Pine River Walleye Stripping

5 posts in this topic

Checked out pine river today. The cold weather pretty much shut down the run so far. Lotza suckers and 49 walleyes today. River temp was low 40's. The run should really pick up next week with the warmer temps.

Suckers are usually last to run...you sure you didn't miss the eyes???

They overlap abit, but walleyes are always in there and do their thing before suckers do.

So if the suckers are heavy, the eyes should be on the way out.

It is not uncommon to see suckers in the nets along with walleyes. The walleyes have just started the run.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
