Hope you had a good one Jim. Getting a year (or a decade) older is mostly a state of mind with an ache and a pain thrown in once in a while - no big deal. This summer I interviewed a couple in their mid-80's who'd been fishing Rainy in their 14' boat/15 hp motor with nobody else in the boat. They caught a couple walleyes and a half dozen pike. That image is permanently stuck in the cranium. So now you know you have more than half of your fishing life ahead of you!!

Hey Mr. DNR! How ya doing up there? Cold?

I'd be more than grateful to reach the wonderful age of 80.

I definitely do not get enough people in the restaurant that like to talk fishing. If I can't fish, might as well talk about it. As of late Rugbyguy has been it.

So come in sometime and ask for Jim!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Jim W

      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.
