Clear water lake...

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone here fished clear water lake on Lavaque rd? I am just wondering what people think of it...

I fished it last year with some success so I decided to head out on Sunday and try it this year. I got on the ice about noon with at least a dozen other portables and when I left a little after 4, I had not marked a fish, all but one other house was gone (and they were packing up), and those I talked to had the same report. I will try it again in a few days and report how that effort turns out.

Here is the only worthwhile picture of the day...somehow I think what she is saying is "why'd you drag me down here to stare at this empty hole." grin.gif

Thanks for the quick input! I have been hearing you have to work it good and long this year to pick much of anything up...

I did some hole-hoping, but not as much as I would've if I hadn't had the pooch. There were a lot of snowmobiles running wide open across the lake (and it is a tiny lake), so I didn't want her getting hit. If she hadn't been there, I would have drilled a lot more holes and used some of the ones that the others had left. That will be the plan next time.

      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
