Fishing in the rain

2 posts in this topic

Looks like we may need rain gear for our trip to pembina this sunday. We changed our plan to stay in drayton...We will now be staying in hallock. Do cat's still bite much in the rain or after a cold front??? any info would be nice.

"Hey Hanson" Thanks for that little info on sturgeon. What you said sounded much like what i hooked. Going to go in at 175 bridge 1st nite,pembina 2nd and for tues we will go wherever we did best.

Hey man iffin you are planning on dropping boat in at the Golden Grain access it'll be a struggle unless you have a small carry/drop in type. Water has been falling for near 30 days and is quite low, the ramp is silt covered. Ran first few Cattin' trips of this late summer season this week and last and fishing is so-so so far. 2 or 3 foot of increased water level would help, doubt thats gonna happen? I had such high hopes for this season with the high water we saw in early summer too, never know could shape up nicely and it always gets better in September. Lot's of frogs out thatta way this year anyhow.

Regards.....fiskyknut

      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.
