The last several winters I was fishing Mille Lacs a couple times a week! This year, three times total. What a bumber. I was completly pumped up for this years ice season.

I found greener pastures on lakes closer to home. I am sure I am not the only one. To bad the local economy is going to suffer more than any of us just out fishing.

couldnt agree more, I made many trips during a weeks period driving and hour and a half with luck everytime. This time Ive went 6 times caught ZERO walleyes!Fished 3 mile,shermans,7mile and all produced the same result. A battered ego,and empty tank of gas and a Hang over the next day!

I look forward to a hangover..... means I had a good time whether I caught fish or not. Me, a buddy, a fish house, beats a screaming kid with a turd full diaper. Whether I'm drinking or catching fish. Nothing but good times!

My wife and I fished out of Hunters Point on Sunday and managed to take home 8 Jumbos two of which were over 13 inches and none under 8". You could catch as many little ones as you wanted. Not the best day but not as bad as what I've been reading. Gold pimple and waxies. We fished on Flamingo and drilled at least 75 holes.

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya

      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

      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.
