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.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture.
