Nope. I caught decent edible fish. I'm not out to catch record fish. I'm happy with the keepers. Not everybody is a pro fisherman like you.

fishersofmen is far from a pro.... haha. But yes, as he stated, 7 and 8 inch crappies aren't going in my bucket. Whether they're thick or not, it's not worth my time filletin them up. 9" are good eaters, but I still don't like keepin' those, 10" plus is ideal

A crappie under 9" never goes in my pail. You hardly get any meat on anything under that anyway...throw em' back and let them grow's what I say.

Come on guys, thats enough. I know fisherman don't always tell the truth, and thats fine. If he kept those crappies, good job on catching them. Ask yourself this question. Would you have rahtered've had him keep 10 12" crappies or 10 8" crappies. Ponder that.

Bob, I'm glad you were able to get on top of fish. Let people think there are small guys in there and keep the lake to your self.

K-dawg, thank you for posting what I was thinking. As long as a guy gets on some fish and gets a good meal out of it so be it.

      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.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      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.
