Well, my friend john and I just got back from Cats on the Red. The piggys had the feedbag on. We fished hard but we caught about 1000lbs of fish in 2 days. the biggest was 24lbs and the smallest was in the low teens.

What a great trip.
The water temps were in the mid to low 60s. We caught fish below the dam and in the first 3 miles of river.
I am already anxious for next season.

Great Report, I am off to Lockport and Cats on the Red tomorow, third trip of the year, have to get my fill until next year. Hope to test out my new halibut net, one new rod, what a great place, what worked best for you? We are bringing frogs, and shrimp, last year at this time tullibies worked the best. How low was the water?

The water was low but it was still easy to navigate. I found the fish up close to the dam some, and along the channel edges further down stream. We did not fish any further than 3 miles from the dam.

Tullibee was available at Stu's but I seined suckers and froze them before the trip. I had great luck on the suckers. I think your frogs will work great.

Good Luck.

Have a good trip Rusty, sorry I missed your call, I was out goose hunting. I knew you called me last week at work, but I was busy and had LOW on my mind for the weekend. I didn't realize you were going today. Take pics! Are you taking Tim? Leave'm up there. Later, and have fun.

Mu Owwie is healing up pretty darn well, must be them horse pills? The deal is I have to stay near home for a while yet, other job commitments. I have 3 balls in the air right now and looking away would be a bad deal Eh.

I will not likely get back North until mid October now by the looks of things. Maybe a bit sooner if the weather is fair?

Go get um, catch a few for me while your at it too.

      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! 😄
