Was up to Red last thursday thru saturday morning, 6 guys landed 8 crappies. We went out of Hillmans about 3.5 miles. I was wondering where people have been having luck lately? Which access and how far out?

I am also looking for the current scoop, are all accesses still open to truck traffic? Heading up in the morning. Thanks.

It is a day to day battle depending on weather, traffic, and even pressures. The ice is doing what the ice does in spring. It melts a little then refreezes then shifts around and melts some more, so on and so forth. The ice on the main currently is safe and stable, although the shoreline can get ugly quick. What normaly happens is the first hundred yard will get all kinds of wet and messy then once past that it is smooth sailing. ATVS and sleds are normally the best option. Also call ahead to the access you are using if you are unsure.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
