New Way to Report Tagged Mille Lacs Walleyes

8 posts in this topic

Just a heads up that the DNR is taking Walleye Tag Reports online. Mille Lacs alone has several thousand fish tagged so its worth mentioning

Tagged Fish Reporting

This way the DNR gets the information faster and you can get feedback faster.

Don't expect to hear from them anytime soon, I sent the info on one over a month ago and haven't heard anything back yet.

If anybody caught any tagged fish this weekend but sure to report them. I believe there was a round of tagging done a few weeks ago, but can't remember or confirm.

One was caught in my boat yesterday.

Did the online thing yesterday and got a call on it today.

They told me they where working on it and hoped to have it fixed very soon.

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya

      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.
