Water level-Plughat & East Seely

4 posts in this topic

Did anyone put in at either of these two landings yet on Winnie/Cutfoot? Wondering how the water levels are. I have an older Tracker that has a deep V. We will be heading up on Thursday, fishing Friday through Monday. How was the fishing?

Don't believe you would have any issues? Put in a deep 18 foot Lund out of Plug Hat yesterday. Access water level was descent (2-3 feet). Fishing was fair around Tamarrack for opener.

I am glad to hear that the water levels are ok. Last fall we nicked up the prop a little too much putting in at Plughat. With less snow this winter and little spring rain I just wanted to make sure we would be alright. The boat is ready to go, just need to finish packing tonight, leave after work tomorrow. Looking forward to some jigging, are the shiners plentiful?

You shouldn't have any problem with plughat or shiners. Make sure you bring a few leeches, I couldn't believe the fish being caught on Lindy's on Sunday.

Should be a great time!

      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!
