where to take the kids.

2 posts in this topic

hey guys im going up to mille lacs with my wife, kid, parents sister and niece in a week and half. gonna bring my boat, but it sounds like they want to rent a pontoon for sunday afternoon. we want to try to let the kids into some ok fish but at the same time I want to try some nice ones too. were going to izatys so i guess the question is where is a good panfish spot on the southern end that may hold some smallies or something else nice for the elders. i was thinking in wahkon bay or just out of cove. any advice would be nice. i really wanna get some pannies on for my daughter and let her reel them in. she is almost 3 and she always talks about fishing with me.

I'm not as familiar with the panfish.. but you should do fine on the rock bars in Cove bay as long as we dont get a real tough north wind. Check the pencil reeds for the panfish and see if they are up in them.. might be some smallies in there as well.

      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
