when you buy the pre made lindy rigs that have 14 lbs test on it,do you change the line on it or keep it the same? I've only changed it once on Mille Lacs and they bit right through it.

Fever

I make my own lindy's for my yearly trip up to Mille Lacs. I usually make them in 6, 7, 8, and 9 foot lengths with different color blades, beads, and hooks in a bunch of different combinations and variations ALL in 8lb vanish. I never use snells that long around south central mn. I spose you could get away with heavier lines in some places but I've never gotten bit off with 8 on Mille Lacs. Could easily get bit off my a pike even if your using 20 though. On Mille Lacs though, the past three years I've out fished all the other guys in the party... don't know if it has something to do with line or not... Could be.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
