Snow

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys- planning to go down to the winnebago near caledonia on saturday. What is the snow pack like? The 1" that stuck around here burnt up today in no time. Do you think the streams will be running clear or a little cloudy from the run off still? Kind of curious before I drive over 2 hours. Any feedback or anything will be very helpful.

I would imagine that on Saturday it'll be running clear. It probably is crystal clear today and will be tomorrow, for what it's worth. Much of this snow is soaking right into the ground and whatever runoff there is isn't messing things up much, if at all.

Good luck!

What river/streams you plan on hitting around Caledonia?

I fishied the Winnebago and the south fork of crooked creek. Did very well, had a tuna of fun. I wished it would have been warmer in the tent though.

Wasn't bad at all... we knew what we were up for, and we came very well prepared. Couldn't beat the day time weather w/ a stick.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      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!
