Tiny little dusting in Avoca.

HOWEVER, this weather is a total drag. I really want to get my boat in the water and hit the early season crappies on Shetek and bloody. Huge whitecaps and brrrr cold arn't my idea of fun on the lake.

I know what you mean Eric. I have been trying to get on the Minnesota and Mississippi for some eye and channel cat action and its to cold to enjoy it. I would assume the cold weather has dropped the water temps and the eye fishing has slowed. frown.gif

I have also been thinking of Washington for some slab crappies but the weather isnt helping there either.

The next run might be the Sturgeon event if the cold and ice leaves that area.

At least we have no snow in Arlington. smile.gif

With these northwest winds you couldn't have found a better spot to get some ice shots. Great pics.

My neighbor and I are fishing the Border water challenge on Big Stone the end of the month. I hope mother nature gets it all out of her system now so it's at least half way decent.

      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 ]
