Over on Diamond tonight. Caught 4 keepers and about 20 little ones with a buddy of mine and my 2 year old daughter. We were in my buddies boat and my daughter was honking the horn quit a few times.

YEs we were in the same spot. The daughter held the pole for just a minute or two and didn't reel any in. She was busy sitting in the captains chair turning the wheel and honking the horn. Then she would be in the livewell playing with the fish. You should have been out. Not many people fishing. It was us and another boat and every once in a while another boat would troll through. Their was just us and a couple of nice older gentlemen in a small red lund.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      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.
