Stony Point Access

6 posts in this topic

I thought I saw that the stoney point campground was closed for the year but can you still use the access all year? I was thinking of trying to get out there this weekend and possibly accessing there for ice fishing.

Thanks,

Joe

Should be able to access it. If not, you can try Whipolt.

It shouldn't be closed. THe campground yes, but not stony point. Don't snowmobilers drive out of there in the winter?

Whipholt is a good alternative if there isn't a north wind.

I think that stoney point access is still open, I will check tommorrow. The water is to shallow for whipolt, you'll get stuck. Trappers Landing or Horseshoe bay will be your best bet if you don't mind a fee, this time of year I wouldn't worry about it though. Sand Point is a good option.

I launched out of Stony Point last weekend. The launch is always open, as well as the parking lot next to the launch. There is a big baracade on both the entrance and exit to the campground area.

      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
