I recently moved to the area and this will be my first year ice fishing on Vemilion. I have fished the east end quite a bit on open water but never ice. I live on Pike Bay and wondered if some of you could offer some basics on how to get started for walleye, panfish, etc. I have a portable, auger, and a few rods.   Thanks for any information you can offer!!!!  Any small panfish lakes in the area you can just walk out on?

Welcome up! Your best bet for decent fishing will be out from Mckinley park on vermilion and as the winter goes on it tends to slow, so earlier is better there for walleyes. Pretty limited for panfish in the immediate area and any decent spot is kept quiet (for good reason). Pike river reservoir has some panfish but extreme caution is urged with the current (access on hwy 1 above Dam). There are a few panfish lakes closer by Ely you can check out or south around Virginia/Eveleth or up by Orr. Dnr lake Finder helps a lot and be willing to explore and put miles on your legs (you can often be rewarded).
