When your line stops like that, you can just grab the "v" and pull that and it usually will come out instantly but there's 2 ways of doing it I guess, cool, you could also be like Katoguy and just fish w/ spinning gear exclusively whistle

Come on... I will be leaving for Madison shortly. 12 left handed reel/rod baitcasting combos in the boat and 2 spinning combos. The spinning rods are for skipping and dropshotting. I sometimes throw the small scum frogs with them, too.

And I occasionally get line loops (air knots) on the braid on my spinning reel, too! grin

frenchlakekid.

high pressure and clear water this weekend you may just be needing one of kato spinning rods so you better be nice! besides they all have there place,you can bet there be one in my hands at some point this weekend .

I personally like to fish docks with a casting reel , with a technic similar to pitching ,I guess you could call it pitch/skipping

Aready respooled all my rods

Did you get a reversal out of those down to the backing? Meaning, if they're braid of course. 50-75% of the first portion of braid off the backing, is like new. I use a lot of braid and reverse it before respooling with new. Just curious. And yes, we found some good fish saturday. smile

That is solid!! All giant fish! I'm guessing since you didn't mention it that the big bass wasn't too ridiculous...

I dont even have braid on any yet!!! crazy That will change before Cedar on Sunday..and Jefferies(sp?) and part. from Iowa won w/ 24.14 and big fish w/ a 6.30 tank!! and I think there was a 23lb bag too? maybe not, not sure. Also Brian Simmons had a 6.13. It's crazy when a team weighs almost 10lbs. w/ only 2 fish and ones a dink. And mod's idk if I can do this??? but weights should be on bestbassfishinginfodotcom shortly if not already

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
