I fished the Red here in town last night. I was in lumber near a deeper hole a ways below a dam. Marked plenty of fish and caught some goldeye and one 4 lb. walleye.
The ice was butter-soft so be extremely careful if you're going to go out and give it a shot. I can't believe how crappy the ice got after two warm days. A few days of normal Feb. weather would firm it up good, but it was approaching dangerous.

Wiskers, any reports from your neck of the woods? How's the ice?

I fished below a dam in town and managed to scrape up three slough sharks. All were 2-3 lbs and were caught on cranks.

The ice is getting pretty soft here also.. wont be long... got fingers crossed...

With this rain that will only make it even more dangerous.. No fish is worth a life, wait for open water and take a boat from her on out fellas... Im thinking of taking a long cord and running a nipco out to the river to help it open up... LOL LOL ...

We fished the north dam on Sat. Got one good hit on jig and plastic by the dam no other bites. Worked cranks along the shore and vertical jigged the rocks.
We did not fish real hard it was just nice to fish again!
Be REAL careful walking along the shore on the MN side the snow makes it hard to see the rocks and it would be real easy to mash up a leg or hurt a knee there.
Saw some other guys fishing cranks by the dam also did not see them catch anything but they were still fishing when we left.
Probaby will wait until the rocks are clear and we can see where we are walking should not be to long its supposed to warm up again next weekend so hopefully this melt will continue.
Quick question is it still possible to fish the Wild Rice dam? I asked Ed last year because it was posted and he said that you could walk down there. Since then somebody put up new no trespass signs just wondering if the owner of the land still lets people go there I know a lot of people fish there.
Again thanks for the posts I'm guessing we will get better reports as it continues to warm up.

Yup, the fishing will pick up as it warms and thaws.
As for the Wild Rice, the owners usually give permission. However, I wouldn't consider going down there without permission. The owners are very nice and generous, but have been treated poorly by a number of people who have abuse the opportunity to fish down there- parties, littering, driving down right past the no trespassing signs. Definitely get permission before you go down there.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!
