Make sure you dont over fill your spools... Alot of ppl have the a problem with that. That will really help with line twist.

Lighter line doesn't seem to have as much line twist. I use 3lb Micro Ice even in the summer. It casts like a dream and is strong enough to handle larger fish. Superlines like Fireline Crystal would be another good option. I used the 1 and 2lb tests and they work great.

One more thing to think about. Try closing the bail manually rather than by spinning the handle. This can be a big problem solver.

Good fishing,

Corey Bechtold

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
