There was decent bite about 2 weeks ago, We got 8 on opener but I have not heard any good reports since. The guys in the cabin got one yesterday fishing for walleye so that could be a good sign?They are out fishing tonight so it will be interesting to see if they targetted them today, They are here for the walleye

How's the wind been up there the last few days, and is there any forecasted for the next 2 days. I'll be up there Friday for some fishing, and hope to get into some crappies.

The winds have been hitting each shoreline, it just can't pick a direction. Yesterday it pounded the south shore then swung out of the south and pounded the north shore. It is starting get pretty muddy.

As far as the "majic 68 degrees" I guess you could find it somewhere but I have been on the south shore, the north shore, river and east side trapping shiners and all over the lake guiding and found the south shore coming in at 57-58 degrees, north shore averaging 56 degrees and the river roasting with litle current at 64. These temps can change daily as Red heats and cools very rapidly do to wind created tides pulling water off the bottom and placing it on shore to be blown acrosss the lake surface during the next wind.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
