What a year!

Finally figured out how to insert some photos. Just wanted to show some visuals from the past year at our cabin on Northern Light Lake, ON:

A nice trout through the ice in February.

Early in May the fire started the week we were opening the cabin. This is looking south towards Gunflint and Granite Lakes. 25,000 acres burned that day between Gunflint and Northern Light.

June brought some better memories, our nephew with a 22" smallie caught on a topwater lure, his first trip to Canada!

Our son with a nice "eye" in July, the only one on the big lake during that trip.

Same week in July, found some water caused by a beaver taking up residence on a creek along the trail to a favorite spot on the river looking for more "eyes".

Just wanted to share some memories, enjoy!

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         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.
