Sue,

Nice pic!

When are you going to be up in September? I'll be up with a small group September 9-16. Maybe we can meet up on the lake. Where are you staying on the west end?

Most times we stay at Life of Riley, but this September we'll be at Forest Lane on the east end.

We're talking about doing two weeks straight at a private cabin next year in September. We want to save on pulling the boat up for two separate weeks. Since we're near St. Louis, and have a 22 ft. pontoon the gas bill is high for the trip. We're still looking at cabins. Have you done the private thing before? Let me know what you think.

If you decide to get up to the lake earlier to camp, let me know. Maybe we can all get together and fish a little!!

Sue; Glad to hear the positive comments about Voyageurs Cove resort. We're staying there in mid September and have never been to Vermilion before. We just kind of picked VC because the location looked great and the place just looked like a "fun" place.

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod

        Jim, If ya get out give Frank or me a call on the cellular device.  We can compare notes.  Not much looking forward to it.  Heard there was a winter kill on the pond this year   BC

      Hey guys,   Just an FYI.  It sounds like the shifting ice sheet did some extensive damage to docks and shoreline on the south facing shore of Birch Point?  Letters went out from the barge services notifying everyone.    Can anyone confirm?   I have not personally been up to see but depending on how bad it is we might not have a dock in time for opener.  If you have a south facing dock it might be worth noting.   Thanks! Jon
