Tire Chains

3 posts in this topic

Last year I investigated getting tire chains and found a lot of info online. I noticed you had to get EXACTLY the right ones for your tire size and they all were a little diffrent in how easy they were to attach. My truck seems to get around pretty well up there but towards the end of the season last year it got a little dicey. I have never used them and was wondering if any of you might have some advice on chains and how many of you use them.

I run chains on my truck for moving fish houses and plowing. One on each rear tire. The brand I have were around 100 dollars? They hook up in a snap.If you do get stuck you do have to be carefull as they will dig into the ice in seconds.

I bought two sets of chains at Mills Fleet Farm. They had the most selection. Mine do not have the v-bar welded on ut came in handy on Red Lake. I had to put chains on all 4 as I do not have locking hubs. I did not buy the chain tightners but may do so now. Would help keep chains tight etc.

      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
