I was out sunday, monday, but couldn't go last night (daughters birthday). There was one person out in the hot spot last night.

The ice turned extremely bad from sunday to monday so I'm really not expecting to be able to get out tonight, but I'm going to try.

It is a sad day, late ice fishing is over. This is my favorite time of the year, it ended way to quick.

Time to get the boat and rod & reels ready!

I drove my wheeler out on Monday, seemed to be plenty good ice. Fishing was great. I love pulling panfish from skinny water late in the ice season. May have to hoof it out there this weekend though.

Things were pretty thin by Alex last weekend with 12-24 inches and lots of honeycombing. Your holes were square after you augered them out real chunky loose ice. Big Pine had 24+ on Tuesday night with about 18 inches or good solid clear ice. I thought it was over but might get in another trip. The bite wasn't as good as a week ago.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      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
