I hope all you piggy hunters are well and fit to belly up to the turkey today with friends and family. We Americans can be thankful for many things as we live in a land of plenty.

Enjoy the holiday and say a prayer for our men and women in service to our country, and for all in need who are less fortunate in these trying times we all live in.

God Bless.

Happy Turkey-Day to all (one day late). Dittos on the wish to the guys and gals who fight for something bigger than any of us.
Ed, the offer still stands if you'd like to get out and smack some honkers. I've had pretty good luck lately.
Any recent word from the Red around here?

Eh Scoot, would be fun doing the feather bag hunt deal but I am not set up for it this season, but thanks for the offer man.

The Red has been good for some and not so good for me, slow most days recently. If you slip jig the most likely areas they would hold walleye during the day you will find a few good fish, some piggys too.

If the weather holds I hope to get out again this afternoon and see if they are willing to play mouth the jigs. Cranks have been dead the past week for me. Jigs and floating rigs have produced the best on average tipped with big fathead minnows. White appears to be the best jig color followed by orange.

      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. ?

      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.

      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! 😄
