I made my own last year, bought the 1/4" polycarbonate from a glass shop in the area, made a cardboard template and figured the angle of bend I needed then took all that to a metal shop that had a "break" to bend it. its bent Cold. (a "tinners" break will not be heavy enough to bend it)

I then bought some rubber from the local surplus store and some alluminum pop rivits and a couple feet of 3/4" x 1/8" aluminum for backer for the rubber. even made the cutout for the trolling motor, they look good and work great. all for about $75-80 and a couple hrs time.

I made my own also from polycarbonate(lexan) sheet. I used 2" hand clamps so I could put them on mutiple boats. Great when we rent a boat in Canada and portage in. Just bring em along and stay dry. I used a heat gun to bend mine. Polycarb bends at about 270 degrees F. Mcmaster-Carr has cut pieces 12 x 24 for $17. DO NOT USE ACRYLIC SHEET!!! It can break easily.

Whitecap splashguards at www.whitecapmfg.com cost would be $70.00 for one side. Link to the website is also under the mille lacs forum.

      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.
