When we got on the water it was 38 and when we left it was 34. It sucks to put the livewell plug in when the water is that cold blush.gif

we were out tonight (Thursday night) and you are correct about the water temps...plus, the water just outside Eddy's was forming skim ice as we came in at 10:30 so that sometimes our lures were riding on top of the ice! Man, was it cold!! We were out from 4pm to 10:30 p.m. and only managed two eaters, but an added bonus was a 47.5, FAT Musky that probably would have tipped the scales for sure past 30 lbs (she was chowin' down big time for winter!) She hit a HJ #12 Firetiger in 6 FOW. Sorry, no camera. Released unharmed.

Did someone say skimice? I'm headed up sat. and hoping the warmer weather keeps the lake from skimming.

      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
