Artical from the AP!

DULUTH - A Duluth woman was rescued from the frigid waters of Lake Superior on Sunday after she fell from the deck of a 30-foot sailboat while sailing alone, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said.

Julie Ann Rosen, 52, was recovered from the water after the sailboat was spotted grounded just south of the Aerial Lift Bridge shortly before 5 p.m., Sgt. Wade Rasch said. She was in the water for about an hour.

The sheriff's Rescue Squad located Rosen, who was not wearing a life jacket, swimming about 1,000 yards from the boat. She was taken by ambulance to St. Mary's Medical Center for treatment of hypothermia.

Gotta hand it to the Sheriff's Dept and their quick response - sure hope she learned her lesson about life jackets, especially when you're out on the water by your self.

I'm always amazed at the kind of job the water patrols, USCG/Sheriff's Dept do for us. They are top-notch!

      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.

      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.
