Matt Chapman dies......

6 posts in this topic

Just found out today that a friend of mine and contributor

to North Country Outdoors Radio Matt Chapman died last

week.

He had breakfast every day at River Bend, wrote the

fishing report on the River Bend Website, worked for

Ballards Resort and Lake of the Woods Taxidermy.

He had on-going health issues and passed away at his

home. A sportsman all of his life with lots of great

stories to tell. I will miss him.

I didn't see this until now. That sure as heck stinks. Not sure if Matt posted much in here (he may have, but I didn't know his handle), but he didn't miss a single post. Anything I said anything in the LOW forum, Matt was sure to ask me about it when I next was at LOW. He was sharp as a whip and seemed to be a really nice guy.

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      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 ]
