    Are you close to Vermillion lake? We made the trip one time up there for the opener(2004) and it’s one of the best fishing trips I’ve done.
    A flashy jerk bait worked well for pike when we were there. Would love to get back there sometime.

    I primarily bass fish but have used the whopper plopper with some success... I wouldn't recommend the smaller sizes as they just dont do much in the water. The bigger ones create more commotion and splash so i would think that would be better for pike or musky. Personally, id rather stick to a traditional spook or popper for topwater fishing.

    Thinking about getting my dad a chartered fishing trip for walleye for Father’s Day. I’ve got the bug to fish bad and we are not getting ice anytime soon here.

    Any 2 day trip advise welcome.

    That’s not bad. Just needs to walk it off like a bad leg cramp.

    Defiantly hurt not injured, rub some dirt on it. Plus that is what you get for being a grown man wearing flip flops.

    Ha, ok. If I may ask why you think it is terrible?

    I love it, so I really don't care, just more curious than anything.

    So I brought my big Penn saltwater up and mated it with a semi stiff 6' ugly stick as a trolling rig and heavy casting. Put in the rod holder infront of the side council and oh my let the ice melt.

    Shape/ face /contour/color is horrid!

    Looks like a student's first mount.
    But it's yours and you're happy:cool:

    I have a taxidermist friend that has talked me into keeping a box of borax in the boat. Evidently if you apply borax to a fish it preserves the colors. That and take lots of pictures of the fish so the colors can be accurately matched.
