An interesting thing happened to me last weekend when I was fishing. I was fishing for crappies in 34ft of water with the crappies suspended 10ft off the bottom. The bite was going fine. When all of a sudden I noticed my transducer move. It kinda freaked me out. I looked down the hole to see the nose of a nice sized northern sitting there. It was quite shocking. The darn thing had tried to grab my transducer. My transducer was just under the ice. Over the course of the next 1/2 hr I saw him about 5 times. I guess the ticking of the transducer attracted him. I could see it happening in shallower water but not at 34ft. An hour later about forty yards away (we had moved my portable) my buddy caught a hammer handle and I was going to help him get it out of the hole when I noticed that another pike had followed the other one up to the hole. It may have been the same one we had seen before because it had a scar on the left side of its mouth much like the first one had. Has any one seen this happen before. It was cool to see but very weird.

Guys who use Aqua-views and other types of underwater cameras commonly have fish, especially Pike and Muskies hit the lens and they get to witness it, kind of neat! I suppose If I was a fish I would be curious enough to hit it. If fish are anything like guys chasing women in Alaska, they too hit everything they see! Hehe.

I was fishing on Gunflint lk. a few yrs. ago and I had the same thing happen to me. I saw my transducer float move, I thought my line hit it but then it moved again. I looked down the hole and there was about an 8# laker trying to have my transducer for lunch. Pretty strange, we're going to have to figure out how we can put trebs on them.

Transducers look alittle like huge water beetles! Can you imagine if a pike took a bite at your transducer, cut the insulating wire, and you had to buy a new transducer!

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
