Eel Pout ?

7 posts in this topic

Say a guy was crazy enough to go fish for these things, where would he go for a decent bite? I caught one up on LOW last weekend and one guy in our group cleaned and cooked it. Now he is crazy and want's to eat some more.

Help us try to cure him of this terrible desease and tell us a spot so we can get him over this.

Thanks.

no problem!!! wink.gif glad to help. when I'm in my perm up there, can't go a night without a rattle reel going off and having a slimer on the end. I'd love to learn how to clean them and try and cook 'em up, I've heard how good they are!! the secret will be to try and catch perch, then you'll get pout, if you try for pout, you're likely to catch eyes!!

Hey mnfishinguy,

I already posted this question. Check my post "where to catch eel pout". You'll see that Ryan V responded with the same comment but a couple of others posted with a few spots to try. We'll see you up there next weekend. Looking forward to watching you and goin fishin put up the coffin. grin.gif

Ahh yes, the coffin. Great to fish out of but it sucks to put up in the wind.

I am going to try to get out of work early on friday. Maybe 2:30 or so. I will need to talk to goin fishin and work out the details. Have you talked to him yet about the plan of attack on Friday? Not sure when you would be able to get out there on Friday and what you would like to do.

       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.

      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
