No problem Sparcebag,

For lunch and dinner I'm sure we can grill some dead fatheads and suckers whatever is avialable, for drinking there is plenty of minnow water iin the tanks (full of flavour just like Mineral water I think) and as far as pay, I suppose all the dead minnows you want...........sound fair enough 'buddy O' pal' ..............hee...........hee grin.gif

Boy, it did took you while to reply, must be busy catching those little wallie on Diamond......

Later,

J.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!

      I liked the lake vermilion and lake vermilion resort and tourism pages so got this update.  If you went to the resort association web page you could probably get on their mailing list.   http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Lake-Vermilion-Area-Trails-Update-1-20-17.html?soid=1102498830363&aid=G5yKEZiNmkU Lake Vermilion Area Trail Update, 1/20/2017 There is a total of about 22-26" on the ground. Grooming is taking place and trails are in good condition. The latest updates are below... ARROWHEAD TRAIL 1-18-17. Local snow depth is 24-30" Base is 3-5". The entire Arrowhead is groomed and in fair to good condition except for a two-mile portion going north over a swamp from the Orr South Grant-in-Aid trail. We hope to have this last section groomed by the weekend. Please use caution when traveling these trails. Logging is ongoing on the Arrowhead Trail north of Hwy 1, north of Hoodoo Lake, and north of the Elephant Lake Rd. (Conditions reported from DNR)   BEARSKIN TRAIL 1-17-17 update: Nature has been working in our favor! We have been grooming everything regularly and conditions are very nice! The Bearskin has been groomed and is in good shape - watch for overhanging brush in some spots. The Tim Corey has NOT YET been groomed as of this update. (Conditions provided by the Cook Timberwolves Snowmobile Club)   
      LAKE VERMILION AND SOUDAN UNDERGROUND MINE STATE PARKS 1-19-17. Local snow depth is 22-26" Base 3-5". Snowmobile trails in the park are groomed and open. The Alaska shaft trail is cleared of trees and open for non-motorized users. (Conditions provided by the DNR)
      PUTNAM & FISHING LAKES TRAIL 1-18-17. Local snow depth is 20-24" Base 2-4" . The Putnam/Fishing Lakes Trail is groomed and in fair condition. (Conditions provided by the Minnesota DNR)    STONY SPUR 1-19-2017 update: Depth 18" Base - 2-4" Groomed - partially Condition - poor THE HIDDEN BAY portion the trail linking up to Stony Spur has been closed due to logging.

The entire Taconite from Ely to Hwy 73 is groomed and in fair to good condition, save for a small section of open water between Big Aspen and Pfeiffer Lake.

      TOMAHAWK TRAIL 1-19-17 Snowfall Depth 18" Base - 4-6" Trail is cleared through to the North Shore from Ely. Most of the trail is groomed; however, swamps and wetlands have not yet frozen so groomers are unable to do that portion of the trails. Trails are in fair to good condition. (Conditions provided by the Ely Chamber) VOYAGEUR-CRANE LAKE TRAIL 1-18-17: The weather is just beautiful and so are the trails. All the trails are being groomed and the Arrowhead is back to it's normal schedule. There are still a few beaver ponds that we are not taking the groomer over but as mentioned before we are grooming up to those spots from both sides. It takes extra time but we want the trails at there best. (Conditions provided by the Voyageur Trail Society)
      WOLF TRACK TRAIL 1-17-17 update: Nature has been working in our favor! We have been grooming everything regularly and conditions are very nice! The Wolf Track trail has been groomed and is in nice condition. (Conditions provided by the Cook Timberwolves Snowmobile Club)
