Nobody out there to give you a report....even on weekends only a couple groups and they may not be on this Forum...I've been out to similar sized lakes in same area...last Sunday drove out in my SUV 18" of good ice but with this rain we had last night and still today they are a messy....I'll probably be walking out tomorrow...if I go.

 

I have been surprised with the lack of guys out chasing crappies...I've done better since end of Feb up till now than I did the entire season before that point...and best is yet to come IMO.

Bison was out there two days ago had a good 15-18 inches. Access was heaved as it normally is this time of year. I took my wheeler and trailer and got over it with no problem.

I'm also really surprised about the lack of fishermen out there chasing panfish.  Not sure why but there's been barely anyone out even when I drive around looking at lakes.  Maybe the really warm spell a few weeks back scared a lot of people away??

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
