I was out last night from 9:00 til 11:00 on the south side cribs, 4" of solid ice.Did not need an extention,Caught 6 crappie, 2 huge pikers and tons of nice walleye.Had a great time fish were really hitting but then my wife woke me up complaining that I was mumbling in my sleep I got another one, wow look at the size of that one, grab the gaff... Looking forward to the real deal:):):) Come on cold weather with NO WIND... Phil

It won't be long. I will be up there tomorrow and will check it out. A friend of mine was up there 2 weeks ago and walked out past the reeds he said (figures about 200 feet) before it started cracking and making him nervous. DH was by yesterday and said it is totally frozen over.

Maybe someone up there would have a better idea? Like I said I'll be there tomorrow... south side will check out it and see.

      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.
