what's the best way to work a burmek? slow speed, medium speed? Down deep or on the surface? I've never had any follows on them, but they sure have a nice action to them. I've just never had any luck with them.

ahc:

hey. i like to give a steady retrieve, then a couple quick 2ft jerk/pause, jerk/pause. mix it up a bit. the fish i've caught on this retireve generally spank it right after the second jerk/pause.

good luck...

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      Sounds like a fair deal Boney, booze for bait works for me. i am starting to prep the boat and gear, too. cant wait.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
