I put in my order for a rod with your dad at the end of last week. It is going to be for my dad and I can't wait to see the look on his face. I ended up getting the St. Croix Legend Elite blank and the zirconia guides. It should be a pretty sharp looking rod when he gets done with it. Thanks for putting me in contact with your dad. From the way he talked, he was hammering the fish up there on the big lake. Thanks again.

Glad you got ahold of him. Judging by your description, you didn't screw around- you got your dad a kick butt rod! He must have been as good to you over the years as my dad has been to me. That rod will be one sexy looking rig with those guides and that blank. I'm sure you'll be happy, but probably not as happy as your dad!
Judging by their reports, it's been the proverbial "molly-hocking" up North. They catching lots of fish and lots of nice fish. I'm heading up on Thursday night and according to my calculations, fishing should take a turn for the worse about Friday morning at about 6:00 a.m. They don't call me "Black Cloud" for nothin'.
I hope you're really happy with the rod. If you are, report back in here and let my dad know you were happy with the finished product.

huntnfish,

I spoke to my dad last night and it sounds like he's heading home today. He figures he can have your rod done by the time I go back through Fisher on Sun. If it works out, I'll grab the rod and get it to you early next week. How's that for service!?!

That sounds great. I'm not really in any kind of a hurry to get it, as long as it is before the end of the summer. Let me know if you do get a chance to pick it up. Thanks.

      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?

      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! 😄
