It is a good haul, but I have had some good luck up around the Roseau pools.

Right on the Roseau/Kittson county line is where I would go. You can walk trails in the more wooded spots for ruffies, walk the open stuff to the west for sharpies, and hunt ducks and geese(when the season opens) on the pool. There is also a free ranging elk herd in the area. They should be bugling up a storm right now.

joe, hit tamarac NWR (Becker Cty 26) or Hubble Pond WMA (Hanson Lake Rd off of Becker Co 29) just north of DL for some grouse action.

I haven't been up there much this fall to see if there are any birds around, but I know there were birds harvested there last fall.

I'll second the Tamarac area, its not all that far, and lots of area to walk. I have had GREAT success there in the past, and should be good this year. Just make sure to stop and grab a map for the area, some areas are closed to hunting.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
