Black Lake

8 posts in this topic

I havent been out to black lake in about 3 weeks and thats were i always go. I was just wondering if anyone was out there last weekend or so and wondering if the crappys have started moving to shallower water. I was hammering them in 22 fow on wax worm and crappy minnow on green jig. Any info would be great, i hope they are still in the deeper water =)

Take 15, and there are 2 spots you can drive off onto the lake.

Yea jim mule is right those are the two spots, Well i was out there on friday before that storm came through and i did not do as well as i would of liked. I usually catch between 15-30 crappys in about 20 ft of water and i went to the same spot and i caught about 15 sunnys and 1 crappy so i think the crappys are moving in to shallower water. But they are still definatly there.

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      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.
