Red report and a brush with a fellow fisherman

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey Scoot-
I saw your brothers post that you guys bought a boat. I own the same boat, but mine is a '99. I beat my boat to death on Leech at the tournament this past weekend. I think you'll be very happy with it and you got a good deal. I'll keep my eyes open and see if I ever run into you with that rig.

I have been getting into the river fishing thing too and I am going to buy a duck/river boat tomorrow night. I'm buying it from a fellow FishingMN forum'er too. I'm pretty pumped because I can't take my big boat on the Red, and I really want to get into this catfishing thing. I like fishing from a boat than from the shore any day.
If your ever looking for fishing company, let me know.

Hay Scoot it was very cool to bump into you and Rod last night.

Nice to put a face to a name, and I hope my face was not too scary.

I was a bit tiered last night from a long week and was pumped for a few days off to relax and fish. I do want to hit the river with you soon, or later, or both.

Then there is today........

Due to the events of today I spent most of the day in shock while trying to sort out my emotions and make some kind of cents of this world we live in. So far I have not gained any ground in my search.

I always fail to estimate correctly mans ability to be cruel to his fellow man. I am heart sick for the many who suffer from the events that have past today.

I am now just emotionally numb, I feel the need for a river to heal me, if only temporarily.

What a tragic day!

I fished the north dam last night and was totally shut out. Had one bite and lost it before I got a good look at it. Word is the fish are starting to go a little bit on the river, but my luck stayed consistent. I retain the title "black cloud".
However, after a couple of years of chatting with him online, I finally met Backwater Eddie. I gave him a handshake and BS'd him for a while- it was good to meet him. That's one thing about this forum, you meet a lot of people who you never know where or when you might bump into them in the real world- it's pretty cool. Thanks for the info and the conversation, Ed, I enjoyed it. I was serious about the offer regarding goose hunting and I would happily team up with you if you ever need a fishing partner. After today or tomorrow I might even have a new boat (new to us at least) to fish out of- pretty pumped about it!

Sorry no pic's, I was alone and my camera was in the boat anyway. I guess you just need to take my word for it.

More were they came from, maybe next time?

Piggy's all look alike anyway.

Ed,

Thanks for the report- I'll try to check it out as soon as my schedule allows.
I spoke to my dad about the rehandling of your rod- no problem. If you need a quick turnaround (maybe a couple of days) we'll have to do a little planning because he's been really busy with "stuff". If there's no big rush I can take it whenever and get it back to you in a week or two.
Let me know.

Cool Thank's Scoot.

It is no mad rush deal for me but I would like to get it to you soon so he can have it on hand when he finds time to fix my piggy stick. I would like to have it if possable before I go to Canada in mid October hunting a SUMO greenbackius piggyus-a-souris's.

Rod really does some VERY nice work on rods! (no pun intended)

I would trust any of his creations on a world record fish any day!

Thank's again Scoot!

ED

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.
    • Walleye Guy
      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄
