I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again. Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.
Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather
Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active? Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred? The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing? Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?
Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.
It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...
Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.
