We spent a few hours on Vermillion yesterday. Although the drifted snow might make cross lake travel difficult without a sled, there's plenty of access around the lake by plowed roads.

We chose a road near Ely island and proceeded to drill holes for our portable shack and was surprised that we were drilling down to near the motor housing. Thre was approximately thirty inches of ice! Next time out we'll have to put the auger extension on. While the walleyes eluded us on the twenty-two foot break, we did manage to pick up a good number of whitefish destined for the smoker.

I caught a bunch of whitefish last winter out there, over 20. I was gonna do the same thing. I brought them home and cut the fillets off and put them in a tupperware in the fridge. I was planning on brineing them the next day. Took them out in the morning and they had all these little white worms crawling all over coming out of the meat. I know its just extra protien but kinda gross. I've never seen anything but those little grubs in the panfish and perch out there. I don't know what these were?

I found a spot yesterday that didn't have enough ice to hold up the truck. Granted, it was close to shore and a mucky bottom, the fact remains, ice is never safe. Luckily, it was only one front tire that broke through.

Ya they were tullibees...nice size ones. I'd be willing to trade a nice tullibee spot for a crappie hole grin

If you have tulibee, there is probably a pretty good chance that if there are any crappie in the area, they will be there also at some point in time.

caught some tulibee out there tonight..only one small eye though. Had a lot more lookers, but couldn't find the right lure/presentation to make them biters. Ice was probably around 25 inches and I stayed on the roads so it was slush free grin

      I wonder what the general location was??

      There will be a 60" out of there in next few years.

      I think there should be a catch and release state record category for EVERY fish.  Not just these larger ones.  Not everyone is interested in killing a fish that could potentially be a stated record.  I understand that they're trying to protect these larger species of fish but there should be a C & R option for all of them, not just some of them.   Way to go on the muskie.

      Corey Kitzmann of Davenport, Iowa now holds Minnesota’s brand-new state record catch-and-release muskellunge, a 57¼-inch monster caught on Lake Vermilion.   read it in the Duluth news tribune   https://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/4731617-Iowa-angler-lands-monster-musky-on-Lake-Vermilion

      Got out Saturday and tried for some eyes and didn't find a one...barely graphed a fish in many areas!  We switched it up and went crappie fishing and found a school in deep water and caught enough for a meal.  We were using small jigging raps.  Great bait when trying to stay vertical in deeper water with a slight wind.  Hope to get out another time or 2 but we will see what ma nature has to say about that...Good Luck- Ozzie

      We are actually in the city of Monticello.  We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant.  As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing.  Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests.  We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters.  It helps big time.  Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area.  MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are.  More improvements to come to our range soon.  Great place, great people.
