Wow, thanks guys for the great welcome!

I was on my way to Proctor for the stock car races when I found the rod. I really hope the owner See's this because it's a expensive set up. I'll be putting it in the Duluth news paper as well.

I live in Tower and spend some time on the big-v, so I have room in my rod locker for another rod but, the person that lost it would be out a lot of money not to mention that it could be his favorite rod! And I have to be honest about it and give the person a chance at getting it back.

I did lose a rod about two weeks ago. It was a guide series pro select rod 7' MH with a Abu Garcia 6600C3 reel and it also had a rod sock on it. If it is mine let me know or shoot me an email at hols0094@d.umn.edu

Jaws, let me be the first to say your an honorable person for returning this equipment. Many would have celebrated their luck in finding it and put it in the rod rack at home. Hats off to you.

Great job Jaws!

For those who use rod socks make sure you strap them rods down. All those socks do is turn your rods into kites. I quit using them for this reason unless Im putting the rods in the rod lockers.

Im glad you guys got your rods back.

Wow guy's thanks cool.gif I guess it does pay to be honest!

I guess I looked at it this way, the person that lost the rod I'm sure was pretty bummed out when he noticed it was gone. I sure would have been! frown.gif It's great that we found the owner and made another fishing buddy happy, that's what life's about. ( I'm sure some of you guy's asked around also, so hat's off to yous also for the help! ) Until next time, Good luck fishing and take care!

There is NO WAY Jaws could feel as good about finding/scoring a lost rod and reel as he does finding the owner and handing it back. We should all be so lucky to be on either end of this "transaction".

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Thanks for sharing those pics ... really enjoyed that!!     Bob

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.
    • Muskies
      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff
