I'm about to head down to warm water discharges on the river around here just to get out CASTING AGAIN! : ) Ya, I'm wishing winter would be over quick...but then again, some items to buy, and changes to the boat that need to be done before she's worthy.

you guys are driving me nuts! I need to get out soon, and all this talk about youg guys going/getting out is enough to make me crazy.

Been way too cold to really get out up here. We need a couple of more days like last weekend before I'm ready to head out up here. Marc, get all of the scouting out of the way over the next month, then when things really start to heat up, I'll head down for some action ;\)

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
