Anyone know of a good ice fishing lake near vermilion? Perhaps something with a hot panfish bite.

Is Pelican Lake close enough to Vermilion?  Prolly the best panfish around the area.

There tons of little fish lakes around that area. Just a quick search and you can find them.

Pelican is a drive.

Maybe 25 miles from cook so maybe 40 from tower.

Have to agree Pelican would be my choice for panfish, top notch pannie lake with some quality in it.

There are so many little untapped panfish lakes up there. I know pelican has some big fish but it gets much more pressure than the little lakes. It worth the time to use the dnr lake finder to see if lakes have gills and crappies in them. I spent 5 years in that area and caught plenty of big crappies and trophy sized gills. I never once went to pelican lake or elephant. I never was skunked when ice fishing for panfish up there.

Seems like it could be good for gills.  No crappies in it though.  Interesting comments about the depth being greatest by shore.  It’s fun reading up on some new lakes.

Had a fun trip on Elephant.   Not much pressure when we fished it.  Nice crappies.

      Hey all,
      The Lindner’s recently put up an episode of Al and Billy Rosner fishing Vermilion last October:
       
      I thought it was a good episode and it was really cool seeing such great anglers taking on Vermilion. I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about open water but this show got me to thinking. Has anyone here on the forum successfully targeted shallow, weed-oriented walleyes?? The video proves it can be done, but it’s just not a pattern you hear much about.
      Thanks!

      I used to fish a small lake just north of Malmo on Milla Lacs at a town called Glen.  The Lake was called Clear Lake.  I have not fished it in quite some time and wondered if anyone has any information on it.  (Ice conditions, whats biting, etc.)
      I moved to St. Cloud a few years ago but thought it might be nice to ice fish the lake this winter.  I used to catch some nice stringers of perch, crappies, and sunfish.  
      Can anyone tell me if they are still selling bait at the Gas Station/RestaurantStore at Malmo?
      Any info would be appreciated.
