Heading up for our annual house boat trip the weekend after labor day.

Recommended Posts

Kylersk

We normally stay on the east side on the northern shore (north of pine island area).

Looking for tips this year. How deep? What's working? Anything really. Every year we usually end up fishing a little more than the year prior. I hope to actually have our first fish fry this year! We usually just end up playing cards and enjoying adult beverages and never seem to find much time to fish. smile.gif

Also, is there a fire ban going on? Or has that been lifted?

If you'd rather send tips via email, I'd appreciate that as well. Kylersk at yahoo (Contact Us Please) com.

Thanks in advance.

Fish are spread out but it sounds like they are starting to move towards their fall areas. Fire ban is still on. Only propane grill are allowed, no charcoal.

News Releases

Additional Changes in Fire Restrictions are Announced (2007-08-30)

The recent rainfall has somewhat lessened, but not eliminated, the potential threat of wildfires in Northeastern Minnesota. Cook, Lake and St. Louis counties have been under the most severe open burning restrictions in the state. As of 8 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 31, these restrictions will be slightly eased to allow the use of charcoal grills. Charcoal grill use will be allowed in Cook, Lake and St. Louis counties within 100 feet of a permanent residence or cabin. Additionally, in southern St. Louis County, campfires and charcoal fires will be allowed in patrolled campgrounds or resorts, the same as they are presently allowed in campgrounds along the Lake Superior shore.

In restrictions issued previously, campfires and charcoal fires were limited to the hours of 6 p.m. to midnight at patrolled campgrounds and resorts within one mile of Lake Superior. The eased restrictions now allow campfires in patrolled campgrounds and resorts in that part of St. Louis County south of a line defined as: from the west county line, east on State Highway 1 to U.S. Highway 53, then south to County Highway 16, and east on County Highway 16 to the St. Louis County line.

The U.S. Forest Service will continue to prohibit charcoal grills, campfires, or charcoal fires in national forest campgrounds throughout the Superior National Forest.

“The recent rainfall has allowed us ease restrictions on charcoal grills and campfires in these areas,” said Larry Himanga, Minnesota DNR wildfire prevention specialist.

“We ask that members of the public living and recreating in these counties exercise extreme caution if they choose to use their charcoal grill, Himanga said. “Make sure all coals are dead out, and utilize a metal or fireproof container for ash disposal. Also, have a ready source of water nearby to douse coals after use. Never dispose of charcoal ashes in any type of vegetation.”

General restrictions remain in effect for the following counties: Aitkin, Beltrami, Carlton, Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Kanabec, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Todd and Wadena. In these counties there is to be no open burning, including the use of burning barrels. However recreational fires or campfires are allowed in a designated fire receptacle designed for such use provided it is associated with a residence, dwelling, campground or resort.

"Rainfall has temporarily eased the fire hazard in these counties," cautioned Fire Suppression Supervisor Ron Stoffel. "If periodic rainfall is not received restrictions could be reinstated."

"Although significant rainfall fell across most of northern Minnesota, higher fire danger is expected to resume by the weekend. Many areas are at half of their normal rainfall. More than one shower will be needed to reverse the extended drought conditions," said Himanga.

Labor Day weekend travelers are asked to be mindful of fire restrictions in northern Minnesota and to take care using any fire outdoors including smoking. Additional fire information can be found at www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/fire and www.fs.fed.us/r9/forests/superior.

Kylersk,

The walleyes are biting very well now.

Lindy rigs,jigs, and spinners are all working great. Minnows or crawlers are the best baits.

12' to 20' or 28' to 36' are the best depths.

The walleye bite has turned into a mostly minnow as bait bite this week.

Also, (If you are K-dog)if you know anyone that wants to join us, let me know (call chuck).. We had 2 people drop this past weekend.. and are down to only 7 guys. Which stinks...

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!
    • jigginjim
      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
