Hey Ed,

Anything worth giving a shot on the Red over the weekend?

Not sure yet?

Wacky weather is of no help at all. If so, it will be at points South of you and I Scoot. If you’re up for a short road trip, we may be on some eyes from shore this weekend? Hit and miss yet at best?

Sunday sounds better then Saturday for weather so far, who knows?

Not long after my last post I started getting sick. I've spent a bunch of the past few hours "chuckin'". What fun. If I don't feel better it looks like I might be stuck sitting inside doing nothing (I suck at doing nothing- I hate it.)

Scoot do you remember the last place we chatted in person? Think now?

I have started to get some 16-23" walleye there. Not a bunch, but a few. I had only 1 in the keeper range the rest were in the toss back range.

Remember only 2 under 18" a day now if you go. (I will be watching close to make sure folks fallow the spring conservation slot laws too. As will the boys in green with the long eyes.)

I did my best of Bombers in green and white. Jigs sure should work if a guy has some nice fat fatheads to tip them with. I didn't have any live bait on hand when I tested the spot out.

Maybe see ya there tonight?

Ed,

I didn't see your post until now otherwise I'd have been down there with you. Sounds like maybe it's time to start banging the shorelines looking for some eyes- yeeeeha!
Actually, I don't know if I'll be able to get down there for a while. I'm doing the in-law/parents thing over the next couple of days, then I'll hunt snows on Mon, work Tues and Wed., then it's up to the Rainy to give the spring run a shot.
I hope I can get a boat in up North- I've got a buddy coming from Wis. and another one coming from Ariz. who are both regulars up there with me. Both have been reading internet reports on the ice and we're all skeptical, yet hopeful, about getting a boat in. I guess we'll just have to wait and see and be hopeful.
Thanks for the report. I'll be down there as soon as I can be. As for the limits and size restrictions- I'm not one to worry about. I put 'em all back in the Red (no, I don't think there's anything wrong with them, I just love to catch 'em). I can't wait to get down there and give it a shot.

You didn't miss too dang much tonight Scoot.

A few 12-13" eyes and they were real touchy to hook.

Bring on the sun, more sun = more fun I think?

I will be headed South this weekend, may be better down that way?

See ya on the muddy banks soon.

      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.

      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! 😄
