can't say if they are froze up yet but maybe along the shorelines out of the wind, I was wondering if the docks on the public access' are still in the water? tough to land my boat without a dock

Green is open! Ramp in town OK! Fish are still biting! Troll a deep diving jerk bait along the 8-20 ft. breaks. If you can find some weeds along the breaks that will help. Use your electric if it isn't to windy. If you go over to Nest you'll need to break a bit of ice. Be careful out there! The water is COLD!!!!!!!! Worth the effort though! Yesterday I got a pair of sixes and fives. Some bonus smallmouth and northern to. Good Luck! If you see a old guy in a little tin boat that will be me.

Thanks for the info, I made it to Green and cauught several fish. Found fishing hard. Water temps 40-42. Fish were all caught 8-20 feet. East landing on nest was frozen. You must have used the West access.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
