Cabelas tank in Rogers. grin

seriously though, many good lakes to try. Pick one and give it Hell, dont try ot learn 5 lakes at once. Try maybe a smaller one and move to bigger.

Get out there and pound some water. Plenty of good lakes to try you just have to put in the time. A way to learn a lake quicker would be to hire a guide for the day and pick his brain apart.

They are all good at one time or another. Best thing to do is get out and fish em' .

Yep, pick one that you know has them and fish away. Wisconsin actually takes the time to rank its lakes on there's days when you can see some action on class C's and others where you get nothing on A2's. Just the way things are. Plus I think all metro waters are pretty similar in their numbers per acre anyway.

Although it generally is easier to catch tigers, so you may want to start there.

Jim Buck has it right.. a good guide is worth every penny. If I could go back that would have been the first thing I ever did.

Make sure to get a good guide!!!

Think of it this way.

If you hire a good guide he will take you to a metro lake that will give you the best opp to catch a fish. While you are fishing that lake he will tell you about 5 others and how to fish them... Well worth the $350-$400.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
