4 wheelers out on Tonka yesterday afternoon/evening. There is 6 inches of ice on most areas. But CAUTION some ice did not form until this past sunday the 19th. I was fishing on this new ice last night and there was about 3 1/2 to 4 inches and nothing more.

There were guys pulling 8x8 permanent houses out with 4 wheelers on this!!!! shocked.gif

This was on the main upper lake area. with the recent cold snap I have noticed a lot of pressure cracks starting. Be careful out there.

I drove around the lake on Sat and sunday to check the open water areas. If you want to know if certain area had open water recently drop me a line.

I fished on Independence Monday evening...no fish but I didn't get started until about 8. I didn't measure the ice for thickness, but I would estimate that it was about 5 inches 1/2 mile out.

      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
