Anyone given the river a try lately? I fished it last weekend and didn't do much. With the cold weather and the forecast the way it is, is it all over but the cryin'?
Ed, I look forward to trying a few of the spots we discussed on hardwater. I'd think they might be good spots to give a shot.
We talked about four spots that were a little deeper and might produce this winter- let's try get out and give them a shot some evening, eh?
What are your plans for the winter? My dad still is looking for things to keep him busy and I don't think you've contacted him about our discussion we had on the water. I think you should give him a call- 218-891-4415. It seems like a "no fail idea".
Did you find a gun for your son? If not, the 410 I have is still available.

Yup, it is sad but true. There may be a few open water bites left, but darn few I think.

I am watching the ice on the areas we chatted about, flow is up and it will be a while yet for sure.

We should get together and chat on the other deal some night. It would be a good plan for me to drop your Dad a call and see what his thoughts are too. I am still interested for sure!

Why don't you drop in with a pizza and that old dusty 6-pack of O-Dool's some night. I will show ya some new fish'n toys like the new Mitchell Full Runner 7500 (KEWL), we can work on a plan.

I don't know if that stuff gets skunked or not, but believe it or not, it's still in my fridge!!! I'll drop you a call or e-mail sometime and see what we come up with.

      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! 😄
