Thanks for the comment. Went by there today and was wondering about it and what kind of fish were in it. The look of it took me back to the days of fishing the Crosby/Ironton mines. Good times. smile.gif

Lots of smaller to med size small mouths, large mouths, pans and hybrid pans...they bite on worms.. cause its a trout lake , remember no minnows, but you can use salted or canned minnows, leeches or waxies.. I just found out about leeches from the DNR.. i asked..they are live bait so it kind of confuses me... Try the Berkley power bait there.. i have the pink color, haven't tried the orange yet..but they also are biting on worms too.. off the boat landing they are in as well but watch the tree stumps to your right there..

The water level is up.

If you go to the public pier take the stairs down better that way..theres a bbq grill right there by the top of the stairs, you have to look for them..

curfew is 11 pm for trout lakes..

i am sure you know all this..

You can also cast slip bobbers off the pier to get a bit more distance. In summer I set it for about 20 feet deep, but with water temps as they are now it wouldn't have to be fished that deeply.

Just gotta pull it really tight before you clip off the extra.

Wetting before you tighten it helps as well. I've found some brands are prone to loosening up more than others. Most likely due to the thread.

I leave a little "tag" on the ends of a slip bobber knot when clipping, just enough to be able to tighten after it loosens up, but not enough to hamper casting.

So i should cut off the threat i just put on and start over? It might be better..

I slips the tread off the black plastic tube and i pulled as hard as i could, but i did clip it tight to the thread, i didn't know if casing would get tangle .. Will try again..

Thanks for the help...

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
