Even though winter has hammered an extra heavy duty lid on the lake this year we can still think about the world beneath that cap. The fish are there. And the Opener is coming. is counting down the hours. And when January makes the fishing a little tougher, the next best thing can be a fish story! Here's an excerpt:

After about 15 minutes I posed the question while looking him straight in the eye and stating his name, "_____, you know how big that fish really is, don't you?" He responded by saying, "yes I do, do you?" I then said, "according to my calculations it is at least 19.53-lbs." He then said, "You are close. It's 19-lbs., 10-ozs."

It's pretty cold on the lake today. It's not my intention to post a daily weather report but it's this frigid stuff that motivates the year-rounders to precisely announce the temperature on their back porch. I had -23 degrees with a nice breeze. Beat that.

The Minnesota DNR is proposing new northern pike regulations (to take effect on Opening Day 2003) on a number of Minnesota lakes. Lake Vermilion is in this group. The proposal for Vermilion is to implement a 24-36" protected slot. This DNR web page has additional details.

With our recent weather pattern, we have undoubtedly been making thick lake ice become even thicker. I recently read of chilly temperatures like these described as "marrow-cracking cold".

Officially, per the National Weather Service, it was -17 degrees this morning. I'm sure some local folks could report -20 and beyond. Unless you are a year-round area resident, it is almost certainly warmer where you are.

Welcome to Lake Vermilion Real! Enough test posting already, it's time for the INAUGURAL POST!

My first order of business has to be the recognition of the person whose efforts have made this web site possible.

It's a short story... I got a Christmas present from our eldest son. The gift was a small piece to paper upon which was written the words: "Fill in the blank," So I did. And a website is born.

The evolution process was not without pain. Some disagreement , some conflicted opinion, some artistic preference. Some compromise, some concession. All constructive discussion.

From a grateful and proud father, "Thank you, Than". It's a wonderful gift.

Now, get back to college.
