Little fish huh, can't wait to see the big boys. grin.gif I've been going up for 7 years and have never hooked into one. How do they fight? Just hard nosed weight or are they runners like a nort? Bill

This is the first sturgeon I have caught through the ice and it was dead weight when I first set the hook. I was in 22 fow in front of the gap and at first I thought walleye, but it didn't take long to realize I had either a sturgeon or a northern. I fought it for 15 to 20 minutes, it would peel line for 10-15 seconds than stop then again and again. Finally got to see it after 10 minutes and when it saw the ice it went down to the bottom again to start the fight again. Lucky I had fireline crystal! All in all it was a riot!

We've caught them in the river, and Four mile Bay in the spring and fall, and they are a blast!!! And when you do get a legal fish, they are unbelieveable smoked!!! I guess if I had to put it in to perspective, imagine a John deere tractor down on bottom, pulling your boat around!!! Alot of people just cut the line when they figure out thry have one on, but if you don't mind trying to horse on in after a hour or better fight, i suggest trying it!!! It really had to be a gas thru the ice!!! Bumble

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
