Come on there has to be someone who has a hunting dog in the LAX area that has a favorite vet. If you dont't want to say on the board PM me. I don't want to play roulete in the phone book to get an appointment for my baby.

Drive all the way accross the metro to get to a vet that I trust. About an hour and a quarter (give or take the quarter depending on traffic). Can't be that much farther from you to Inver Grove Heights. Another 20 mins or so puts you to Fran Smith in Burnsville. Labs4me with good reason reccommends her and I am ready to switch if my vet ever dissappoints me.

Setter, I can give you the names of two that I have used briefly. Briefly, not because they were bad but I moved away from the area.

My folks took my lab when I went to CO for elk this fall and while I was gone my mom got worried when the pup got real loose stools. She took her in to LaCrescent Animal Care, in LaCrescent and although she it was just a change in diet, the vet did a good job helping my mom out. I have friends down there that use this vet and they seem to be satisified.

When I was a kid, the vet we always used for various critters was Hillside Animal Hospital, Hwy 33 just east of LaCrosse. Good experiences with them but this was about 8 years ago.

If I was to move back I would start with these two. Not alot of info for you put a starting point perhaps.

      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
