No really, Ice out, not political banter

10 posts in this topic

Anyone know how the conditions are up that way? The other thread on this subject took political overtones and would fit better in the discussion thread in my opinion. Anyone have any new info about the ice or lack thereof? Thanks!

The wife and I drove up to Garrison yesterday. The lake is opening up around the edges. I would say that the first 30 to 40 yard of ice along the shore on the West side is gone. Still a long way to go. One good rainy windy day and it could all be gone.

ave ice out is 4/20 - think we may be a few days late this year even with recent warm weather - its going to take some wind to get her off.

Now that isn't political banter but it is straying a bit. I am going to say that the ice will be off by the 28th. Good luck out there folks!

      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
