As it's only 5 minutes from my place, I visited Grindstone Lake again today,,,it was pretty slow. I tried a variety of options for anything and couldn't get much response, so switched up and dropped a chub to the bottom. Took a 29 inch northern that served up well for dinner, after having removed those nasty little y-bones.
I haven't hit Mille lacs lake in a while now,,,the last visit for perch 10 days ago did NOT work well for me. I was marking them on the vex, but just too fussy. I think I need one of those vexilars that make the fish bite. Anyone know where I can get one like that?
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
