6 posts in this topic

Was thinking of taking my 7 and 4 year old out to Pleasant Lake tomorrow? Has anyone been fishing out there for sunfish? Don't really care to clean fish just catch a few last 2 times has been bad for dad the guide. Any info is appreciated in advance. Have a great day.

I did get out on pleasant but not much action. Sunfish would come and look at the bait but wouldn't bite. 3 hours 2 fish. oh well it was a beautiful day and the kids had fun running around on the ice. cool.gif

Where abouts on the lake did you fish? I have been having better luck down on the far end of the lake away from the access. 12ft of water. Not very big but you can catch quite a few of them.

Yup Eskimoman is dead on. I got out there a couple of weeks ago and hit 1 pike and a bunch of sunnies.

This time of year I usually have good luck with the pannies out on the north end by the access. Once the ice starts to go, most fish migrate to the warmer water, which is on the north ends of lakes, where the sun hits it the longest.

      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.
