Lake Superior this weekend?

4 posts in this topic

Whos going out saturday/sunday?

I'll be out both days...probably be on the water by 5am Saturday morning, and launching off Rice's, head down the bay to the superior entry, and out from there. Been doing ok about 50-65' down on spoons in 80-90 FOW for Lakers.

PS Pfister - Got myself 400' downrigger cable now, and also 12# balls (ya, i know guys, they are really tough to carry, and rough on the legs!). I also stuck in 10 scotty's rod holder mounts, and have 6 holders + 2 on the riggers.

Getting close to a decent setup~

Woodie, sorry to hear about the rash-like condition on the insides of your thighs. grin.gif

Good luck this weekend. I'm with all you L.S. guys in spirit, but I'll be working.

      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

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
