A long med-med/lt spinning rod with a moderate action in the 8'-10.5' area with some 8# or 10# power pro or mono. Bring some spoons like Croks and Cleos in gold/orange, blue/silver, green/silver and pink if you can find it. Also Chart/orange can be good. Connect with a good barrel swivel and your set. This time of year more fish will be hitting the shores and with all the rain we got the river mouths should open up a bit and the fish will be hitting them.

Look for a post in BWCA/Duluth forum about Looper Fsihing by Stfcatfish. It has all you will ever need to know.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
