What Can You Clear???

4 posts in this topic

If you are wide open, trimmed out as best you can, what is the MINIMUM depth you can buzz before the skeg will catch?

I can stay on plane and trim up quite a bit before I get too much cavitation and foul out.

Assuming I would not have to turn (can't do it trimmed up so far) if I was on full plane and trimmed to the max that I could before losing power (or water to my cooling system) I would clear...

16"....I think.

This is a 17' Lund with 70 hp tiller.

What can you (or do you think you can) clear before knocking up?

Sorry guys, my computer crashed and I had to start clean. Not a newbie, but here none-the-less.......

Yeah, leave it to Riverpro to attempt to set the depth standard on an apples to oranges standard. Do clarify........prop vs. jet. Glad to hear you can do it RP. Love that stretch of river and wish I could do it in my other boat but the canoe will have to do. You danged fancy show off!!!!!! grin.gif

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
