Big Fish Lake Launch

2 posts in this topic

Finally, I was able to get out to one of my favorite lakes last night. I was disappointed to find that the approach to the ramp had a two foot by two foot hole in the pavement. I would say that the hole was between 4 to 6 inches deep. This hole has been getting bigger for the past couple of years and yet nobody has done anything to fix it. I even joked with the CO that was there that maybe someone could get it fixed.

Who is in charge of the maintenance of the public access? And how difficult is it to take some gravel and a bucket of tar to at least patch it? I sure wouldn't mind it getting fixed and I don't think that the other 20 rigs which pulled boats out last night would mind either.

As far as the catch...1 small Northern and a hefty Bass in 23 FOW.

I was out on Big Fish yesterday and caught a few the best was the bonus dog fish that went about 5 pounds. When we left we found ourselves to be commenting on that hole as well as the one a little further up as well. I don't know who is in charge of fixing them but I wish they would fix it!

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
