I sure wish I could help with this one there Scoot, but my temps aren't reading either on my depth finder. I do know that its still colder then it should be this time of year. Maybe trun around this weekend, man that would make for a nice Fouth. Whats your plans.

We got our temp guage working on the boat. Last night the temp of the Red was 67. Witht he forecast the way it is, cats should be spawning very soon as the water temps spike quickly this week.

Kent, I'll be at White Earth with Janna's crew. Sounds like you'll be headed to LOW. I wish I could be up there, but it's not in the cards for me. I'd guess you'll have some good fishing as the water temps increase over the next few days. Reports are good for yesterday and the day before.
Good luck!

River temps here are about 72-74 now.. However with the cold nights at only 50.. who knows what that will do to the temps and the spawn???? Man summer is never going to get here.. ...............

Well with the cold nights and all the rain the water temps here have dropped to 62*. However the cats are eating good now.. I went out last night with a couple buddies and we landed over 60 cats. in just a few hours.

Sounds very post spawn like, eh Wiskers? It'd be nice to see the fish on the chew really good for the weekend. Sounds like timing might be great.

      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! 😄
