Yup, you all did it again. Great big CLEAN shack, put us on fish, and we all left beautiful Red Lake smiling again. I would estimate about 50 walleyes caught with lots below the slot. Also, thanks for the bonus crappies.

People, a little birdy told me they still have openings in March for the best crappie fishing in the state, better give em' a call. wink.gif

Jonny, thanks again for taking us out to scout with you.

Kelly, keep that pole at home if you are heading out to the pub. And no more dragging welders around the yard. grin.gif

Thanks again Kelly, Patsy, and Jon. We will be back to Waskish, my 2nd home. grin.gif

We had the privilege of going out scouting with Jonny P. We caught some really nice walleye and a few crappies on this adventure with him. I hope to take advantage of the openings they still have in late febuary and march. I would highly recommend Waskish Minnow Station for your icefishing trips!!! Troy Pike grin.gif

Nice rod guys. cool.gif I know you think it's a great joke but I'm going to use it, I have just the right touch for it. grin.gif Besides my "unbreakable" fishing rod will work great if one of Foster's seals, or Foster shows up. grin.gif

I know you will use it Kelly. No foster's seal has a chance with you having a piece of iron like that while you fish with it. I would love to get a pic of your first fish caught on that club. grin.gif Thanks again for a great fishing trip. Troy Pike

Sidecar, I can't wait to see the look on YOUR face when he brings it back broken. He'll get it done, could wreck a steel ball with a rubber hammer that guy. grin.gif

Pikester, Tina and I where talking and she pointed out your clothes ALWAYS match. Not sure what to think about that, the only angler always making a fashion statement. Most go for warmth or luck, not you. grin.gif

I match the clothes when I'm out on the lake too.. But it's not too difficult with a brown carhart on. cool.gif

I have no say in what I wear anymore, the wife takes care of that. Tells what bait to use too! grin.gif

Did you catch any fish New Years Eve? More importantly, did you make it all night in the shack or head home?

Check out the fishing report. We started catching fish about 10:30 and it was non-stop until 2:30AM when we realized we where running out of bait and missed new years.

I went to sleep and Tina kept fishing until 5 AM.

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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  
    • Wheres_Walter
      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.
