Good luck fishing! Im also fond of fly fishing. I find it easier to fish when you have the best fly fishing rods. If youre looking to upgrade your rod, you can check here.

      I went out to Medicine lake yesterday and there were dead panfish discarded all over the place. I don't know who or why but it was such a waste, plus one little sunny was obviously cut up as bait... And then I found a huge PILE of about 20 fish behind a building. There are signs posted and reminders everywhere, only 5 panfish/crappies per person. This looked deliberate, like a middle finger to authority.
      I was furious and now I'm just sad. I took pictures and I want to do something about it but I have no idea what. 😩

      For those of you planning on a trip to the egg taking station on the Pine River forget it till next year.   Due to the covid regs.  there will be no visitors allowed this year. Hope they are having a good run.  Rayguy

      Hey all! Tomorrow (Apr 3rd) I'm taking some friends out to do some fishing. We usually target rivers, and live around the metro, but I'm willing to drive a ways to find good spots. No boat, so this would be shore fishing.
      We aren't after anything specific but would be nice to get something to fry up later! Which of course means targeting legal fish like carp, suckers, cats, panfish, etc.

      I heard a few lakes are starting to have ice moving and piling up in this two day wind storm.  Folks could end up with some shore line damage?  😬

      Does anyone know if you can get a pontoon from Mayo to Sibley lake?  Looking at property on Mayo.

      Looking to set up my new Alumacraft Trophy boat.  Anyone have experience with Alumatrac?  Stuff available from Alumacraft is plastic and looks weak and the options are quite limited.  Stuff from other makers I have seen (Brocraft, Traxstech, Depth Raider, Colliflower) is metal and a number of reviews say they don't fit or scratch badly.  Seems the tolerance on this track may not be very tight.  Colliflower states they have a top adjustment to account for the poor tolerance but their options are limited.  Looking at all options including rod holders, downrigger holders, and other gadgets.  Trying to decide whether to buy for the track or just mount directly to the gunwale.  Any help is appreciated.

      Heavy rain, warm 50+ temps, 15 MPH wind, Coon Lake Anoka Co. Opened today 3/24/21. Sunny tomorrow, good time to get boat ready. Lots of Robbins flying around in the rain.

      Is the special 40 inch min pike reg for this lake gone? I only see a 10 per day sunfish limit listed. Thanks

      I figured I would just shoot this out, since I drive by it every day to work.  
       
      The access in Cold Spring was basically open to use this morning.  Yesterday there still was ice at the ramp, and this morning it was all gone.  I'm sure some guys are itching to get their boats out, and looks like a nice weekend to maybe do so. 
       
      I might try and get out Saturday if it stays dry.  I never got a chance to do some data logging with my big motor last fall.  It seems to be running a bit rich, and I want to play with the fuel tables/injectors a bit.  Looks like a great day for that.

      Now that the season is over for eyes, was going to get reels ready for next year, while waiting for summer.  I have been using 6lb test but currently only have 4. I use the Berkley fireline crystal micro ice. Try breaking it, cut into hands. Think it would be strong enough. What does everyone else use, and any problems landing bigger fish?
      Thanks

      Congratulations on your retirement CigarGuy. I retired in December and it's fantabulous!!!  😃
    • SkunkedAgain
      Congratulations on retiring. I hope the final day is a long lunch and a beer send-off.   I'll see you out there.
    • CigarGuy
      Just don't keep any 12-13" walleyes😀. Can't wait to visit your bay and catch some crappies. Tomorrow, Is my last day working, I'm officially retiring. I'll be chasing them all spring. Then on to the walleyes!! Can't wait....I better add that I'll be practicing c/r, if I'm lucky enough to catch a few 😀

      @gimruis Hey this is a feed for info.  Not life lessons.  Get off this feed if all your here for is to argue.  Also your not helping your cause by saying you worked for the Dnr.  If the Dnr had it figured out,  there would be a minimum size.  Quit being a jackass.

      They were there yesterday afternoon when we came back to the lake. I'm not sure they were running yet as there wasn't anybody down at the water. It was a cold,  wet, nasty day though. Gates were closed & had a sign on it, no visitors this season in order to follow CV-19 protocols.

      i've used all at one point or another, and there isn't a big difference that i can see, on V at least. One consideration is the "Follow the Contour" option, if you use a Humminbird/Minnkota trolling option. It only works with LakeMaster.
    • Wakemup52
      I have used both and the Navionics chips come with the 1 foot contours. I prefer Humminbird products personally, and as Raven said, the LM chips made for Humminbird are impossible to beat IMO.
    • Raven77
      The latest Lakemaster maps have 1' contours for LV.  I can't imaging there is a better combination than Lakemaster mapping, Humminbird electronics, and Minnkota trolling motors with I-pilot link all linked by ethernet.  It's a totally integrated system and all pieces are designed to work together.  Add to that Contour Elite, which allows you to  study the maps on your computer and share information back and forth from your computer and your Humminbird unit.  Sorry to hijack the thread with Humminbird stuff as I know the OP asked about Lowrance.  Not sure how Lakemaster works with Lowrance.

      Welcome to Lake Vermilion Nic.  The Timberjay article is extremely positive for the 2016 year class and the 2018 year class.  We have some good years ahead of us on the lake!
    • NicMatNat
      well, my family just bought a place up on the lake and am thrilled to see stories like this:     http://www.timberjay.com/stories/walleye-boom-time,17521   Unless people just started keeping 12" walleye this year, i don't see the problem.
