laker outfit.

I need to pick up some stuff for lakers. the problem is I forgot just about every thing that was told to me at the fish lake.

mostly, what length rod- i assume longer for outside, short for inside?

lures- size, type, color?

line- 12 lb mono- 15-30 lb power pro?

flouro leaders? I have heard yes and no.

how much line do I need on my tip ups?

thanks for the help. Instead of posting this in the B-side bash forum i figured Id make a new thread to keep things more organized.

There is a string from last year thats tells you in detail, everything you want to know. Tried to do a search just now, but the search isn't working tonight. Try searching in the morning and you will find everything you need to know.

The forum is in the middle of being upgraded and some functions are temporarily out of order. The search feature is one of them. I stuck the Laker Gear and Tactics thread on top.

Thanks Tom.

I've made a lot of my rods so it was hard to give a definite description as to the action and weight on a laker rod

Being in deeper water that creates line drag and heavier lures, I don't want any mush from the rod on my lifts. I'm very picky that way. I also want a rod that'll load up nicely along with sensitivity.

I picked up a Jason Mitchell 36" Makinaw medium heavy in spiral wrap this fall. I'll be using a C3 or a Penn 920 levelwind on that rod. They do offer that rod in a spinning series as well. Of coarse you won't need the spiral wrap then. I think this rod will do what I want, can't wait to break it in.

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282
