What'll you be looking for? I hear that lake is good for early ice crappies.

Out from the landing can be good for Crappies and pike,

Lake about 40% froze over today.

According to the DNR web site a majority of the Crappies are very small is this true

The crappies I caught there last winter were all worth keeping. This summer and fall I caught a few nice ones as well. The sunfish are a different story. LOTS of sorting to be done with those. Lots of Pleasant Lakes in the area too, we're talking about the one on the north side of the city of Annandale I believe.

I checked it out this morning... By now I'd say it has to be 75% frozen.

Once there's enough to get out, the hot spot is always the "Flats" which is just off of the North access. Northerns bite like crazy during the day, and you can catch a few crappies during the night if you find the right depth.

Went out on Pleasant today... It was hard to tell the ice depth with the way we chiseled our holes, but I'd say there was a solid 5-6 inches of ice. There is slush on top in some areas though.

If your looking for Pike, they are very active on the breakline in 24 FOW. Fished it this morning and did very well. Sucker minnow on tip-up and jigging a #7 white glow pimple.

The bite on Pleasant has died off considerably. You can still snag a few pikes on the Flats in about 12 FOW though.

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
    • Rick
      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
