Jason,

Thanks, as always, for your help. This will be our 10th annual Memorial Day trip to the Winni area. Very excited.

I have a question for you Jason,

Are they catching any at the dam? or how about at the mouth of little winni?

Thanks

Steve

I've had a number of our groups fishing on the opposite side of the dam (no slot size requirement there on the walleyes). Nice fish being caught just fishing from the shoreline.

Water levels were around 8' all the way to little Winnie. Just be careful near the shores. We did pretty well all the way down.

I've done really well right under the dam several times, but the conditions have to be just right. My old man tells me stories about some of the fishing he use to have "back in the day", well, not that long ago, he's only in his 50's.

       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
