Yep, I'm heading for Devil's Lake- interested? My dad and one of his buddies are going (I think), and me and one more buddy are heading out. Why don't you join us.

The plan is to head to my parents tonight, but then to leave early tomorrow morning for D.L. I have some work to do with my dad tonight, but we could meet up with you in Grand Forks in the morning if you want to do a little perch/walleye hunting on ND's ever-growing pond.

Thanks for the offer Scoot but I need to run South with a pair of clients. There be some SUMO's who need our attention down yonder.

Say Howdy to you Dad and your Bro from me. I will be puting his special SUMO deadstick rod to work the next few days. He thought I was nuts when I asked him to build it to those spech's, but it is a deady stick with circle hooks....."ups"...thats a secret.

Good hunting, I hear Tiger and Hay Bail are very good as is the mouth of Creel on the North end for eye's at dusk. Check the timber in the day and again at dusk too.

Go get-em!

I thought we might actually get to fish together! That day will come.
I'll give you a report when I get back. Good luck.

I read your report, bummer, been there done that at DL too. I heard it went slow last night from a DL guide.

We did ok down South. I wish it were a bit closer, I would be there now if I could be.

We could scrounge up 25 very nice sumo's each in 2-3 hours. Lots of other sizes to play with in-between a sumo attack, many different year classes to play with.

Some hungry pike too, they really tick me off!

They like my chubbys dang too much!

Bad gaiter, spit out my chubby!

      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! 😄
