It was really nice weather, could'nt have been any better.

My wife was real nevous on the way out over Pine Island that Weds. night. Alot of water in spots, and the wind sure did blow later that evening.

Shadyzr: I don't blame your wife for the nervousness. Even if you know you've plenty of ice underneath you, there's just something erie about driving through water which looks more like June than March. I heard they had shut down Wheeler Point access on Sunday. It seems every year someone drops one in in the 4 mile bay area. Once that water starts to move under there and towards the river it goes down hill quickly. Oh well, now open water and then we can dream about ice fishing again next year. Bill

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
