well some buddies of mine and myself were discussing our "big" trip for this year and I just thought I would throw the qustion out there -

Where in northen MN would y'all go to for a fishing trip if you had the chance. We have picked out a few duds in the past few years and our next best bet for picking a lake out this year is a map, a six pack, and some darts....

Hey Greg, welcome aboard!

I love these kind of questions, because I try real hard to go to a different lake as much as possible.

Anyway, if I had the chance, hmmmmm? Well, I always have the chance, so I will go with a few.

LOTW, Lake Vermilion(see guideman), Kabetogama, and Rainy. A lot of factors come to mind. How far your willing to drive, what you want to spend, what you want to catch and how long you can stay!

I have fished all of these except Rainy. That will happen soon enough. They are all wonderful bodies of water. Picturesque, and full of fish!!

What do you want to fish for?

Hi Greg, I would head for Lake Vermilion. I went up a few years ago with nine other guys on one of those houseboats. That was quite an adventure all by itself. Anyway, Vermilion is a beautiful lake with plenty of place to get out of the wind if you need to. You can fish for just about everything and anything so that no matter when you go, something should be biting. And if you've never had the opportunity to hunt musky, this would give you a great chance to try your luck. Enjoy your trip.

Fish On!

Since this board deals with the SE - I can only say that there is plenty to do without venturing north in terms of fishing. Consider the Mississippi and all of the watersheds that flow into it and the action to be had on those, and there isn't much to venture north for unless you're into dredging for walleyes or staring at a cork for panfish, which, I might add, I actualy like to do on occasion.

I prefer the home waters...

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
