When i moved into our house here on pulaski in 1996, all you would catch were little northerns. Now most of the northerns are gone and all you will catch are rockbass. I was just wondering what happened to all of the northerns and why are there so many rockbass live in the lake.

No one likes rockbass and people speer and pickle northerns. It has gained popularity as an ok lake for northerns. With fewer of the slimers, mabye we'll see bigger ones.

I like Pulaski because I can catch quite a variety. I anchored outside the deep side of a weed edge and caught several walleyes, northerns, lots of decent sized sunnies, some small laregemouth bass, and of course rockies.

Funny I was in Canada a couple of weeks ago catching northerns or jacks as they call them and when I came back it is harder now to judge fish. I caught a 23" northern and my brother thought for sure it was only 16-17" because it was so skinny. I probably only was 1.5lbs and a 23" in Canada was at least 4lbs. Skinny suckers for sure.

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.
