Looks like the weather will be pretty bad for the classic this year. Forecast is calling for an 80% chance of rain and very windy conditions. Fortunately for me I have decided to skip the tournament this year. I think the wife and I will do our fishing on Friday and Sunday to avoid the bad weather. Have fun all you classic anglers, don't forget to wear your rain gear.

 First time fishing the tourney.  Brutal trip across big bay in the crestliner but we ended up in 14th with a check. We had a perfect 19 7/8 fish.  Had a 20 1/4 and 3 from 22-23" to. I was up all week and was really impressed with the average size fish this week.

I fished the tournament and cashed a check also, the weather forecast earlier in the week was looking like a wash out but Friday night we were informed that the rain was going to hold off which it did and it turned out to be a decent day with the exception of the strong east wind. Like cliff we had issues with our equipment as well, my transducer was slamming against the back of the boat after our first trip across big bay in the morning. My trolling motor would not deploy when we made it to our first fishing spot but my anchor worked well and we were fortunate that we didn't need to move to catch fish. 

I was surprised at the number of slot fish we caught, I was also surprised at the number of big fish weighed and the overall number of fished weighed at the end of the tournament at Fortune bay. The old saying  "winds from the east you catch the least" didn't hold true yesterday. The folks who put on the City Auto Glass tournament are top notch and it was a very well run event.

      Thank for the update and photo Dave and Diane! Cliff

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
