I would like to thank a couple guys that were on lake washington friday afternoon. I took out my little brother and his friend who hasn't icefished befor. We were setting up on a spot that produces some nice crappies and sunfish. There were two guys that were fishing there and they were packing up to go when one of them came over and told us that the fish were biteing on a certain color and told us to try acouple holes they had that they have done good in. Well the kids had a blast catching the sunnies and when the sun hit the trees it was crappie time both of them caught acouple 10-12 inchers with some smaller ones.

Thanks again guys!!!

I also realized how hard it is to fish without a flasher, I let each one of the boys use my vexilar and lx3. Its tough fishing blind,lol!

      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
