With the current slot, (It will be expanding very soon)it's like finding a needle in the haystack. If you're catching big eyes move to another location. They are out there but you have to be willing to leave big fish in search of smaller ones.

It's going to be tough to find them for potentially a couple years. ML had a 06 year class that was off the charts that was gobbled up by big fish. Now that year class is just average or slightly less as 1 year olds. Lots of cannibalism in walleye, young walleye ended up being a big part of the adult walleye diet.

Nothing to get discouraged over. That's nature, boom and bust. Get a nice year class for 08 and maybe open up the harvest a little on some of those larger fish and things will be okay IMO.

Tough to have your cake and eat it too but IMO the last couple years I've been able to do both at ML. It won't keep me away from the lake...

You will more than likely have the most success targeting eating-size fish on the rocks.

That is a great looking stringer of fish. Makes my mouth water. The thing is though if you apply the 14-16" rule we have now it would look quite different. One long stringer with a cigar hanging on it. Barely enough for a cat to dine on.

        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.
