Export from IE and import to Firefox after you copy the file to your Firefox folder.

Where are the favorites saved, that is my first problem getting them off of my work computer onto a disk so they are usable else where. I guess I am IE incompatent.

Open IE click file "upper left" Click Import/Export if the wizard pops up click next then select Export Favorites click next and then your going to Export to a file or address, click browse and choose where you want to Export the Favorites "burner, USB media, floppy drive"

Good luck....

Yes, as PierBridge says and then in Firefox, click on Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks... then a new window will open. Then in the new window click on File > Import... and select "From file" option. Then you will have to navigate to where you saved the IE export file and select it as the file/bookmarks to import.

Thanks for the tips everyone. I never even thought of using my bookmark settings from computer to computer. I've always just recreated them. Now I can do it the easy way grin.gif.

I usually export my fav's to my desktop every month or two and then email them to myself. It's a good way of keeping them in case my computer would go down.

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
