Thanks for the reply. This year we are going to try to catch some. Not just watch the crazies.

Lubey, catching them by "accident" is actually the way you fish for them. But yeah, keeping your bait on the bottom increases your chances.

I also heard that the more beer you drink the better they bite...always worked for me.

I have heard from various people and resources that they are a sucker for lighted or glow in the dark lures...as far as bait though I don't believe they are picky. I've caught them on crappie minnows, shiners, rainbow chubs, etc.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
