I have been up in the reef area a few times this month. Had really good luck once with some quality fish, and slow the other times. Doesn't seem to be the numbers of fish that you would expect up there. More numbers on the south end to chase it seems. It should start to pick up, but who knows. It has been slow overall, but I'm starting to hear a few more good things as of late. Good Luck

Ranger20 I'll bet I personally have thrown back a dozen fish short of the 30 mark this past year. I kept it and brought it to the Taxidermist up there (a guy I know)

Do you know how much a Replica costs?

I'm blue collar buddy

Make sure your Vex is in tip top shape. We had many Aggressive Big Walleye's 10 to 15 feet off of the bottom in 31 to 34 feet.

Anyone thats keeps and kills a walleye over 24inches is a fishing pig, and stupid with replicas that can be make today. The cost difference is not that much considering the life of such a fish. Other opinions?

Its his choice to keep it and do what he wants with. Would I keep it? No. Will I rip on him for doing so? No. Doesnt matter what I think. His fish, his choice. I killed a 7 lb bass about 10 years ago and wish I had put it back now. Replicas are the way to go but some people like the real thing. Does that mean it wrong? No. Just because you think its wrong, does that mean its wrong fpr everyone? No. Its just your opinion.

Yeah... Who are you to tell someone what they can and cant keep within the law? I'm sure thats not the only fish that big in their.... In fact I'm sure their may be some BIGGER! Its a great fishery that is simply HUGE!

Calling someone a "fishing pig" for keep a trophy fish within the laws is shallow and you should feel ashamed!

I believe you and anyone who agrees with you is simply jealous and ignorant.

Does it always gotta be a Pi-s-sin match in here?! Hey if the guy wants to keep it,"then let the guy keep it!" If you dont like it, keep it to yourself! I'm sure that eye made his day, week, or even month! Atleast he's mountin it. I know a guy that ate two 10lb Eyes! No joke..."He Ate them hogs and enjoyed every bite"!

Congrats on that Pig Wingding!

Fisned over by wigwams houses the last 2 days very poor fishing only little saugers then went over to Pine in 32 to 33 ft and we pounded the eyes a lot of suspended fish over there. i personally do not like going over where they put there houses seems like it is always VERY slow over there.

losthikingguide is outta his mind. First of all, who is he to be telling anyone what to do with their fish? He was within his right and within the law. That is why they say 1 over 28" or whatever the slot is on your favorite lake. For this guy to be calling names is really not cool. Bet he wouldn't have the sack to walk into that guys living room and tell him it is a waste of a fish and that he is a pig. Don't be the big man behind the computer...just keep your mouth shut. Maybe if we all did like Thumper the rabbits mom said, dont say anything if you dont have anything nice to say. BTW, what happened to keeping thing positive around here?

Like everyone else has said. Who are you to say. As far as the cost, YES THERE IS A BIG COST DIFFERENCE!!! Just a good blank can cost as much as a skin mount before any paint is put on it. Also when I get a mount done, I want a mount of the fish I caught, not the molded blank of someone elses fish.

Nobody really cares, do what you want with the fish and keep your mouths shut...

Let's get back to the title of this post - isn't there a moderator out there to stop some of these current threads?

Okay okay enough already! PLEASE let's not let one bad apple spoil the whole basket !!

Nice fish wing ding. I know you and you do your share to help our fish. You've released enough over the years to keep one for the wall no doubt!!!!

Was out of morris point and got drifted in by the storm, if planning on going far of the road you will need a snowmobile again. The day before we could drive anywhere and we where fishing the ice. Morris point could only plow a road about 25 yrds from the house before they gave up and left us to shovel the rest, thankfully somone from cyrus was able to help us get the trucks and house back on the road. Fishing was good caught eyes from 17FOW to 34FOW had 8 bonus jumbos also!

Hi all, I have an all wheel drive truck and if I was to put on chains would I be able to get around better on the big lake or do you really need to have a sled.

The weekend of Jan 16-18 I pulled my 6.5x12 wherever I wanted with my 4x4 and rear tire chains. A lot has changed since then.

I would have to believe that the warm temps/rain had to settle most of the old snow and with the cold temps now it should be froze pretty solid. The problem probably is the new snow drifting up all of the previous ice roads.

      Yeah, I’ve fished Chequamegon Bay a few times. Never did very well over there.    Superior will have to freeze a whole lot more before I venture out there. I’ve only ice fished out of Duluth once before, and that was 3 years ago when over 80% of the lake was frozen over. It was pretty cool! I remember marking lots of lake trout. Also caught my personal best brown trout.

      Tried a shallow pothole lake today that didn’t have slush!!! For real!   Landed on some bass before I found the crappies.  Caught 3 before the last one broke my line and made off with my micro rippin rap.  Dang!  Hope I can find another one.  I’ve been leaning on that bait for scouting.  Fish like to look at it and bump it but not usually hook up unless it’s eelpout, pike and now bass.  All I’ve needed was for them to show themselves and maybe hit the closest set line.   Those are good eaters in the winter.   Found the crappies and had a good bite going just before dark and then they got lock jaw.  30.24 barometer didn’t help and hole hopping at 15 below just isn’t as fun as it used to be so I loaded up.  To be continued another day.

      That’s a game I never really got into playing.  Only one time was I ever on Superior ice.  Cool experience and managed a kamloops but never went back.   Have you ever tried the Apostle Islands?

      Any word on the ice this year

      Anyone want to meet up and fish this weekend private message me . 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Few people were out fishing today. Reports I saw said the ice was up to 5 inches thick, and making lots of noise! Saw a few fish pics too, some cohos and lakers. Sounds like the wind is going to shift tonight though, so all ice could very well be gone tomorrow 😢 keeping my fingers crossed that the ice field keeps expanding and getting thicker!

      no arguement from me!!!!!!!

      Vermilion is a weird lake. I've probably caught 12 -15 fish that measured 26.5 inches. My family has seen the same thing amongst relatives.  It's like they hit that size and stop. I've caught one 27.5,  and seen a 28.5 and 29 caught.  That's it for real big fish over the slot. I know there are still a bunch of 30 inches swimming in the lake, I just never seem to catch them.  Bumping the slot to 28 would be okay. I'm not really for it or against it. I still don't like having to toss back fish that are likely to die. Bigger walleye take more time and effort to get in. While I have zero plans to eat a walleye over 20 inches, leaving a dying fish for the seagulls and crayfish seems silly.

      Um, yeah I like to ride on trails in the woods not on lakes. Their cold, windy, slushy and boring with nothing to see. 😒
    • smurfy
      well someone has to pack that slush down with a snowmobile so it freezes...might as well be you!!!!!!!! 🤣👍
