I guess it wouldn't surprise me, there's some monsters in there. The lake is really only used for waterfowl.

*note to self, drive past the next few days and watch as a new shanty town will be set up. wink

Just playing with the guys.

Big perch but no record.

Are you also playing about Madison? I've put some hours in on the local lakes and have yet to pull one bigger than 11".

geez harvey, how big are those things?

If I remember correctly, I believe one was like 13.5 and the other almost 15 or a bit over that mark.

Just do not remember.

Nice fish Dtro, if you could just send me the bait you were using, time of day you were fishing, and precise GPS coordinates, I will do the rest myself. Harvey, nice joke. I saw your post and fish and said HONEY!, that guy that built your rod just caught the state record perch..... Then I read further. You got me.

3 lbs 4 oz is the state record perch caught on a lake I use to fish every other day when I lived in Bemidji. Now I only fish it about once per year, when I am visitng. It would be hard to get a perch that big anywhere. Who knows if that is a real record anyway, kind of like Allen Sprays Ski, maybe a hoax, but in the record books......

      The pups and I put on 10.5 miles today and flushed 3 hens, 2 grouse and I killed a pine tree, 1 rooster flushed wildly 100 yards to left of us. It sure was fun to get out and seeing some birds. We did jump a good number of deer.

      A couple of Facebook posters on Lake Vermilion Cabin Owners group said that there was still open water in Big Bay Friday Morning.  I am guessing that they may be talking about Oak Narrows.  I'm staying with my original freeze-over date of Thursday, December 1.   Somebody I know who went out fishing from McKinley Park Saturday said that Big Bay was frozen over.  He also said he walked all around the bay and found thicknesses of 1" to 5" of ice, so it is still very questionable.  It should be safe for walking by the middle of next week.   This site will have ice reports for the next week or so.  I will be up the middle of next week and should report on the ice by Thursday night.  The moderator has merged this topic with the Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports topic so I will switch to posting there when I have fishing reports.  Good luck fishing, but be very careful of varying ice conditions.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
