Guess not. My kid won a prize, so that was cool. It would have been nice if they had actually bothered to enforce the rule about no augers after the tourney started though. We had people drilling holes all around us all day...kinda annoying.

I was there and yeah it seemed like that there was alot of drillin going on during the contest. I cought one big perch about 3min in and that was it for the rest of the day. G/f was with and she got nibbles but nothing held on. Seemed to be alot of youngsters winning prizes this year.

I caught about a 3 oz perch right away, and that was it for me...I mostly just watched my kid fish and helped him as needed. The only bummer was that the fish 1 spot smaller than him won a new auger and one spot bigger won a portable fish house, but his spot won a junky cooler and little chair!

It should be noted that while dad was disappointed with that, son didn't care a bit, and was thrilled that he won a prize. Which is probably a better way to look at it smile

They REALLY need to enforce the auger rule next year...it's been bad the last couple years. Other than that though, a VERY well run event.

You should be VERY proud that you had your kid out there and he was able to enjoy the sport of fishing and he even was a prize winner. We have a ton of kids now days who don't have the chance to enjoy this sport. I was hoping to make it out there and bring my boy's but the promotional side of this industry had me locked up this past weekend.

I'm always happy to take my boy out, and when little boy #2 (now 15 months old) is ready, he'll be welcome too smile

Do I get to do a lot of actual fishing? Heck no smile It's mostly baiting hooks and teaching, but I couldn't care less. I'm just glad that I'm able to give him opportunities I never had as a kid, and I know that SOME day he'll be able to do that stuff on his own, and I can get back to fishing smile

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
