Empty trapline

11 posts in this topic

Checked the trapline again this morning and still nothing. Traps have been out for a week now. Triggers were all adjusted perfect, bait was fresh, locations are ideal, the weather is cold. My only conclusion: the mice at work are getting smarter over the years!!

I should start doing that also, this darn warm weather is a SIN. below freezing for the first time in a few days again today, however we are suppose to get 6 inches of snow tomorrow and then warm up to mid 30's for a few days again. I may never get to the yukon if this crap keeps up.

I think the magnetic fields up there close to the north pole have affected your reasoning ability Fish. You have been gone so long your becoming irrational. Maybe you need to come back to MN and have a few pheasant and wild rice dinners, and watch a football game. 15 below just means more work, trying to keep the house warm. I burn lots of firewood when we get below zero. No, I'm just spoofin ya, I hope you get what you wish for, then maybe we'll get the weather we are supposed to get.

Last year I ended up with about a dozen mice, nothing so far this year despite the cold weather. Always fun to watch the ladies at work squirm when I bring a dead one into the office! Funny, they hate them and a single mouse turd in the building drives them nuts but they still don't like to see them dead.

I had a major invasion this fall at our house, I think I finished up at 5..........found a gap outside in the garage where I think they were getting in. needless to say, my pregnant wife was not happy.........caught most of them while I was out of town hunting on the weekends grin.gif

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
