Special Thanks to Bear Paw Guide Service

3 posts in this topic

I just wanted to say thanks to Bear Paw guide service. I called last minute sunday morning looking for a day house for that day. They were full. I told the gentleman I spoke with that I was hoping to get my 3 year old boy, my 6 year old girl and my wife on some fish. Even though his houses were full, he told us a spot to try since we had a portable. We started fishing at 1pm and fished until 6pm. We ended up with 50 -60 walleyes according to my 6 year olds "tally" sheet. The kids had an absolute ball pulling in all those fish. I unfortunatley never did get your name but thanks again and you will be my first call when looking for a rental house in the future.

It was probably Steve, if not his son Tyler. You are correct he is a very helpful and accommodating man. I have gotten to know him from many trips up to Red in both summer and winter and he is always willing to point me to a hot bite. He has also been able to give me deals when I come up for work by myself on rentals. The smallest he has got is a 3-man and Steve was able to compromise and charge me less than what he normally gets for a 3-Man. From my personal experience Kelly and Jon P., Hillmans, and Bear Paw are all good people.

      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
