  1. I went out to Medicine lake yesterday and there were dead panfish discarded all over the place. I don't know who or why but it was such a waste, plus one little sunny was obviously cut up as bait... And then I found a huge PILE of about 20 fish behind a building. There are signs posted and reminders everywhere, only 5 panfish/crappies per person. This looked deliberate, like a middle finger to authority. I was furious and now I'm just sad. I took pictures and I want to do something about it but I have no idea what.
  2. When I was up two weeks ago, the lake snow was getting thin and was barely thick enough in the woods for snowmobiles. Have we added much snow lately? Any word on the trails?
  3. I heard a few lakes are starting to have ice moving and piling up in this two day wind storm. Folks could end up with some shore line damage?

    YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8

    It really was my first open water test of YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8 and it was on both spinning and casting reels. On the spinning reel is 14# label spooled onto the Shimano Sustain 1000FE mounted on a Shimano Zodias 7' Light power rod. There is a short leader of Stroft GTM 5X 5.28# test of about 18 inches in length connected by an FG knot. On the casting reel is 25# label spooled onto a Shimano Bantam MGLXG model mounted on a Shimano Poison Adrena 6'11" Medium+ power rod. There is about a 5 feet length of 20# test Silverthread Xcalibur copolymer line connected by an FG knot. On the spoo
  5. So I really got my first field test of my new Zodias Rod I purchased this spring. I did bring out both the ZDS70LA and ZDS70MLA. Since I only managed to hook up with fish on the Light power rod, it's really the only one that got the real test. Anyway for both rods casting is wonderful smooth and slick. I didn't put any additional effort other than the bare minimum. Lure retrieve also was wonderful for both rods and both rods don't even feel like 7 feet rods that's I've used in the past. I almost felt like they were shorter rods with feel in likeness to a typical 6'6" rod in use. Working lure
  6. Does anyone know if you can get a pontoon from Mayo to Sibley lake? Looking at property on Mayo.
  7. Hey all! Tomorrow (Apr 3rd) I'm taking some friends out to do some fishing. We usually target rivers, and live around the metro, but I'm willing to drive a ways to find good spots. No boat, so this would be shore fishing. We aren't after anything specific but would be nice to get something to fry up later! Which of course means targeting legal fish like carp, suckers, cats, panfish, etc.
  8. For those of you planning on a trip to the egg taking station on the Pine River forget it till next year. Due to the covid regs. there will be no visitors allowed this year. Hope they are having a good run. Rayguy
  9. Is on the way. Ordered a Perception Sound 10.5. Looking forward to chasing some big fishies in May or June. Second pic is for @Rick G
  10. To renew your Fishing license before going out...New ones were due March 1... Also going into effect March 1 New sunfish regs on Horseshoe chain.. Possession limit is now 10 fish. Long overdue in my opinion
  11. Is the special 40 inch min pike reg for this lake gone? I only see a 10 per day sunfish limit listed. Thanks

    Alumatrac

    Looking to set up my new Alumacraft Trophy boat. Anyone have experience with Alumatrac? Stuff available from Alumacraft is plastic and looks weak and the options are quite limited. Stuff from other makers I have seen (Brocraft, Traxstech, Depth Raider, Colliflower) is metal and a number of reviews say they don't fit or scratch badly. Seems the tolerance on this track may not be very tight. Colliflower states they have a top adjustment to account for the poor tolerance but their options are limited. Looking at all options including rod holders, downrigger holders, and other gadgets. Tryi
  13. I figured I would just shoot this out, since I drive by it every day to work. The access in Cold Spring was basically open to use this morning. Yesterday there still was ice at the ramp, and this morning it was all gone. I'm sure some guys are itching to get their boats out, and looks like a nice weekend to maybe do so. I might try and get out Saturday if it stays dry. I never got a chance to do some data logging with my big motor last fall. It seems to be running a bit rich, and I want to play with the fuel tables/injectors a bit. Looks like a great day for tha
  14. Heavy rain, warm 50+ temps, 15 MPH wind, Coon Lake Anoka Co. Opened today 3/24/21. Sunny tomorrow, good time to get boat ready. Lots of Robbins flying around in the rain.
  15. We’re heading up to Lutsen area for the first week of April and I was looking for fishing ideas with kids. Options I was considering: guided ice fishing if the ice is still decent, panfish on smaller lakes or walleye on Sag or shore fishing on superior. I go up steelhead fishing every spring but that’s typically early for upper shore- maybe casting around river mouths? I also haven’t done any shore fishing off break walls so I wouldn’t know where to start- if that time of year is worth it or would hold kids attention, depths to try, etc. They do love climbing around rocks and beaches on sh
  16. Hello! New to this but I come across a lot of these threads and wanted to give it a try! I’ve done some fishing on canisteo mine pit for lake trout and have had some good days and very slow days. Was wondering if anybody fishes the taconite side for lake trout in the winter? When I’m out there I never see any traffic out that way so I’m curious if anybody has had success! Thanks Mojo88
  17. Let’s hear about your 2020 projects up at the lake. At my daughter’s request, I am going to rebuild the outhouse to “higher standards.” What do you plan to do?

    4 vs 6

    Now that the season is over for eyes, was going to get reels ready for next year, while waiting for summer. I have been using 6lb test but currently only have 4. I use the Berkley fireline crystal micro ice. Try breaking it, cut into hands. Think it would be strong enough. What does everyone else use, and any problems landing bigger fish? Thanks
  19. I'm looking at rebuilding my outhouse and possibly giving the ladies an alternative to the fly-filled pit privy. As far as I'm concerned as a guy, dropping a deuce in the hole once a weekend is no big deal. For ladies it's a different story since they go several times a day. I'm not excited at the prices of composting toilets but am doing the research. Mostly I'm trying to figure out from all of you if any of them work well in our part of the world. I see the Sun-Mar, Nature's Head, Incinolet, Envirolet, and Biolet toilets available. Does anyone have any experience with any of these?
  20. So now that there are many options out there, what are people thinking on the new electric augers? I have been impressed with the drill attached augers that I have used this year and also the Strikemaster 40v electric auger. For next year I will certainly be investing into one of these options as they are so powerful, quiet, and dont use gas!!! I now have used a kdrill and Strikemaster drill attachments and both are nice but the strikemaster rips throught the ice faster than the kdrill IMO. I love how I don't need to worry about gas spilling onto by ice suit and don't need to worry where t
  21. I have noticed that East of Adrian's rd after crossing pine Island a mile or so is a second road that runs closer to the border. Anyone know who it belongs to, there seems to be a great deal of traffic on it and I have looked to see if it comes off Adrian's but can't find how to access it. Does sportmans have one out that way?

    Whitefish question

    My buddy was on a dusk / night crappie bite so I joined him for a couple days of fun. He has been getting increasingly good with a smoker and said he has caught a few whitefish in past years and would love to catch a few for the smoker. Ironically, on the second day I saw a fish on the Markum a few feet under the ice and I recognized this from other catches as a potential white fish. I brought it up an nabbed a nice one. This got me thinking. Anyone know why white fish cruise so close to the top of the ice? Do minnows also cruise up high or is this a plankton thing? Or both? The crappi

    FG Knot - Diawa J-Braid x8

    It was just about two years ago when I decided to venture into a different braid line. Sufix Advance 832 braid was a preference of mine. So after receiving the Diawa braids, I gave it the good old line break test rundown on the knot to swivel. There were good results. Diawa J-Braid x8 .06 mm 6# knot break 8# 4 oz Diawa J-Braid x8 .13 mm 8# knot break 11# 9 oz Diawa J-Braid x8 .15 mm 10# knot break 13# Diawa J-Braid Grand x8 .06mm 6# knot break 6# 4 oz Diawa J-Braid Grand x8 .13 mm 8# knot break 10# 12 oz Diawa J-Braid Grand x8 .15 mm 10# knot break 16# 14 oz
  24. Maybe a dumb ? Just got a used tandem axle ice castle. When lowering...which axle pin should be removed first? The one closest to front of fish house, or the one closest to the crank? Or does it not matter?

    Sick of this $#!+

    Well, hope the title made you look. Getting real sick of the frozen tundra feel that has engulfed our neck of the woods the last week. This kinda weather ain't much fun to be outside for more than a few min at a time... Starting to go a little crazy sitting around instead of being on the ice Anybody making it out?
