Called a friend who has been fishing there and catching crappies. He said to concentrate on the lower suspended fish. He claims the upper suspended would not bite

Try down west of Best Point, north of the bar, in 22 to 28 ft. If you keep jiging the one that want to bite will raise off the bottom, keep pulling away from them. Sometimes you will have to sort though them, then other times they will be all nice fish. Good luck

If you know what my house looks like, stop in. Starting thursday night to the 24, moving quick and offen, run and gun. I might have to get a new auger before it done.

Not sure what your fish house looks like, but if you still have the same truck as when you, TO and myself did some perch fishing last year, I might recognize ya. ;\)

Same truck, a little whiter with all the road salt. Lets just say I think this weekend is going to be sweet. So much to do, so little time. I may have to go to work Monday to rest

So I should be keeping my eye out for a John Deer on the ice or something? \:\)

Just one last question for ya Ken. Can't remember if I asked this before or not, but how's the ice across the whole lake from west to east? Any trouble spots/areas I should be aware of (besides right up on Willow)? Dangerous over by the river inlet?

Thanks!

Well, I didn't see Ken or anyone I knew out on the lake Friday, but trying to find the 'eyes was a bust. One small slimer and one jumbo, but that was it. Focused hard on inside turns, the tips of points; steep drops, deep basin and shallow water flats, but nada.

Guess I'll have to wait for the opener now. From what I've heard, I maybe should have tried a different lake too.

I think it was just slow - at least where I was. Caught nice fish on Monday when it was cold and windy. Go back to the same spot - tons of fish on the camera on Sat - nothing wanted to bite.

There's another lake where somce nice 'eyes have been caught, espcially at night. But I stuck to my original plan and hit Tetonka. Kind of suprised there weren't that many houses out there. Lots of un-tapped water on Tetonka I'm sure.

And oh by the way....I'd highly doubt that any FM'ers here would do this, so don't think this is directed at any one of you. But to the people that leave garbage on the lake, please refrain from doing so and clean up after yourselves. I picked up countless cans, plastic bottles, cracker boxes, cookie bags, cigarette buts and the like. Just simply bring an empty plastic bag from Walmart or something and put the garbage in there when you're done with it. No need to stomp it into the snow or ice as was the case with much of the garbage I found.

Thanks.

It was fun. Nothing big, 15" to 18" more during the day, few at night. Just a few dinks. All in all I was smiling, but that might have been from the Captain. Still can't understand why people have to drive between houses that are 30' apart with pickup parted between them and nobody on the outsides of them. mad.gif

      We'll be making a trip in to GR again. in the next couple days. See what it looks like then.
    • TomWehler
      Hi I don;t know really if there is a list or not? Hmmmmm. good question? How do ya find out? I do know House boats tie up n camp to some of the smaller ones. So guessing fair game for campers also?? Fast simple way to find out those islands n locals might be to call Vermilion Houseboats n ask a few questions or drop by with a load Hoogies.  That 4 sure get some answers... KEEP OUT, PRIVIATE PROPERTY signs, Boat Lifts, docks ~ cabins n Reputation and of course GUNS n DOGS take care of the lite work for rest of us island owners. : ) 15 years ago Bonnie n I were going fishen an teasing Marauder crew of our hounds NO BOAT TODAY!  We jumped in boat on back dock, told them to have fun, be back soon. Driving around front of island to tease them an pick up front docks we see a boat pulling in to east side of island. I motor over an I ask if I can help them. Two dudes, kind of laurel n Hardy type couple. They say hey man, you a lake cop? Were on vacation an don't want no trouble, Go %$# @#$%^ an back off we are here 1st an need to take a dump. Before I say anything Bonnie says, well bud yer on private property an if you like staying healthy you should get back in yer boat really fast or you gonna know why in 10 seconds. : ) "Yeah well no one can own an island so just back off.....this aint nothing to do with you" That is when the four hounds turned corner of shed full blast in silent sneak attack mode.  : )Guess they were wrestling or chasing frogs or simply in shock that we did not let them in boat cause it took them about 1 minute to react to the voices. But maybe they were just waiting for right moment to GET IT ON! Becky arrived 1st....Buddy, then Barney an then Bailey....... One united big bark turned the dudes heads an you never seen two guys leap into a boat so fast just shy of four mouths full of teeth.... : ) Fat guy flew over the lil guy what seemed like 10 feet right into the bow of boat. Lil guys legs moving so fast to climb into boat an move it off show at same time all while screaming top of his lungs........HELP HELP HELP!!! Bonnie just says as I motor along to front docks to get hound pals.  "Talk to the hounds, this aint got nothing to do with us ~ remember" Fun couple of minutes! Later out on lake they apologized an asked info on places to camp an were sorry for being real DICKS. Told them to maybe got to DNR office in town an ask them about island camping as at the time I had no idea. Actually got to know them pretty good an laugh about this online every summer when they come to lake or when see them on lake once in a while. : ) Keep on rocken! T

      Yesterday there was open water, half way from the bridge to narrows used for netting and stripping.  It won't be long now.  The gates are still locked too.  
    • Hoey
      I was able to get my ice to boat equipment and gear cut-over completed.  Only problem was the electric golf cart was a no go.  Finally got it charged enough to move.  I just found out that the charger needed to be replaced.  Over $300 - ouch. There were many out chasing pike.  Those fishing on the reefs and in deeper water were not doing as well as those fishing in one foot of water below the ice.  Sounded like you need to be willing to run your auger into the sand.   I put new blades on my auger and went out to see how well they cut.  Well, I drilled down 2 feet in less than 3 seconds as the ice was on the hard side of slush.  I did not drill any further.  The hole filled immediately with water.   The pike chasers indicated they found little to no hard ice remaining.  That is encouraging since hearsay from the DNR indicated we need 4 weeks of 70 degree days with above freezing temps over night to get the ice out.   Come-on 70s!!!!

      For those interested in current conditions Red Door has a webcam and the north end typically goes the fastest or at least that is what it seems.  I'm all for a late ice out, similar to 2013 when the last really good year class of walleye were produced.   Kettle

      I know there are more than 300 islands on Lake Vermilion, but I was wondering if most of them are private, or could a guy throw some camping gear in his boat and stay overnight on one (obviously one that is uninhabited)? If that's possible, does anyone know of any resources that identify which ones are private and which ones would be available for something like that?    
    • leech~~
      Trying to stay on Topic from what I read. Ice out by opener.......so
    • delcecchi
      Sounds like the record of May 23 is looking safe for another year... 
    • BRULEDRIFTER
      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.
