it all depends on what lakes your looking at. most small - medium size lakes have 2-5 inches with a couple around 4-6 inches. the bigger lakes are still very border line. most people....the smart ones at least....are still walking on all lakes. you will be able to fish, just check the ice and check it often

rscabin,
since sherrif is a small lake I would think the ice should be good, but then again, it is a very deep lake, and probally spring fed, so be carefull. what do you usually fish for on this lake? I have fished it only in summer, have marked many fish, but they were unwilling to bite. I am on fleming lake, which should be going this weekend, and I am expecting at least 8 inches of ice here.

knoppers my nieghbor has a place in Lawler. He was going up this weekend. I was thinking of going but something came up and did not make it. I was just wondering how thick the ice was. Ive been hereing scattered reports on different thickness's. It is probably going to be ready here in the south metro area by next weekend. Let me know how well you did. Maybe some time I can run in to you and say hi. Ever been in Jackson hole taveren in Lawler.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few.

      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
