Casino Report

Went out by the Casino today. A long walk for a few fish. Had the camera down all day, and never had a moment when there wasn't small perch in the camera. Matter of fact, I didn't see one perch on the camera that would have been worth keeping. Ended up with 2 slot eyes 21 and 24, an eelport, and a northern that was taged...Kind of cool.

Other than that, I only seen two other eyes on the camera all day...pretty slow out there.

I talked to a guy when I was packing up by my truck, and he said he was all over the place, and only caught one walleye.

It must be slow for a lot of people. I just need the ice to grow. I don't have a atv and am sick of walking, and sick of not getting to the places I want to get to. We'll try again next week.

I got a tagged 31" northern in Isle Bay on Saturday. Kind of excited to see the stats on it. It was very fat, wish I could have gotten a weight on it. Other than that, very slow.

I think some of the resorts will give you a ride out to some off shore structure. I know Appledoorn's does, others probably do as well. Seems like a good option if you're looking to get to a particular location. Cheaper than buyin a sled or ATV anyway!

Isn't the slot 20" and under for keepers???

I meant that they were in the protected slot limit (20-28), as in, they are still swimming in the lake, and were not kept.

I should have worded that post a little better. I didn't want to make it sound like you kept the Eyes.

I was wondering if I missed something on the Winter Slot.

No hard feelings I hope.

      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.

      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.
