Yeah I would bring a wheeler. You still have to be careful of those slush pockets. Better have a friend if you get stuck otherwise your screwed. Bite 4 eyes is about 1 hour dusk and dawn. Check 4 perch in the flats or in front of park out from flagpole. Good luck and have fun. P.S. Pout should start biting now.

It is awfully deep snow for the wheeler. If you can stay on packed snow from the sleds you're fine. If you are bringing an ATv you better have V-Bar tire chains. And there are a cou8ple of roads out off of pine so you can drive your truck. If you are going exploring though I would highly reccomend a snowmobile.

With chains you might be okay in some spots but be prepared for some slow going and a sore back from shoveling.

Willow were you out from erickson landing? I saw a 6-wheeler out there sunday afternoon and they looked to be having a heck of a time. Its real mess out there for anything with wheels on it. I would hope that this cold snap would lock things up but I don't think it will. The isnsulation value of all that snow is pretty impressive with the cold we have been having up here.

Thanks for the Report. I will probably bring it up and stay pretty close to road and hard pack.

Fishing should be fun, not work, I do that all week...

      I love the location of the Retreat Lodge, never stayed there though.

      I finally got out fishing last week on Thursday. I used a gulp alive minnow. one of the smaller ones, and it worked great. I put it on a pink ratso with a white body and the gulp on it and the crappies and bluegills would not leave it alone. Other baits were not as effective that afternoon.

      I am helping out with the MN SATT (high school fishing) and Classic Bass Pro tournament trail to help fill 20 more boat marshal spots on Le Homme Dieu and the chain on June 14, 2019.  As a boat marshal you will be placed in a boat with some of top bass pros in Minnesota and the country.  The likes of Dean Capra, Seth Feider, John Figi, Matt Peters,  and many more top pros fish these events.  (not sure if they are fishing the Le Homme Dieu event or not, but it gives you an idea of the caliber of anglers fishing this trail and the opportunity you could have to be in their boat!) Your job would be to record fish on an app and make sure the anglers are following all the rules of the trail.  There is much more information on the sign up page and if you have additional questions about what is require you can call my cell 612-819-8500.  We opened this up to High School Anglers first, and now we are opening it up the general public.  You must be 13 years or older and this is a great opportunity to learn something new by just being in the boat with some of these anglers.  Here is a link to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b084ba5ad2ba6fb6-classic2  sign up before the spots are filled up!

      Hello David, we visited Vermilion for years until purchasing some land in the Frazer Bay / Smarts Bay area. We have stayed at a number of resorts, but really enjoyed Retreat Lodge due to the owners, reasonable prices and fantastic fishing within 2 miles of where it is located! Good luck with your decision!   Vermilion is a one of a kind lake!

      Thanks guys!

      for crappies gulp alive 2.5 black shad is a great bait for me set on a 1/16oz jig.  tube jigs are great also!

      Hello, I am planning to spend a week with family at either Pelican or Vermillion in late July, and need to commit to just one. From what I know, both are great. I have been to Pelican in 15 years ago and liked it, but I've always been intrigued by Vermillion. I would appreciate thoughts and recommendations on both lakes, experiences at particular resorts. The family loves fishing for pike and I would like another crack at a Musky, but the main idea is to show the kids (9, 8, 6) the beauty of the area and build great memories. Thank you,   David

      Esox, couldn't find the online guide service in the last two issues of th Timberjay.  Could you please provide a link or a hint as to where you found it?

      I would say try Warroad casting spoons, spinners. Have heard of people catching walleyes there. Or there is a fishing pier in Baudette Bay of the Rainy. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55
