I own 40 acres almost exactly half way between Crosby and Emily, then about 3 miles down a dirt road, so I will be going there.

All the way to a little south of Zimmerman on private land. Long 15-20 minute drive for me. Wife likes it though, I come home after the morning hunt and go back for the evening hunt.

10 miles West of Pine River. It's also my son's 1st time deer hunting - It's also his 9th birthday on Sunday. Glad the weather is going to be decent!

trackerbrent,

Sounds just like me and I am in same area. I am west of Orrock a couple of miles on private land. I am still tossing up the idea of going to Mille Lacs fishing and hunt the second weekend, but we will see. I feel being this close to Shurburne Nation Wild Life Ref., opening morning is the best chance at a good sized buck. It seems like after the first day, they only move at night.

USPENAMC,

I have heard that Rum River is a mad house also! I have been told, if you want a good shot at a good sized buck on public land, you have to go above Macgregor area. Unless you deer drive and go into interior. I drove by Rum River on the Third weekend a couple years back and is was still very busy and a lot of blaze orange! I have never hunted it though!

Benson on 340 acres of CRP surrounded by woods, water, corn and beans. Oh yeah, and not a office chair in site, just a wood plank and some clean air. I just hope that 12 point buck sees it the same way.

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
