Big Marine report

2 posts in this topic

Not much to report frown.gif Saw some nice flocks of divers, and there are a ton of geese sitting on the west shore, but nothing came in or even close this morning. Friend is still out there, so hopefully he will get some shooting and report back here.

BTW - has anybody who hunted there in the past about two weeks found a Bushnell Range finder out on the island or the parking lot? Black, in a case. Thanks if you have...

Good luck, I am going deer hunting this weekend, out west. I did see a nice 10 point chasing a doe this morning going into the access - they both almost hit my truck and I had to wait for them to quit frolicking around! Was cool.

I did not stay too long after you two left. Saw THREE more ducks after you left. Even the loon went away! I had a bit of a hard time getting the boat on the trailer in the cross wind but finally got it on. I think the north ramp would have been easier today.

      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.
