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 fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!

      https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/park.html?id=spk00285#recreation_facilities   says there is a public access on stuntz bay.   further research pending.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/was/report.html?id=69037801   Water Access Site Detail Vermilion Lake, Stuntzbay Public Water Access Site   Administrator: Township Location: 2.5 miles northeast of Tower, on Stuntz Bay, on the south shore of Vermilion Lake. Facilities: 2 concrete slab ramp(s) 10 vehicle/trailer parking spaces(s) 1 dock(s) Lat/Lon: 47.826428,-92.23896   Might be worth a call to the DNR to confirm one way or another.
