I heard from local sources that it's going to be closed the rest of the year! Only a minor inconvenience, eh.

I drove over the bridge this afternoon and they were rolling the sediment barrier on the west side of the bridge up onto a boat, only to drive over again a couple hours later and it had been put it out on the East side. I'm tempted to try to jump it, like the Duke Boys.....YEEEHAWWW!!

I heard that it wasn't supposed to open for a week or two, but there was a boat jumping the floats and yelling so loudly, they opened it a few days early. smile.gif

The silt fences were open yesterday...Took the family out for a little boat ride and went under the bridge for the first time.

Hey Stick, have you seen the pretty art work on the new bridge. They appear to be a series of symbols of some kind. Maybe MNDOT marks there 'turf' with graffitti? Nothing highlights the beauty of cultured stone like blue spraypaint.

No I hadn't...that's terrible. Everything from the top side looks so nice, and I haven't been by the causeway by boat lately to see how nice it looks from the water. Day by day, I get depressed more and more by what people are capable of. Hopefully it'll get covered up and look good.

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.
