Questions about teh Big V!

Recommended Posts

Aces In The Hole

So I'll be on the Big V in a couple of weeks for 1 week. We will be staying in Black Bay. I was wondering what the water clarity is around that part of the lake. I haven't been on Vermilion since I was 16, which would be 11 years ago, but from what I remember the water there was stained looking, but when I check the Secci Disc survey it says it had a clarity of 9'. Which really shocked me. So if anyone knows the answer to my question that would be very helpfull so that I would be able to plan out my attack for the lake! Thanks!

Black Bay doesn't even hit 9 feet, and I can't see my toes in the water if I dangle them off of the dock. Most of the bigger fish tend to move out of Black Bay around early summer but there are plenty of great fishing spots nearby. In Black Bay there is still great pan fishing, crappies, and as of this past weekend plenty of big bullheads.

Black Bay gets a little warm for the big fish come summer. Since temps are already warm many of those fish have already begun moving to deeper parts of the lake.

You'll have no problem finding the fish.

I never seen the lake so clear last spring. I could not believehow deep and what you could see last spring. I would say the clarity was over 9' last year.

I will also say the previous 15 springs, the water had a darker tinge to the water....but you could still see down 5-7 feet.

Thanks for the info guys, I guess I'll just have to wait to get up there and check the water clarity myself!

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.
