Anyone been out on these lakes or any in this area? I have tomorrow off and would like to hit something in this area. Any fishing report would help also. I have a wheeler and would like to use it if possible. I have a bad back but will walk. I haven't got out much this year.

Tech- There were still full size vehicles out on Chisago today on my way home from work. The shoreline ice is what you would have to watch.. The wheeler should be ok.. but again, be carefull around the shoreline areas.

Good luck!

Thank you. I need to get out I just don't feel like swimming. I am taking my 68 year old father out. I think he is in better shape then me. Fish or no fish it will be fun.

Thanks again. Tech.

Boy, what a day. Chased fish all day. 15 inches of good ice but the access is bad. Marked fish but could not get them to bite. I tried everything except what they wanted I guess. Coming off the lake with the wheeler my dad was directing me so I would drive into the water, I sad I see it and in he went. Up to his knee in water. Next step, got the other foot wet. Had a good laugh about it. I wonder if theDNR would like to know about the ice shack that is still on this lake? There was a house on the lake when we got there, 2 guys came out fished for a while and left, leave the shack still there.

Bummer about your dads wet feet.. Glad it was only his feet!

What lake did you end up going out on?

East Boot. Heading up to Mcgregor area on Monday for a few days. Might hit Rush or 1 of the Chisago area lakes next Friday if ice stays safe. It is never a dull moment fishing with my dad.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂

      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
