Trucks on little maple

3 posts in this topic

I was out on little maple today, and some people are driving their trucks out there now. I saw one guy drive his full size truck out towing his fish house, a little later another truck drove out but he quickly sped back to shore for some reason. I guess there was close to 8-10 inches of ice where I was, but I can't believe its that consistent throughout. Either way, I was out from late morning to mid-afternoon, the fishing was ok, lots of small sunnies with some decent crappies mixed in.

I was out there on Friday. My old man and I were there from 10am-noon just to get him out for the first time. Like you said you could catch all the little sunfish you wanted. Some of them were almost keepers just needed to be the next size up. One truck pulled onto the lake about 50 yds and was fishing with tip ups other than that we didn't see anymore vehicles. We went to Dan's lake in the afternoon and had 12" of ice and there were a couple of vehicles out there.

      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.

      Shields and Mazaska are now ice free at the landing.

      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.
