I'll just miss you... arriving on the 9th (staying through the 16th). Staying on 8th (&9th & 10th) Crow Wing. Has been six years since our last vacation to PR (or any where for that matter). CAN'T BEGIN TO TELL YOU how excited I am.

And, the more I think about it, who needs a resort cabin? I'm just gonna LIVE in my boat, out on the lake!! <lol>

Loadin' up on Scum Frogs, Senko's, Gulp's, swimmin' jigs... gotta replace some skirts on my spinner-baits, and buzz-baits, replace line, etc. etc. Man, am I pumped!!!

Thanks Jonah. I saved those emails! I don't know how much in & out of the water stuff I'll be doing. If fishing is good on 8/9/10, I'll probably just spend the week there. On the other hand, I might try fishing some other lakes that have public access AND had also been on my "count-down" list of lakes: 5/6/7 Crow Wing, Spider, Crooked, Big/Little Mantrap, etc.

MIGHT try to get over to Skunk too... too early to tell, but the way I look at it, time spent going from lake to lake is time that I could spend FISHING! <g>

I'll be thinking of you hitting the books, while I'm out fishing! On the other hand, keep an eye out for those young co-eds!! blush.gif

      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!

      I liked the lake vermilion and lake vermilion resort and tourism pages so got this update.  If you went to the resort association web page you could probably get on their mailing list.   http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Lake-Vermilion-Area-Trails-Update-1-20-17.html?soid=1102498830363&aid=G5yKEZiNmkU Lake Vermilion Area Trail Update, 1/20/2017 There is a total of about 22-26" on the ground. Grooming is taking place and trails are in good condition. The latest updates are below... ARROWHEAD TRAIL 1-18-17. Local snow depth is 24-30" Base is 3-5". The entire Arrowhead is groomed and in fair to good condition except for a two-mile portion going north over a swamp from the Orr South Grant-in-Aid trail.
