BBQ- I was thinking the same thing. What lakes you been hitting? I've been out goofing off for a little while and haven't been on the river in a couple of weeks. I'll get out cat hunting in the next week or two and I'll be sure to put out a post or two.
The info I gave you in the LOW forum was good, in my opinion. Give Ballard's a shot- very nice place.

Well in the last two weeks I've been to:
Big D
Sallie
Lizzie
Cotton
Lida
Ashtabula

didnt get much at Cotton and Lida but my depthfinder was broke so I had a hard time following structure
Big D I was hittin massive Largemouth up into the 5 to 6 pound range
Sallie caught about 5 pike in the 9 to 12 pound range, and even caught one at 18 pounds on my 8 weight fly rod (that was awesome)
Ashtabula, few eyes, few pike couple smallies and a whole lotta bullheads
Lizzie was fun, my first time there, handfull of crappies in the 1.5 pound range and a whole bunch of sunnies.

Im thinkin Ill have to go out with ed one of these days, I just cant quite get goin on the red, I think my fear of hitting underwater obstacles bothers me too much so i tend to stay away unless I can shorefish

Later

Heading up to Stu's Wednesday. The Red around GF is still very slow. League nights have even been hard to get a piggys in the boats.

Last week we only weighed in 12 fish out of about 42 fellas in three hours. I sure hope it turns on soon, with flooding last year and drought this year, Mr. Wiskers is gonna take a kicking again.

Second hand report- my buddy Slevee went out on the Red a couple of days ago- a few little peckers and one 18+ pound cat. He had a great tussle with it and had a blast. I wish I coulda joined him.

Ed,

A quick update on your rod- Dad just got back from LOW yesterday. Sounds like your blank is in, but he's not sure when he'll be able to get to it. He has a whole bunch of rod orders to take care of, a funeral, and some other obligations to deal with. Then he's got to get back to LOW- I think by Friday. He said that he'd get to it as soon as he could, but he wasn't exactly sure when that would be. Might be ok with the cats taking a little feeding break over the next couple of weeks, eh?

Hey BBQ, tell me a story. What fly were you using in Sallie to catch that pike. That sounds AWESOME!!!!!!! My best was a 38 incher up by Nevis last summer.
I'm taking my dad pike fishing next weekend around the D/L area. I figure to go hit sallie. Close and hopefully a good population of fish. Any other thoughts about that area. He only gets to pike fish once a year in Canada so this is a treat for him. I got him, my bro and nephew fly fishing for pike last year at LOTW. They thought it was a real kick. We're going muskie fly fishing in late JUNE. Hey good luck this summer with that fly rod. I've only been out once up by Nevis. Fished Big Mantrap and Crooked. caught a few on Buzz Baits. Caught a nice 6lb largemouth. My bud caught a 25 inch pike on a white bucktail. Water was cold about 58 to 61 degrees. saw a big muskie sunning on Mantrap. SeeYa StM

      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! 😄
