This Weekend - LOW

3 posts in this topic

I will be going to LOW for the first time this weekend. I will be staying at a resort about 3 miles up the Rainy River. I have GPS and a chip. Can anyone suggest some areas and tactics that could be effective this time of the year? We are targeting 'eyes.

Thanks,

JDM

Reading previous posts will tell you alot. Riggin' -n- Rocks seem to be the spots of choice lately. If its your first time, watch the weather closely. 3-4 footers come up in a matter of minutes. The rocks are a bit of a haul from Wheelers.

I went riggin out of Rocky Point on Sunday and pounded the eyes. Nothing real big but all nice eaters. We were about four or five miles north west of Gull Rock using SR5 & SR7 fire tiger and purpledecent shad raps. Waves were relentless and pretty big for my 16 foot boat to handle but we managed.

      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
