2 posts in this topic

I just returned from a coworkers property on the mighty minnesota upstream from the jordan bridge a ways he owns about a 300 yard stretch on the minnesota which is pretty much featurless exccept for 1 or 2 good sized snags jsut upsream the river hooks and makes an nice bend adn just downstream does teh same thing, am rather new to the river adn was wondering if these bends would be a good place to start with a slipsinker rig complete with a chub or sometine there is also a small creek that enters tejh river just upstream of his land would this be a good place to try as well any tips would be appreciated thanks much

a couple snags and a creek mouth? Sounds like prime fishing area to me. Are the snags located close to any deeper water? Probably quite a variety of species in those areas too, especially the creek mouth.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      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.
