Sweet Video--- nice execution all around with camera man and fisherman. Almost looks like a Hamm's commerical from years' ago with the sun coming off the "Sky Blue Waters"

Ive never fished for lakers but would like to try sometime.Im always up on vermilion so thinking about trying burntside sometime. Can you catch any on burntside off shore anywhere this time of year? What are some good techniques for shore fishing lakers?

Red For Shure NL, likely we'll talk at pool league. Fer shure...

411, the canoe is a Bell, Seliga Tripper. Best of both worlds, at 48# it floats like a cargo canoe & cuts like a Wood/ Canvass.

Nice stuff, Cas. grin.gif

Vwally, as of this weekend, inland laker season is closed. It'll open again in January and close in March. It will open again on walleye opener in May. Plenty of folks catch nice lakers off their docks on Burntside in May as long as they are near deep water. A client at Camp Van Vac along Bside's south shore caught one in the teens and one in the 20s either last spring or the spring before by casting a dead cisco off the dock and letting it sit on the bottom.

Cas, neat video, I should use my cameras video function more often.

Silver Minnow as in Johnson Silver Minnow?

I might have to give them a try this winter vertical jigging Lakers.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
