Found a tackle box up on Lake Osakis this morning. It wasn't in any of the community spots or I wouldn't of found it with amount of guys up there. LOL!  Wow you would think the Caughren point area was the only place to catch and sight fish.They should of been there a week and a half ago when we found them fresh 😲   Glad I have better spots where social or should I say solo distancing was happening 😉 If anyone lost one out there off the beaten path I found it feel free to PM me with the contents and Ill get it back to you somehow. If nobody claims it I'll donate it to a kid (and No not you Smurfey 😂) to get him a good start into ice fishing some good stuff in there!

Hope you can get that box back ro it rightful owner iceyhawk! 

 

Not all of us spend every day on that same lake... so we fish where the crowd is sometimes😏 

Take yesterday for example, Tommy and I hit 7 spots between us, picking up junk fish with a good one now and then pretty much everywhere.... so by mid day I was wore out from walking and drilling... We too opted to fish the point area... btw also a lot of junk fish there ... infact that whole noth end has been a lot of junk since early ice.  Skinny fish, lots of parisites and some strange greyish mold in the meat of two fish I tossed in the garbage... Big O really isnt what it used to be😏

I very much congratulate you on wanting to find the owner and getting it back to him , not all would surely do that , much to be said about your ethics , well done !  I hope the owner does indeed get ahold of you but would suggest the returning to him waits until after all settles down . With the shelter in place order that begins tonight , the owner going to your place to get it , or you going to his place to get it to him  becomes impossible to do as that surely is not necessary travel what so ever .. I guess if you could somehow package it up in a box after sanitizing it , place sufficient postage on it and only if you have mail service at home , because a trip to the post office would not be able to be done with shelter in place , then it could be sent to him , but with that said he would have to have direct mail to his house service also because the same would hold true for him not being able to go to his post office to retrieve it ...  I hope you all do your part .  If the owner never reaches out to you your plan to give it to a kid sometime down the road sounds like a splendid answer to this dilemma..

Hopefully I do  find the owner it had some good stuff in there. It would be nice to see someone get it back we have all been there on lost or forgot a item it stinks! 

 

HMM 😀 but you do on others didn't you just have a photo and post up couple weeks ago about how you fished hard for 5 weeks on the same lake  best local bite you've seen  and had to be in a certain cabbage bed.with numerous 9's released  😉LOL!   Glad you and Tommy dialed some in yesterday was a beutifull day better weather then todays up there. Sight fishing is a hoot! I thought  the gills were real thick this year infact  bunch of us commented on it. That grey mold your talking about can't say I saw it in any of my fish all winter up there wonder what it was ? Has me concerned but never heard any of guys I know that fished there mention it. Did find a couple with worms but very very few. I would beg to differ on Osakis having all junk fish on that N end it was a strong year out there. Where we were fishing by ourselves was about as good as you could get. Especially out of the bay and in the main lake.  I know few other guys that had great bites out there some you know.👍  Definitely not the numbers of 10's like years past that I will agree but still plenty of 9 inch plus fish and some sumo craps. Tossed back 2 over 14 this year.  She might not be what she once was but I love it!  Looking forward to open water out there for sure!

We were going to indian leg wrestle but opted out with social distancing going on. It honestly didn't take much twisting or convincing. LOL! I'm always up to fish 👍

      It's truly amazing how social media has transformed our lives.   Seems like not too long ago there was no such thing as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok.    Where did you go for fishing information, research, brotherhood and fellowship?   You spent a lot of time at bait shops, reading magazines and newspapers, or you dialed up into a fishing discussion bulletin board on the world wide web.   I'm a geek who preferred the electronic version so I spent A LOT of time online reading everything I could on web forums and discussion boards.  I came to find a primary home here with Fishing Minnesota in roughly 2000.   I dove in and met a lot of great fishing and personal friends.  I was provided the opportunity to get involved with the marketing side of fishing and learned quite a bit about the business of fishing.  
      I've been saddened to see how participation in forums such as this and others I follow, have crashed with the growing popularity of other platforms.
       
      What brings me here though today is to stop by and say hi to all my old fishing friends.  About 4 years ago I started a Catfish/Sturgeon guide service.  It has been growing steadily each year and one of the reoccurring themes I seem to experience is how many of my guests refer to Fishing Minnesota Dot Com and how they came to recognize me and my activity there from years ago.   
       
      For several years this site reigned supreme when it came to current fishing news and information and a place where everyone was here to help and became a brotherhood for many.  While there was always some political stuff tossed in, for the most part it was a place to forget about the world and focus on our favorite past time.    Oh how times have changed.....   
       
      I hope everyone is doing well and pushing through all the background noise in todays world.  What we are currently experiencing does not bode well for our mental health and I hope things change soon before we find ourselves in another 1863 Gettysburg.
       
      I'll share a great experience I had the other night with a Mother/Daughter captured by Ben Garving (Award winning KARE11 photojournalist).   He really did a great job in capturing what happens when you forget about outside things for a while and spend time with family and just sit back and enjoy our great outdoors.   No matter your political views or your thoughts on our natural resources and how they are managed, this is something we can all come together and embrace. 
       
      Take care!

      Yup, I started it. Seeing people post about water temps in the low 40s, and knowing that there will be a lot of cold temps this week....we may see the small bays freeze. I have a vested interest as I'd like to make it up next weekend, but have strong doubts that our small bay will be ice-free. Let's hear those reports as the lake begins to change.

      So the weather really tanked!! I was hoping to fish until November before winterizing the boat.
       
      Anyone been out...either reservoirs or up Hwy 53? Any idea of when landings start pulling docks...probably on DNR site huh?

      I'm looking to buy a Ski Doo Skandic snowmachine.
      Would prefer the 600 e-tec engine, but will consider any.
      2010 or newer.
      PM with particulars.
      If it would help, I have a 2003 Ski Doo Tundra with the single cylinder engine, for trade, excellent condition.
      Thanks

      Heading up to V the first weekend in October. Aside from the casino and The Landing, where can you boat to for lunch?

      Fishing Ottertail this past weekend we used my sons boat with a Humminbird Helix 9 Si/Di - Follow the Contour GPS. I also put my Vex SonarPhone one side mount which links to the Boating app. I recorded a track on the boating app with the Humminbird following a 16 ft. contour. As you can see on the Boating App track with Sonar video, ls off a fair distance from the Bird depth track. The boating app is a great tool for planning, searching fishing areas and fair on  GPS contours. Both Humminbird and Boating use the Glonass GPS system so no differance between long/lat location.

      Nice little unit that I just removed from a used boat recently bought. Everything seems to look and operate perfectly. Includes graph with mounting bracket, battery cable (fused) and transducer with mount. Buy new elsewhere for $169 or here used for $50. Can ship if you cover the cost.
       
      Here is the mfg description:
       
      The Lowrance Elite-4x Fishfinder, which includes an 83/200 broadband transducer, transmits sonar to track the presence and movement of targets beneath your boat. When you use this device, you’ll know when you’re in the right spot. This innovative fishing aid lets you enjoy your sport with a new level of confidence, even when you venture into new and unfamiliar waters. Its advanced electronics perform well in a wide variety of settings, including lakes, rivers, and marine coastlines.The 4.3-inch LED screen offers an impressive clarity in part because of the built-in noise rejection technology. This specially designed, high-resolution LED color display weighs 3.4 pounds and measures 3.8 by 6.6 by 2.2 inches, making it a compact finder that is perfect for those with kayaks or other small vessels.This design includes all of the features of the HDI Series but with the addition of special sonar technology. This model includes GPS and chart plotting capabilities. It also features a detailed U.S. map with high-definition mapping of more than 3,000 lakes, rivers, and coastal areas down to 1,000 feet. The addition of CHIRP sonar allows you to identify underwater targets more quickly. It also allows you to see targets at higher boat speeds, saving you time.This lightweight and compact finder includes advanced electronics commonly found in larger, more expensive models. The one-thumb operation of the page selector menu gives you fast and easy access to all the fish finder’s features. You’ll save time and get excellent results with Advanced Signal Processing, which reduces the need for manual adjustments. You’ll view the bottom detail, lake structures, and fish that you’re looking for more quickly and precisely. You can also avoid obstacles like submerged branches and rocks thanks to this device. TrackBack technology allows you to go back over the sonar history to check lake structure and fish targets for future reference. The TrackBack feature allows you to save a waypoint, eliminating the need to circle back and retrace your path. This model also supports DownScan imaging.The unit runs on 12-volt DC power. The CHIRP technology operates between 83 kHz and 200 kHz. The DownScan imaging system works with a 455/800 kHz transducer. The Lowrance Elite-4x Fishfinder can be set to a useful range of fishing modes. The Conventional sonar can be kept in General Use Mode or set to modes for fishing in shallow water, deep water, brackish water, fresh water, or clear water. There is also an ice fishing mode. These settings can help you see in water depths ranging from 60 feet to 1,000 feet.
