Dare to dream, I say.

If there's 4" of GOOD HARD ice I'll walk out and drown a minnow.

I walked on ice this morning. but the tools i were carrying werent of the fish gathering variety; unless its legal somewhere to blast fish with a 3.5" super x2! man for birds around. woke up about 500 mallards and at least that many geese as we walked into the slough. had to bust a lot of ice to get a nice spot in the north end; ice was nearly 2" in some spots!

carpshooterdelux, just curious what part of the land you are speaking of. Are you hunting sd or mn. I have been seeing more and more mallards and geese. Send me an e-mail if you dont mind. I was worried that my ducks were gonne head out after the freeze over. We should have brought the ice rods out with us this morning on the slough smile.giftrevor@rogers-autosales.com

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
