Nice to hear...

We hit the riv this a.m. but in search of smallies once again, didn't get out till 6:00 and fished until 10:00. I suppose we caught and realeased about 25 or so, a few nice ones over 15". Sure was a nice morning, and can't wait to go out after the eye's next time! Buddy even got an 18" largemouth, crazy.

Was out w/tunrevir Sat. a.m. 6-11. Caught some smallies, couple of nice crappies, fun with a big pike. My first time out w/tune and first time in Franconia area. Beautiful weather scenery and weather. Randy, thanks again for the trip, had a lot of fun. Anyone get's a chance to fish w/tunrevir, do so. He know's his stuff and he's good company in the boat. take cars and good fishing.

What a difference between yesterday and today, today I took two guys out and we could only manage to catch 1 (one) legal walleye, seemed the shorties had the run of the place, its amazing how many are just shy of 15" ( 14 1/2 - 14 3/4) but its nice to know by fall they will be legal fish. We found a school today that everyone was just under except for one 15 1/2. After all said today the river may not of gave up any sizable fish today but it was alot of fun. There's always next weekend!

I like to use the Bluffs. I you buy a Washington county park pass (I think it was $25 last year) it's good for a year and you can use it other places. Plus fishing is decent out of the bluffs.

After you left, we worked your area for another 30 minutes. No keepers except for a couple sheepies. Thanks for the hooks!! We did manage 2 in the 17-18" range earlier on the other side and had several shorties over there, too.

Speaking of a new day, my brother and I headed to Pool 4 where we had a guide trip last Sunday. We only managed 1 keeeper and several cigars. The conditions, water temp, air temp, skies, were identical to last Sunday, so it was very disappointing. I officially don't get P4 anymore confused.gif , and vowed to not go back until the fall. I will work on the croix the rest of the summer because it's way closer to home. wink.gif

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
