Ice Fishing Season Over?

4 posts in this topic

I made my first ever trip to Red last Spring. It was a tremendous area. Something that should be there for all to enjoy. It was sad yo see the, shall we say, unfriendlyness that exist between the tribe and non-tribe members. I know it has developed this way over decades, but I hope all sides would look more at the possibilitys than what has gone wrong in the past. I would think the lake could be a greater resorce for the tribe than any casino could ever be.

I will be there again the last week of may. I come from North Central Iowa and love the area. I wish you were not 8 hours away, but I guess that is what makes your area so special.

I like to fish and love to hunt! We have great Whitetails in Iowa but I would bet you have some nice bucks up there.

Oh, by the way, is the ice season over? I read with great envey all of the ice fishing reports. I hope to get up there and experience 1 time. Also, when is the latest the ice has ever gone out?

Enjoy where you all live, it is a VERY SPECIAl place, I would guess if you live there you might sometimes forget how special it is!

Ice fishing season is not over yet. I drove my atv out today from West Wind with no problems. We are going to have some cold weather for the next couple of days which should make it easy to get out. With the snow we got last night the snowmobile should go good, and make it easier to cross the pressure ridge.

The latest I'v ever seen the ice on the lake was is 97 or 98. My dad and I walked out on the ice on walleye opener in May.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
