As Cyb says... yes there is a trap attack on chisago.. you can only fish chisago lake, and only the main basin north of the island... I thought about it as well. but its the same day as the Slabfest on Upper Red... I'll be going to Upper Red.. cool.gif

i know someone that said he was doing it in early january but i didn't know if it was finalized or anything. should be interesting to see the results

deitz, i thought you could be in the running to take the top prize...but slabs on red might be worth the prize of 1st anyway..gotta love those 14ers.

I know chisago as well as many.. that is for sure. .but, when they cut off part of the lake, they cut the lake in half, they shut down a lot of good fishing.

I already had my lodging for URL..... then again, I would hate to be shown up on my home waters as well.. LOL grin.gif

Dietz -

Give me that list of honey holes that you got, I'll get your back while you're up at URL. So what if it could be the first time I've been out in 3 years. laugh.gif

      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.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
