat gills and some 9-11in crappies after dark. I think she caught the most out of 5 of us and caught the biggest crappie at 12inches

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
