Looks like my Canada trip in August may not be able to happen due to uncertainty that boarder will open in time. Our group is tossing around the idea of going up
to lake vermilion instead. I am wondering if anyone has advise on where to stay. I have done some looking around and most resorts rent by the week. Any info would be greatly appreciated
There is an article in the Timberjay asking people to complete a survey that would help bring broadband to the area. I don't know much about this so I'm not promoting anything except for awareness.
The link to the survey is below. Click on the red link that says "Iron Range Broadband Survey":
I’m not even sure if I’m in the right page I just signed up but my question is I just purchased a boat from a private seller went to his home the boat fired up I purchased the boat, the day before I brought it out which was about a week and a half later it fired up brought it to the lake the next day it fired up boated around for about 25 minutes found a spot to fish It was off for about an hour or so went to start it back up and it would not fire back up had to be towed off the lake so the moral of the story is there anyway I can go back and get my money legally without no trouble or what is my next step if the seller does not want to give the money back?
Greetings....I'm searching for an original TUFFY (molded metal, left side or set of 2) TRANSOM CORNER for a rebuild on a 1985 Tuffy Muskie. Several TUFFY boats had these so being specifically from a Marauder may not be necessary. Wondering if anyone can help in locating one from a dealer or private party who may have upgraded to more modern transom corners/caps....maybe a boat that's been abandoned or scraped.
Photo attached of the right-rear that I am trying to set-match to. The right side I have. Need to get a left side cap.
Thanks for any assistance.

Stayed on the west side last week. Perfect weather for most of the week. Light winds, cool mornings and 70-80 during the day. Plenty of sunshine - no rain to speak of.
Of the ~20 Walleye we caught, 60% of them were in the 10" to 14" range. Everything else was 22" to 26". Trolled plugs but mostly fished spinners slow w/ Crawler and Leeches.
Fished mostly deep reefs all over the main basins. Kept moving. Biggest take away was a large scale bug hatch going on (not mayflies) and the largest small perch population I've ever witnessed. Both of these lit of the electronics with pure clouds... 4-6" perch literally everywhere. Pretty amazing to be honest.
Every fish was very healthy...stuffed full. Gonna be fun in a few years. Also caught several nice Bluegill, Small and Largemouth Bass and a few Pike. All larger than past years. 1 50" musky stopped by to say high in calm weather middle of the day.
Did make it to the East side a few days with little success but the timing of the day didn't help. Definitely marked plenty of fish off deep reefs in 16-30 mainly in Big Bag. No bug hatch there and not near the bait fish population.
If I was there this week, I would fish reefs near deepest water adjacent to defined points. That's my 2 cents.
The most interesting thing I've seen on the lake is loons flocking up to fly south. Saw this on Norwegian Bay October 9, 2018. There had to be at least 200 of them, including some clearly too young to make the trip.
I've been having good luck with lead core as well. I use Suffix 832, with line counter reels. Each color is 30 feet of line. As a rule of thumb, every 1 foot of depth requires 5 feet of line, so if you are fishing at 30' FOW you would let out 150' of line, or 5 colors. Trolling speed affects how deep your crank is running as well (slower is deeper). I usually run between 2.2 and 2.5 mph. As a check, you can keep letting out line until your crank starts bumping bottom and then reel up 10' of line.
I hear ya on the difficulties fishing any lobe of Whitefish on the weekends! Just have to get up and be done before 10am or go back out after 6pm and the lake settles a little. We trolled "lower" WF on Thursday evening and only caught 1 northern. Didn't appear to have as thick of a gathering of fish...
We went back out on Saturday morning to try our luck on Whitefish for Whitefish and in 2 hours caught 1 3.5lb'er and missed a few bites. Wow can they be fun to pull out of 50-70 ft of water. We use jigging raps but wow do whitefish bit lightly but put up a good fight...and there are plenty of them on the big lakes!!! Good fish on the smoker too!!
I sent fish them suspended in the basin areas. Do get a few any off bottom near weed edges and suspending near flats that drop sharply. Like Bobt I have had good results trolling cranks over and around weeds. Also, midlake humps with spinner rigs/crawler or jigging raps can be very good.
Panfish can be awesome. However I had trouble pinning down many nice ones today. So even they are not a guarantee. Maybe I will have a better report soon as I will be up through Thursday evening.
