thank you Kelly P and Jonny P

6 posts in this topic

Huge thanks to Kelly P and Jonny P for the plow work over the weekend. Kelly plowed us a new spot on saturday (green wheelhouse with white trim and tundra pickup), and we were rewarded with a crappie. Fished friday-monday morning, 30 walleyes and one nice perch. Seeing Jonny with the plow on monday morning was a welcoming sight. One the best experiences we have had on red, mainly due to Kelly and Jonny. If we ever need a sleeper they will be the first people we will call. Thanks again.

I was just as happy to see you guys! You two where the end of the road and the old 1ton did a great job but those two days put her in the ICU last night. Lots of very tired plow trucks after the steady snowfall, drifting and sub zero temps we have had this winter.

It always spooky when it warms up and the trucks start thawing out,parts just start dropping off...amazing what frozen ice and snow does to hold a truck together. \:D

I watched you set up Friday and you worked hard to not crowd any one. You earned my respect right there. I was more then happy to plow you out a new place to try Sat. I expected more crappies there with "Labsville" and Scott-z 1/4 mile away in one direction and Barbelboy and Blackshack 1/4 mile away the other way. But as has happened many times this year the crappies were smarter then me. grin.gif

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
