Steve, Thanks for coming through with the "Marcnifier". And thank you Piedmont angler for such a cool tool for my ice fishing arsenal! I used it tonight and wow, that thing is awesome. Makes it so much easier to sit in the chair and see everything on the Lx3. Went out on Grand tonight solo. Everything I have been hearing is true. The dead sea. Funny. A few weeks ago you could go out there on a weekend and there were people everywhere. Tonight and last night only a few party's fishing. I hope they had better luck than me. Oh well, it's close to home. I will be trying another spot I have not tried yet there with my daughter tomorrow. Hopefully she can hook something. Not even a snake northern today! BC

I might take you up on that Steve. Was out on Grand again today, only because it was so nice out. A big fat goose egg. A few people got into some slimers, but only one lost lure due to a sharp toothed critter. I will keep an eye on the forecast and maybe we could hook up. I haven't fished the point in the winter for around two years so I'm overdue. I will keep in touch. BC

Thanks BC. I was at Big Jig today and sold out the rest of the mag covers I had with me. Everybody that saw them immediately jumped at the offer, especially the guys that were wearing glassed or bifocals. coolgringrin

Back to production on another batch this week.

If anyone has questions on what they'll fit, email me.

      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.
