Where Are they??

2 posts in this topic

I am going to look for some bigger snortherns for C&R this weekend in the dalton area =smaller lakes. How deep are they laying these days. I have not found any decent sized ones shallow only hammer handles. Anybody catching any and how deep? I have never had success while trolling deeper for northerns. But it seems like now would be a good time to try. What do u like to use? I am pumped for a 2 day weekend.

Try sucker minnows in about 18-20 fow. Got some nice ones the other night on a small lake outside of Alex trolling for eyes. The big northerns were bitting off our snells at the boat using jumbo leeches, swithced over to steal core leaders and sucker minnows and had a blast. Good luck grin.gif

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
