one weekend, one hundred miles what would you do?

6 posts in this topic

Ok, I have this weekend and want to get on the water one last time in the old scow before I trade her in but I want to catch a butt load of perch, or some eater size eyes. I am setting a 100 mile limit. Where should I go?

Wherever you go bring your rain gear! Who knows though, the weather guessers are only right about 20% of the time. wink.gif

Mil Lacs would be good for eyes but that slot will make you bang your head. I would try Winni or Bowstring for both perch and eyes.

Fish is putting out some nice perch right now.

100 miles puts you in the U.P.........you can find what you're after in Lake Gogebic.

      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.
