I was up on Saturday and had two with only one tip up out in less than 3 hrs on the lake. One big one that broke my 30lb leader with a head shake as he got to the top of the hole.

I was with my 6yr old and couldn't keep up with either taking perch off or setting up another rod after he tangled up his.

Shallow water, Perch: small teardrop with crappie minnow 1 ft off the bottom, and they slammed it. Pike was with Sucker on a tip up. There were 2 guys tip up fishing about 100 yds from me and they were pretty active, but I couldn't tell you how many.

Our son has been doing real well fishing in Cove Bay for Northerns. He took his daughter up for the week-end,they did real well at the house, caught walleyes on red hooks with big shiners. Then fished the bay and caught Northerns. They had a riot. Our granddaughter is hooked on fishing.YES

Thanks for the fast response. Hopefully if the perch walleye bite is tough we can take the 4 wheelers and find some pike to keep us busy...

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
