Walleye bite 6/27

2 posts in this topic

Well everybody we are still catching walleyes out there. Although the bite has been a little slower I was able guide four group of people over the weekend to some nice walleyes we had to work four them but presitance paid off. Much of the action came from deep water both during the day and night, we fished in 24-30ft of water with slips on green jigs tipped with big leeches, during the day gold and hammered silver leech and crawler rigs worked well. Lindy's with green gamakatsu hooks and red bead with a leech are also worth a try. Some areas putting out fish have been 4 & 5 mile gravel, The Gravel Bar, Sloppy's, deep mud out from Izatys a 1mile and a half or so in 26-30 ft of water on the edges pulling cranks and lindy's. For more info. you can email me at info@hunterwinfields.com Good luck fishing.

      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
