LAUNCH

7 posts in this topic

I want to take a launch out yet this year, but have never done it and am not sure where to go out of. Does anyone have any pointers? Would like to stay on the East side preferably. Thanks for the advice.

Check out Appledorns. An FM sponsor!!!!

They are on the SE side and I'm fairly sure launches come and go from there.

FYI- It's less than 1 1/2 hours to Appledorns from St. Francis.

I don't know if they will be running launches out of there anymore this year. Remember seeing them pull the launch boat this weekend? They might, but if you really want to get into some fish, going out with Tony Roach would probably be a better bet. Whatever your choice, make sure it is set up for the evening, probably two hours before and after sunset.

If a launch doesn't work for you, let me know. Send me an e-mail and perhaps I could help you out, depending on how many people we'd be talking about.

      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
