Avoided a Skunk

4 posts in this topic

Yesterday I thought I would spend some time on the lake looking for some slab crappies.I fished from 2-8 and came home with a total catch of one sheepie and two small crappies.All fish were in the deeper holes and at least 20'down.You name it and I tried it with no success.Everyone I talked with on the lake had a fishless day.

But,it was a nice afternoon on the lake except for that wind.

Just to add something to this; I've been draging a Blue-Chrome shallow Shadrap (#7 I think) around the last few times out (5-8 fow). Northers, Walleyes and large White Bass (15"and over) have all bit.

I did find some 12" Perch Sunday morning along with some Slab Crappies. My next time out I will have some live bait along. grin.gif

      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.
