Renting trancheff's cabin, june 2nd-9th, first time on west side!!

9 posts in this topic

Guys week out, gotta love em.. We've made it a tradition for about 8 years now, and were gonna try the west end for the first time. I'm sure as like most years, the walleyes wont be hard to find, but being so far from black bay, the crappies might not be worth the 30-40$ in gas. Lookin at the map, rice bay might be my best option for crappies, unless were too late.....

Cliff-I'm pretty sure U were the guy that gave us a tow to voyager cove, from a I think laura bay, I orred for hours, and I think u saved me from a blistering sunburn.. mid june last year!! big blue lund, with splash guards on the back!! I owe U!

Pat and Ellen will take good care of you. You should be able to find a few crappies just north of the resort or in Bystom Bay which is quite a bit closer than Rice or Black Bays. Watch out, you may catch that Musky Bug that Pat has so bad....

Parrot,

I do not think it was me that towed you last year to Voyagers Cove. It could have been though, my memory certainly is not what it used to be! confused.gifgrin.gif

The pizza spot would be the Vermilion Club. Pretty decent pizzas. Sunday or else Monday night is "pizza night" 1/2 price pizzas! laugh.gif

Trancheffs' is a great location for fishing both ends of the lake! Niles Bay, Wolf Bay or most of the bays that are West of Oak Narrows all have a few crappies and some very nice sunfish!

darn, pizza delivery woulda been great!!

Thanx, for lettin me know I don't have to drive so far the panfish.

Wonderin if minnows are still workin, I'll definatly stop into the vff for some rainbows, is that the "Y-store"?

Feel free to stop in anytime from the 2nd-9th, plenty of dock space, and beers for ya! Just north of the bridge, If the boats there(red lund pro v, w/ 90hp evi), we're there. We'll tell u fishin spots that have worked, just not our honey hole!! Time it right, and probably a fish fry! Don't worry, I fillet, so NO BONES.

Can't wait to get there!!

The Vermilion food and Fuel is NOT the Y store. It is located in Tower.

Minnows , leeches and even a few caught on crawlers this week!

      What do you think Smurfy? No answer maybe we better send out a search party.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

      February 23rd, 2017:
         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
