I can hardly Contain myself!!

6 posts in this topic

I am getting more and more excited for open water fishing. There is a little work to be done to the boat which will be accomplished in the next couple of weeks. New depthfinder with GPS, moving current depth finder to front of boat, doing minor maitnence and putting in some new carpet in one area where the carpet had some uneven wear. This ice needs to go so i can get out on the water at least once before finals and work starts!!

I Saw open water today on Prarie Lake near Pelican Rapids. It is open for 100+ yards from shore. Not long now.

I am in the same boat as you guys...no pun intended grin.gif. Just cant wait until the lakes open up and I can drop my boat in. This rain probably has helped speed things up a little.

      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
