This sounds like a good deal, Wiskers. You might want to post this info in the D.L. forum and the main ice fishing forum as well. Get the word out. I'm not sure I'll have this weekend open or not, but if I do I'd like to come up and meet you and some of the rest of the crew. Is Ed coming up for it? I'll have to ask him about that next time I talk to him.
One question, how much is it to enter? Might want to post that so people know. Sounds like a really fun event- good work!

Have fun Wiskers! I wish I could come, but my wife's got me signed up to play in a volleyball tourney for the weekend. It'll be fun, but not as much fun as fishin the Red Lake. Be sure and give us a report after the festivities are over.

Well we had a pretty good turn out for our first every Ice Buster Daze.....

We sold 67 tickets, Caught 3 fish.. 2 walleyes and one Sauger.

47 entries for the Radar runs.

The dance went over very well.

We had enough prizes for every fisherperson to get a prize of some sort and even onlookers got prizes.

Over all we think it was a success and have more ideas for next year.

I even seen two FMers here. Thanks for your support fellas. That is what this is all about.

Bruce,"Today's Tackle", did a great job and helped out a lot. We are excited about starting for next year alerady. Hope more of you can make it up here.

It was cold and fun. It was great to have pretty much everyone win something. Thanks to everyone who was involved in the event. Hopefully next year I can catch a fish.

Hey thanks fellas... Our goal was to make it as fun as it could be even if the fish were playing hard to get.

Three fish is not a whole lot but it was more fish than the Frosty Bobber this year.. At least that is a bonus. LOL...

Wroking on next year as of now..

      I will try to make it Nick.  Should be a go unless a I have a grand kid birthday party to attend.

      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! 😄
