Fishing vs. Death

10 posts in this topic

Would life be worth living without fishing or some other diversion like it? How could we rationalize our existence without fun?

Life without fun? You must not be married.

That's funny! Actually I am married, and have been married so long that I have well developed senses of doing what I want anyway despite criticism, selective hearing, and squirreling away money for my own pet projects. I also have an acquired ability to talk about things that I don't want to talk about or hear about, and that's what keeps our marriage strong.

Questor,

How strong would your marriage be if your wife read that post?

No change. She has her own antics.

I think fishing is instinctive like hunting/gathering. Life would not be possible without sustainance so you would be doing that in one form or another if you are alive.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
