SS 9 IRON

HOT!

2 posts in this topic

Good day fellow anglers. I find myself up at Mille Lacs for work this morning and I chose not to bring the rig. It's still got a full tank of gas and has retained it's shiny appearance. That being said I'm regretting leaving it behind. I took my mother instead....What you say, your mother. Yea, I know but with pop having passed I figure a miny road trip would do her well. So I have made plans to fire up the old merc on Sunday. THe little lady and I will go to church Saturday night leaving my Sunday open (please understand I've missed a lot of services of late and there's much me and the big guy upstairs have to work out).

But I DIGRESS this is a fishing post for heavens sake so lets get down to brass tacks...In this heat where on earth will a fella find some fish. Is it time to try the old lead core. Leeches, worms, minnows. What's the score here. What's working for you guys. I've been reading the posts and it seems a variety of things are producing. I'm going to become an endagered specie if I take the little lady out and don't produce some fish. She stands a bit under 5 feet but man she's feisty! Anyhow, I'm really just killing time up here in Mille Lacs waiting for my business to be completed. Look forward to seeing you all on the river.

      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.
