The temps on cutfoot have been from 51-53 so I am guessing most area lakes will be about the same.

Thanks, You all were right on the degree. I found 52 on Pokegama Sat eve. and heard of 53 on Deer. I think it is 5-10 degrees above normal for this time of year. I remember frozen swamps and small lakes around deer opener.

Sounds like global warming is about to elimante our hard water fishing. confused.gif-

I was fishing Ball Club Friday(19th) and Sat., temps on my graph show 55 to 56. I know Ball Club is usually one of the last lakes to freeze up so that may be why it is warmer than the reading others are getting....or my temp is off, I've never checked it.

Lot's of duck hunters, they seemed to be getting a lot of shooting, especially on Friday. I was mostly casting for northerns, didn't get anything big, lot's of 4 to 6#, biggest boated was 7# 9oz. and was caught on a big creek chub on a quick-set rig.

      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
