I have never fished hard water on Lake Vermilion and its been 7 years since I have fished here.. I am wondering on how the fishing has been and if there is any good places to get a sleeper from..any help would be awsome!

The walleye fishing has been very good this winter on Vermilion.

The walleye season closed on Feb., 25.

Skip Pratt has a couple of sleeper rentals that he has been renting out the past few years.

Castindad,

Most people just use a minnow trap baited with any type of raw meat. Just throw it into an area that is rocky and there is enough water to cover the trap and leave it out overnight.

Remember, you need to have your name & address or your MN. DNR # on a tag attached to the trap!!

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
