great fish. I was busting my hump with no results until the lakes started to heat up for me last weekend. Good fishing in other lakes can be good for the busy lakes up there, but for you, I hope it doesn;t get too busy on your lake.

Great catches.

I hope you didn't delete the post due to people criticzing for the verticle hold.

Some people jsut always want to put their 2 cents in, and it is usually negative. We would be here all day if we argued about what is bad for a fish or not.

Keep up the good work and holdem how you want, with care. Some say a fish gets hurt by the battle more than anything. DO we now all have to quit.

Appreciate your response and private message,...fished "another" lake this afternoon and did extremely well. Longest musky to date but not as beefy as you might expect for the length. Expect this pattern might continue awhile yet.

Been fishing up here since 1968 and hard at it several weeks each summer since HS graduation in 81. Something to learn every time out.

Good idea to delete post, anytime someone mentions a specific lake it can get too much pressure in a short time. From the picture a guy could even tell the location on the lake. Don't fish for muskies so do not need to worry about me.

I imagine the people that complain are the people who are never able to catch any fish in the first place. It takes intelligence and fishing experience to identify a Musky pattern, and you sir appear to have the necessary skill. I saw the photos before the delete and anyone who thinks it was 2 pics of the same fish couldn't tell a Musky from a Perch. A fish can be held in the vertical hold without undue stress. It's the fight that stresses the fish. 15 seconds out of the water for a picture and measurments, and the proper revival process means no harm, no foul. Good Job, CopterJohn!

Raptor nice personal attack! So there is a difference between a Muskie and Perch, thanks I did not know.

Don't take comments so seriously. I saw both pics, first fish was covered with blood and sky line was different.

        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.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
