Ice Conditions via Denny Green

5 posts in this topic

Went to Vermilion over the weekend, Friday through Sunday. The ice conditions are what we thought they were. 9-12 inches of ice, 3-4 inches of slush covered by a foot of snow. Things started to solidify a bit on Sunday afternoon. When the fish and the fishermen both want to win, only one can win. We were limited by our mode of transportation and caught some decent Perch but no eyes. Travel wasn't easy. Some fish bit but we let them off the hook. If you want to crown 'em, crown theirs a$$es. If you want to find me, I'll be on the high road with two hands on the plow. Do you know which direction you're looking in when you have two hands on the plow? You're looking forward.

Ahhh, Denny Green. Dare I say the best coach that the Vikings have had in the last fifteen years. Saying those words, although true, sound like nails scratching a chalk board.

I hope that I didn't open a can of worms, that would make me beligerous. Another great Denny quote.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
