Done for season!!

3 posts in this topic

Well I pulled my boat home for the season!! I tired going out Saturday, but was just too rough for my 18ft 1976 Starcraft!! I kept boat at my brothers in Hermentown, so didnt have to pull up every weekend, but with work getting busy in fall, and hunting seasons coming up just dont have time to go anymore, I wish i did. So till next year I guess, good luck to everyone who still can, keep me or us posted. Hey one last question?? Do you guys use the smelt, sucker thing all summer up there? or is it certain times of year?? Thanks

The lake will still be there next year. Hopefully the surface fishing will be a little longer next spring.

I usually don't start fishing meat till the lakers go deep and on the bottom.

      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.
