I haven't been out for a while, but I'm hoping to get out with Snoman tomorrow. Anyone else want in?

Snoman and I fished a trib of the Red last night and had a good time. Found some goldeye and catfish after a little snooping, but overall it was somewhat slow. Marked fish most of the night, but couldn't talk most into biting.
Beautiful night and good to get out. I was getting housatosis pretty bad.
Only a couple more months until the spring run here locally. Yehaa, I can't wait.

Ah...the allusive Goldeye. They hang around all night feeding, picking may be a better word for it. They can be as fussy or more so then any crappie or perch in my opinion. Ya, they can drive ya NUTS! They do love Gold AI's though Scoot, that is their weekness. wink.gif

The new Aqua-Vu SV-60 I am field Testing has shown me many looker fish I thought were walleye, are really sumo fresh water drum.

Drowsy Drum that appear to be on sedatives, you can bounce a jig off their heads and they STILL won't wake up. Ah..What...Huh...Ah...What was that?

Even in the clear water I have not seen a big bite after dark for walleye, I find that odd too? The dawn to 10 and 3-7 bite is about it for me recently. When the walleye are there, you get them to hit pretty easily. If they are not roaming much, dead sea all the way.

Good news, warmer weather on the way this week...Yip...Yip!

I will be out look'n, see what I can see, and catch.

      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! 😄
