I think everyone is out shoveling snow... grin.gif

Big, Slow, Find the baitfish and you'll find skies.

Bring lots of warm clothes. Hazard markers are all gone. Lake is still very low, lots of hazards. GPS Lakemaster is pretty accurate except for some portions east of Ely Island. Better throw some sand and a shovel in your rig. Boat launches can be all ice early and late in the day. Everything is white outside, very depressing. Too early..... frown.gif

Well we had good weather!! Fishing wasnt that good but manage one!! All the fish were in deep water, and I just dont like fishing in deep water!!! It also took a day and a half to find the baitfish and the muskies were right around them, like normal!!!!

Thanks again Lake Vermilion for a good trip!!!

I will be going up later next year, it was just to warm yet!!

By the way, whats the deal with all the nets in the water??

Thanks Brian

Nope I had the blue Lund Renagade 1650 with a white 90 Johnson on the back. We used the access at Mckinley park and my truck is black with MI stickers on the front, but close though!!! We stayed at the Glenmore(spelling??)

I only fish the East end by Ely, Windy, Nyberg, and 7 sisters Islands!! I only say one other boat casting for muskies and maybe 1 or 2 trolling.

What do they do with the fish they net??? I hope the muskies have enough to eat!!!

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks
    • Borch
      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
