HOGEYE here!
Great to see someone living up in AK. I lived in Homer for about four months a couple years back and have been dying to return. I am recently gratuated from college and was curious what the job seen may be like now. B.S. in Environmental Studies w\ a soil\water emphasis. Too bad there's not good walleye fishin in AK, or are there a few spots?

Hey Buddy...I travel to Homer and fish for Halibut alot. I use to work fisheries and live in Kasilof, AK just South of Kenai. I miss Crappie fishing everyday. Being from Hibbing, MN originally I come back every winter to fish for walleye, Crappie and Lake trout for a month. I worked for the state in MN, now work for the Gov't up here and now I am going to be taking a fisheries research job in the private sector. I really enjoy working in Alaska and recruit for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. I am currently still attending the University of Alaska Fairbanks and taking some graduate classes while completing my B.S. I have a lot of fisheries experience from guiding, to working fisheries in MN and AK. If you are interested in a job the deadline for Gov't hiring is December 15th and if you email me your address I will get a federal application and a job announcement to you for a seasonal Fisheries Technician position here in Alaska. If you have a Bachelor's the Gov't up here will classify you as a GS-5 and pay you 15+ per hour. Free food, COLA cost of living allowance which is 25% of your pay, lots of perks.

My email address is [email protected]
send me your mailing address and I will mail you some info.

      Yes, MN is very difficult to register anything that had a title or a original registration card. I've ran into the same issue with old snowmobiles, and motorcycles it suks. Hope he can get it done over in Wisconsin for you. Good Luck.

      Thanks.  Very similar to my tactics.  I usually haven't started using lead core until August and then we are fishing in 30 FOW.  I will give it a try in 20-25'.

      It's amazing how much the water level is dropping. It looks like we've been getting enough rain to keep the forest hydrated but not enough to fill the lake.

      Finally made it up to Vermilion this summer.  Between opening our place in Soudan and entertaining the wife and dog I only made it out on the lake 1½ hours Wednesday evening and 3½ hours Thursday morning.  In those 5 hours all I caught was a 10" perch.  I had 3 other light bites and that was it.  The wife caught two 8" eyes Wednesday and didn't get out Thursday morning with me.  Vermilion Fuel and Food didn't have rainbows, and their chubs were very small and pike suckers were too big (they did have a river-mix that looked good that I should have tried).  I did see a few mayflies on the surface so I will blame all of those factors on my lack of success, although my lack of fishing skills factored in also.  Many others fishing around us and I only saw one other fish being landed so maybe I wasn't the only one struggling to catch fish.   Water temp was 65°F in Stuntz Bay and the water level is running 13" lower than last year at this time as shown below.  Good luck fishing and enjoy the lake.  It was beautiful out there.
