Calhoun Report 12/30

4 posts in this topic

Fished Calhoun last night 3:30-7. First time out this season. 11 inches of ice. Set up in 32 feet on a steep break to start (normally a good depth there). Nothing. Not even a fish on the flasher. Moved to 17 foot weed edge. Nothing, not even a fish on the flasher. These spots normally give me something on this lake. I did pop some holes in the general area at various depths to do a bit of hole hopping and had not luck with that either. Anyone doing anything out there? Depths that are working? Steep breaks or gradual? Thanks.

We spent 7 hours out there Friday night around the sunken island just off the boat launch and got nothing. Probably only spotted 3 or 4 real fish.

I am determined now to go back and find out where they are all hiding.

I was on Calhoun tonight for about 4 hours(3-7) and got nothing. was fishing on the west side at about 15' around one of the sunken islands. i think i saw maybe 6 blips on the sonar the entire time. there have been portables out from the boat lauch almost every night though, might have to try that spot.

I was out on 1/5 with G_Man on the east side. We didn't really catch much other than lots of 4" to 5" perch. However, we did meet a very nice young man that helped let me use his camera to retreive my sunglasses that I somehow managed to drop down the hole. If you read this Jordan, THANKS!

      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
