Hi Swampbuck,

I wish you & Chad were fishing also...I saw Chad a couple weeks ago, he & I think 3 others were staying at his Grandma's & Grandpa's, and said they were going to fish hard for the next week. Had 2 nice triton boats.

Sincerely,

Fishmeister

Great event for the whole family. Unfortunately, I can't fish this year due to injury. I'll be coming up anyway to see friends and watch the weigh-in with my kids. I highly encourage anybody that is on the fence about checking this event out to give it a try. Lots of fun for the whole family! The kids will see some nice fish and probably end up with some candy and fishing related freebies!

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?! 
    • eyeguy 54
      yes indeed, its fun when they fight back. lol .  the cgi's got a workout! I put a jar of the secret bait in my red box as soon as I got home.     BWAAAAA HAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ! ! ! 
    • leech~~
