Not sure if they are getting any panfish in the channel.. a better bet would be the south end.. but I cant tell you how good the ice is. I ssaw 2 guys out there last friday...not sure how good the ice was though. There is plenty of ice in the channel however, just not sure how many fish they are catching. I would call that baitshop on HWY 8 just out of forest lake.

I received a ticket parking on the side of the road on the south end of the lake late last year.

Yep.. be carefull they have it marked no parking in some areas. Its new last year so I am not exactly sure...

How to get there... If comming from the south, Turn off(right turn) of highway 8 at the golf driving range(dont remember the name of the road.. but its right at that light and driving range. I am pretty sure its the second light. The first light is right at that bait shop that used to be called mikes bait. Follow that road till County Road 83(again right hand turn) If you get to the primary school you missed 83... Then your there.. Chisago will be on your left hand side.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
