Looking for tips or recomendation on Red Lake sleeper shacks. Never been, but trying to wrangle to troops for a new adventure. Looked around on the web and found a few but I am looking for some testemonials, been to lake of the woods past 2 years and looking for a change. Thanks for the help. Ice is right around the corner!

I would get ahold of Chad Benson, especially if your looking for a trophy Pike to go along with the Crappies/Walleyes.

He's already getting called so hurry up. As someone who fishes just about every tournament against CHAD, I highly recommend him also.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      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.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.
