With Thanksgiving only 2 weeks away and the 6" of snow we are getting right now it will only be a matter of time before people are asking for gift ideas. I have no idea what to ask for so let's hear what is on everyones wish list.

Hmmm, Brad Johnson lites up the pack with FOUR td's through the air and 400 yards and WINS. Williamson actually catches two passes in a row with no instant replay. We get that week of Indian summer still this fall and it does not rain or the wind does not go above 10mph I get that winter job in the keys testing fishing lures during the day and beer testing at night. My assistant is a former Miss Octoberfest. On a more serious note I just want to be able to wake up tomorrow and still remember yesterday for a lot of tomorrows.. And the thing about Brad Johnson and the Vikes. grin.gif

Bobby Bass - Johnson throws two TD passes to Santa Clause and the other two to the Easter Bunny.

All I want are lots of lakers, walleyes and panfish laying next to my hole. But, I wouldn't mind a new boat.

H20 C,

Another Leadcore rig,

Less than 5 turnovers on Sunday,

and a spotting scope.

Now I haven't decided if I should wait and see if it is under the tree on xmas day or just buy it all for my 4 year old daughter along with her normal set of goods. tongue.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. We hope to have this last section groomed by the weekend. Please use caution when traveling these trails. Logging is ongoing on the Arrowhead Trail north of Hwy 1, north of Hoodoo Lake, and north of the Elephant Lake Rd. (Conditions reported from DNR)   BEARSKIN TRAIL 1-17-17 update: Nature has been working in our favor! We have been grooming everything regularly and conditions are very nice! The Bearskin has been groomed and is in good shape - watch for overhanging brush in some spots. The Tim Corey has NOT YET been groomed as of this update. (Conditions provided by the Cook Timberwolves Snowmobile Club)   
      LAKE VERMILION AND SOUDAN UNDERGROUND MINE STATE PARKS 1-19-17. Local snow depth is 22-26" Base 3-5". Snowmobile trails in the park are groomed and open. The Alaska shaft trail is cleared of trees and open for non-motorized users. (Conditions provided by the DNR)

      TOMAHAWK TRAIL 1-19-17 Snowfall Depth 18" Base - 4-6" Trail is cleared through to the North Shore from Ely. Most of the trail is groomed; however, swamps and wetlands have not yet frozen so groomers are unable to do that portion of the trails. Trails are in fair to good condition. (Conditions provided by the Ely Chamber) VOYAGEUR-CRANE LAKE TRAIL 1-18-17: The weather is just beautiful and so are the trails. All the trails are being groomed and the Arrowhead is back to it's normal schedule. There are still a few beaver ponds that we are not taking the groomer over but as mentioned before we are grooming up to those spots from both sides. It takes extra time but we want the trails at there best. (Conditions provided by the Voyageur Trail Society)
