dnr netting

6 posts in this topic

About what time does the DNR start netting the walleyes in the river. I hear it is pretty cool to see? I would like to check it out and see some of the big walleyes they get. This is by no means an addmition from me that I do not see big walleyes on my own. I just wanted to make sure that no one reads into this. blush.gif

The walleye netting could start as early as around the first of April.

I live right accross the river from the hatchery and will keep you informed when the netting starts.

Make sure you bring a good pair of sun glasses, it really helps to see the piggies. laugh.gif

I think I'll be up Easter weekend. Any chance of a Sucker sale so early?

Dtro,

There is a chance that the DNR may be trapping at the Hatchery by that weekend.

It appears that the river will be wide open by mid-week.

The Hatchery has positioned the trap net holding floats on the ice already and will probably get an early start this spring! smile.gif

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.
