First time Laker chasing

3 posts in this topic

I am heading to Canada mid March for a first attempt at a laker. I am wondering what type of gear I need. I have some medium heavy ice rods but what kind of line do you guys like? I talked to my buddy who was out chasing them this week and he was using buck tail jigs and airplane jigs. I am not familiar with these lures to much. I have a few smaller northland tackle airplanes but I would like to add a few others that people have good success. He used cut sucker minnows do have other advice for bait? Thanks for any help and good luck on the ice.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
