Just kidding. Nice to see you this weekend. Did you finaly get into them on sunday? When I left the spanish armada I went over to the south side of Moose and did pretty well. A few slot fish released and a couple of keepers to fill my limit. See you on the water in a couple of weeks. I have a musky tournament this weekend on Cass so I won't be on the lake. The fish are now safe LOL

Cliff,

If you don't mind me asking...what depths are you getting the walleyes on these days? Still jigs/lindy's and minnows?

I will be up on the East end this weekend.

Thank you.

FL,

I am still using lindys and jigs with minnows.I carry a varity of minnows each day. Fatheads,pike suckers, and rainbows. The walleyes have been changing their minnow type and size preference daily!

This week I have gotten fish in 9 ft. to 26 ft. of water.

I suspect that there are fish shallower and also deeper if you find where they are feeding.

I got a few nice fish last week in 28 ft. to 33 ft. of water on jigs/minnows.

      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
