Ice Conditions via Denny Green

5 posts in this topic

Went to Vermilion over the weekend, Friday through Sunday. The ice conditions are what we thought they were. 9-12 inches of ice, 3-4 inches of slush covered by a foot of snow. Things started to solidify a bit on Sunday afternoon. When the fish and the fishermen both want to win, only one can win. We were limited by our mode of transportation and caught some decent Perch but no eyes. Travel wasn't easy. Some fish bit but we let them off the hook. If you want to crown 'em, crown theirs a$$es. If you want to find me, I'll be on the high road with two hands on the plow. Do you know which direction you're looking in when you have two hands on the plow? You're looking forward.

Ahhh, Denny Green. Dare I say the best coach that the Vikings have had in the last fifteen years. Saying those words, although true, sound like nails scratching a chalk board.

I hope that I didn't open a can of worms, that would make me beligerous. Another great Denny quote.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
