Tomorrow I am taking my 7 year old nephew out for his first time on the ice. Where can I catch fish? ANYTHING!!

I want him to have a fun day, and at least see his bobber go under. Any lake between Stillwater and Wyoming. Thanks!!!!

Green lake will do you proud. Go to the access on the east side and follow the road out to your left. You will see a bunch of shacks in the area about 1/2-3/4th mile from the landing. It is easy fishing in 6-8' of water. Tear drop and waxies will get you bit all day long with bluegills, crappies and an occassional bass or pike that cruises through with even the possibility of a walleye. Really easy fishing due to the water depth. Hope this helps.

Perfect!Thanks! I'll let you know how it goes. We are also going out on Forest(first)to have lunch in a buddys perm shack. Should be a great day!

I would suggest the exact same. I go out with my 5, 3 and 2 year old and it is hard to keep up with them using one pole each. I don't even try to fish, just re-bait and remove fish from their lines. Mostly small panfish, but the kids love it.

You guys were dead on. By the time I got a second hole drilled, he had caught 2 fish. I gave up and baited and unhooked fish. What fun! Took him over to Forest after, just so he could see what it's like to not catch fish also........

Glad to hear to hear you had a good time. Nothing like the little ones when they are fire up and catching fish! May have hooked another one into fishing. Nice job getting him out to fish!

Glad to hear it worked out. With the kids I take quantity over quaility any day. There is the chance of getting some nice fish out there too. We were out and my brother caught four bass (2lbs - 3lbs) and a northern. I have never seen that many bass caught at once in the winter??? Great to hear that the next generations are out there on the ice doing us proud!

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
