Above is one the most intresting tools in my fishing tool box. I was in another forum and talking about tip ups after

season closing and what would dnr think. I use this puppy on mill lacs after season closes for perch. I have been stopped by DNR and they love it after I show it to them.

thought you all might like to look at it. I have gotten sevral e-mails asking what a Finicky's fish factory was.

It has its own heater (never freezes even at -30) that uses reg. oil or camping fuel. Heater dubbs as light in the night. it also has multi-speed power Jigging (runs on battery's), temp gauge (all the way to -40), power vent, adjustable drag, fish on flag and red becon light, port hole to see if fish is on with out opening box. It is light weight and black to absorb heat. You can rest your knee;s on lid when open, so you do not get your knee;s wet.

Its sponsered by fishingminnesota.com. A great item. It costed about $100.00, but i have used it for 8 years and still works great. I display it right on the wall of my garage, I am proud of it.

      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

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
