it has been so crazy this year i finally
got in a cat' day yesterday. I was surprised and pleased at the landing at MB Johnson being so easy in and out, no mud problems, it was geat. the goldeye weren't very cooperative we only could catch one so i dug out my waterdogs and a couple reserve suckers. The cats were pecking in the morning and being fussy for us but we had a good midday. We landed 8 nice cats the biggest at 29" which was sent back in to swim around again. I thought the bite was tough for us. I wondered if the other 2 rigs i saw at the landing caught anything or if anyone else experienced a little slowness. or we just can't fish!!!! what a great time i could do that everyday! I am jealous of Backwater ED! It was nice to just go fish for fun and relax. I also caught a big old snapper downstream from the landing a mile or so. Do the goldeye go hot and cold just like any other fish? they weren't even jumping much. still had a blast.

I was out fishing on Saturday morning (September 7) south from the Convent landing. I was using frozen goldeye for bait and caught some cats, but the fishing has seemed to slow down some from how the catfish bite was in August. It is still great to get out on the river to fish though. Hopefully the walleye bite will get hot soon. Bruce

Goldeye have been hard to get now. I was out on the Red tonight and tried to catch some goldeye for bait with no success. I tried many of the spots and techniques that worked earlier in the season but that didn't work tonight! I froze some goldeye that I caught earlier so they have been nice to have for times like this when the goldeye aren't cooperating. I acually like to use frozen goldeye better than fresh goldeye. The frozen goldeye stays on the hook better and and is easier to use with less mess. The cats don't seem to mind the "goldeye popsicles" either! Bruce

      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?

      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! 😄
