FM Get together

3 posts in this topic

I have read the post on the FM get together. I have been to a few of the larger events, some of the smaller events, and organized a couple on some small East metro get togethers. first and foremost I have found I always had fun and met some great people each time.

What I suggest is that anyone interested in hosting a mini little FM get together is name the lake and day. From there anyone interested will be able to attend. I remember some years in the past were it seemed like a couple times every month there were some get togethers to chose from.

Its always nice to get an opportunity to get on someones home ice and learn a few new spots and of course visit with other FMers.

      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.
