Whiskey Flats?

4 posts in this topic

I have a little hot spot out around the whiskey flats marked on gps, and its getting about time to try it again. I was wondering if anyone has any reports from that area, and if I am going to be able to get out there by truck?

Hi Jr,

Trucks were out there last weekend (and so were the fish by

the way) If you tell me your spot, I will check it for you

once in a while if you like.

It all depends on the crack at south tip if you can get out there or not. Springsteel has a road plowed to South tip, beyond that there is a somewhat trail out to the flats. You have to be careful picking your spots were your driving or you could be stuck big time. I had a friend that moved a house off last Sunday from the flats and said it was kind of hairy doing it. They didn't want the house stuck out there with the crack being the way it is.

      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.
