The new rod showed up this morning

This rod is so cherry, it feels sweet in your hand. Definitely worth the $$$. It should be able to tame most of the crazy fish that I chase...

Congratulations on the new edition to the family grin.gif Seriously though, that is a great rod and I have a feeling I might be sharing some shoreline with you on the Brule this spring grin.gif

I agree with Porter. I could never buy a new rod in the winter, it would drive me nuts until spring! I get excited enough as it is just thinking about the rivers thawing out in the spring. Having to think about the new toys I acquired over the winter would most likely put me over the edge! grin.gif

That's going to be a sweet stick for ya.

I'm a bit envious, JP. \:\)

My rod inventory is staying the same this year unless I happen to win one at a banquet, but I'd like to pick up a good 6wt for smallies...

...and btw, you could always come down here for a weekend of winter trout fishing. Keep an eye on the forecast and pick a decently mild weekend.

my wife works every other weekend, so that cuts my opportunities in half. so far, I have enough activities to last through the early C&R season.

I'll likely be down in the SE working late spring/early summer. Since I'll have nothing to do down there after work, we'll have to meet up and hit some streams.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
