ratmn218,

I have been wondering about this lake myself. I haven't fished it in about 3 years. I would guess that a snowmobile would get you were ever you needed to go at this point if it's holding up like other area lakes.

As I'm sure you know this is a very small body of water. With that said I wouldn't expect there to be many replies about it. If you have anytime off during the week next week and want to give it a look. I would be up for a trip out. You can either post here or e-mail me if you have some time off and are interested in heading up that way.

My mode of travel is by wheeler.

OK you two! do me a favor and let me know if I can run my wheeler up the river to the lake. Dont have a sled, but my 700 King quad with mud lights can go through a bit of snow. I love that lake, no PEOPLE and nice fish.Its a drive but its worth it. Thanks!

From what I hear the river channel is fine but soon as it opens up into the lake it’s horrible. Even with a snowmobile you get stuck, the person who told me about it turned around and went to Fish lake and got a limit of Crappies and a few walleyes.

I was thinking it might be that way. well hope we get some cold weather to firm it up. Might have to wait untill March.But then you have to deal with the river .

      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
