2006 walleye season

7 posts in this topic

I have never had the pleasure of fishing URL, however I follow your forum pretty close. Maybe I'm afraid to stop for fear I might have to partake in this clamping ritual I keep reading about. One of these days however on the way to or from LOW I've got to give those slabs a try.

Now for my question; with the upcoming walleye season in 2006 are any of the resorts expanding their accomadations to take care of the crowds that will most likely take part in this new walleye venture? I'm basically wondering about the open water season regarding boat slips, dockage etc. Continued good luck to all of you slab slayers. Bill

Thanks Neiko. I would think this new walleye season would provide not only some great fishng, but some tremendous economic oppurtunities as well. I've seen Westwind on our trip to LOW, looks like a nice place. good luck with the slabs. bill

I was just up to URL and fished out of Agassiz on the 10th and 11th and they told us that they hoped to have their lodge and resort available by the 2006 Walleye season see www.aglodge.com

Thanks Shooter: It looks as if things are progressing there as we head past on the way to LOW. Have you or anyone else heard any news regarding when the DNR may start to discuss or bring to light the regulations for '06? Good luck, and hang on. Bill

      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
