Lake Vermilion hatchery activities for 2018 are going to wrap up today, taking only 3 days to collect the stripped eggs and fertilizer.  We are glad we didn’t put off our annual visit one more day as it would have been too late.  LOTS of nice big walleyes.  See for yourself.  This video give you a bird’s eye view of the exciting work going on at the Pike River Hatchery.  The different nets are filled with walleyes in various stages of “readiness”.  They are checked with ripe ones going into the green bin while unripe ones go through the white funnel.  The “ripe” ones go to the table where they are milked with their contributions being collected in the basins.

Don’t know about you, but we are ready for some fishing.

Stop wishing….Come fishing!
