From previous posts, it seems like the SE end is the place to look.

Fished the south east Friday in the cold temps. 15 ft. of water. About a month ago, we had great fishing in the same location for the 10+ crappies and a few sunnies. Friday things were kinda reversed. The sunnies were stacked and aggresive they even made the rod jump. Had the best luck stay'n high, the 8+ sunnies would jump from the bottom and smack it. I did muster a few nice crappies, but they wanted the dead stick with a minnow. For the cold weather, I was suprised. I wasn't exspecting alot of action, but it sure kept me busy. Glow Diamond jig, bent out hook and euros produced the most fish.

      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
