jig, minnow, and a medium action rod is about all you need to catch hundreds of walleyes in that area.

If you were to troll cranks in the afternoon/evening, you don't need much there. Med action rod, and deep diving Rapalas. I really don't think you need more than a few rods/person for this type of fishing.

Right on, Hemlock. Leave all that [PoorWordUsage] at home and bring one spining rod, a few jigs and some spinners.

Then you can relax. All that other stuff is to much like work!!!

What Hemlock+Wild Thing Said

I go up there 1-3 times a year. My list of thing to take.

1- crappie rod

2-spinning rods med + med/heavy, eyes,northens

2-baitcasters med/heavy + heavy, musky, pike

The only reason I take so many is you never know when one will brake.

I almost always leave one or two at camp for the above resin.

1- large box with cranks, spinners, miscellaneous stufffffff. You know

2- small boxes. 1 for spinner baits (I make them so I bring lots) Love to catch pike.

and 1 small box for lead (jigs, bait walkers with spinners and lots of rubber.

twisters tails, grubs, gulp type stuff.

Thats it.

I have bin given some ---- for taking to much stuffff. But if you don't have it,

there is no place to buy it in the middle of the lake. (Sorry Hemlock)

As for the lead core line and trolling stuff, I don't think it will be necessary on that part of the lake. No offense implied or expressed!

Please, let us know how you did when you get back.

    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
