My dad

5 posts in this topic

The past week or so I've had time once again to spend some time with my dad, even though he doesn't get along very good anymore and his health isn't that great, the passion for the outdoors is still there, I love my dad more then he'll ever know and I'm proud that I'm his son, I'm very blessed to have him as a father, here are some photos of the last couple outings, the northern he caught is the biggest one of his life and I even got it on video tape, what memories!

Walli1, great photos. Congrats to your dad on the nice pike. It's always a treat when you get to fish with your dad. My father taught me how to fish and I'm thankful for that.

That's awesome Walli, glad you got out with him again. My Dad's in the same boat, and I'm always thrilled when I get to take him out with me. Take him as often as you can.

Nice post. I lost my dad a little over a year ago. He was a heck of a person and a good fisherman too. I got some video of our last fishing outing with both him and my two daughters. It's priceless.

      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.
