Looking for fish

4 posts in this topic

My uncle just came in from Montana and would like to get him on some hot spots. We are heading to Walker this week-end for the eelpout festival mostly for the party. Next week though we would like to do some serious fishing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Red lake would be a good day trip or Winnie. I would check out the forums on those two lakes. You can usually get some good info on the locations etc. I fished Red and went out on hillman's road about 7 miles and fished 13 feet of water. I also went to winnie and caught a lot of perch, some nice size ones, and a few keeper walleyes. Went out of High Banks resort. The people there were really nice. Hope this has helped some!

if you are thinking about the slab fest i would do it. first off, you can't beat fishing on Red, and secondly, fishing with FM members would be a blast. If you have never caught a red lake crappie you are in for a treat

      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.
