In the fall I use a green colored line to blend in with the greeninsh water but I have never fished the lake in the spring as I just bought my cabin on Jacobsons point last Fall. The water looks clear to copper colored. Any suggestions to using a clear line or stick with the green. I am also looking for some Eye suggstions close to home. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Dan,

The green line works fine. I have been using it for years.

Not familiar with that area so cannot help you there.

Gary will be able to give you a few pointers though. Time of year also make a big difference.

Thanks Cliff! This is my first opener on the big V. I have fished it for about 15 years now but always in July. Looking forward to many full years on the lake!

Dan,

Slip bobbers on old weed edges early and late in the day will get walleyes. Minnows are usually the best bait early in the spring, but leeches may work well this year with the water warming up so fast.

We are going to be trying some new yellow bass pro line this spring. It has been working very well so far this spring in Illinois for crappie with no noticable affect on fish bite compared to the clear blue floresant we usually use. My dad and his buddies switched to it because they are having more and more trouble seeing the line for strikes. Vermillion is usually stained enough it should work alright.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
