GEM kids camp report and pics 8/6-10

3 posts in this topic

I went up north for my third fishing camp this year, unfortunately it was a smaller group this week because we had some last minute cancellations, but the fish were ready, we got lots of nice bass, pike and panfish. We got them on Makiplastics, ringntubes, spinners. We also had some topwater bites on buzzbaits and poppers...

Hey Cyberfish,

Nice fish pics, great job to the kids. Caudal (tail) fins and mouth positions are really helpful on Clupepids. When the lower jaw is shorter than the upper...lake whitefish. When the lower jaw is longer than the upper...Tullibee (Cisco). Tails that are tall and narrow are generally whitefish, short and fat are Ciscoes.

Hard to tell from the picture, but still a great catch. That wasn't on Ten Mile or Woman was it? I know GEM operates on a bunch of nice lakes with cisco and whitefish in them.

Keep up the good work.

        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.
