We got about 4" last night.Even though the tenters by the lake didnt think so, the lakes around here sure needed that.Jessie has come up about 6" so far,but we still could use some more rain.
Some nice fish were caught before the storm including a 27" walleye.

I great we finally got some rain, hard time getting the boat off the lift, looks like more heading that way today. The eye action seems to have picked up lately, the nice eaters are hitting, put back a few big ones 19+, and another pout. That makes 4 for the year.

That's great news, using an oar to get to and away from the dock is not much fun. Jessie was as low as I've ever seen it over the 4th of July weekend, hopefully the levels will continue to rise. I caught only three walleyes for that weekend, but they were all over my 20" personal slot limit, including a 26"er, all are still swimming in Jessie.

A 'pout in the summer? Interesting, I thought dem tings only ate in the winter. LOL

Being the sensitive man I am, I also got a nasty case of swimmers itch while clearing a small area around the dock. grin.gif The look of my legs would scare away the masses. shocked.gif

Here's to hoping the rain gods continue to pour down on Jessie.

Duffman,
From what i seen from the lake those legs could scare off the masses without the itch tongue.gif. With the warmer temps anywhere on the beach in the small weeds your going to get itch. Just make sure you are wearing a suit for protection if you know what i mean. When is the next ime you are up?

Got a new boat smile.gif, Black Lund Rebel w/yam, so dont stop the blue lund, thats my son or dad.

Hey now Mike! At least I kept my shirt on! grin.gif

I'm not sure when I'll be up next. Summer plans are filling up fast. I'm camping weekends on both sides of Labor Day weekend. So I'll probably hang in the cities for the holiday weekend. Do you have a neighbor on either side of you that I could leave them aerial photo plots of Jessie with, if you are not around?

I suppose I could drop one off with Tim O at the green house wink.gif down at Jessie View. Any interest Tim?

Holy Deadheads Batman! Be careful to anyone not familiar with Jessie, I saw plenty of deadheads on my mythical Smallmouth hunt. I'm sure there have been a couple of lower units that unfortunately found them this year already.

You can leave them with Tim O or leave them with Blacky he is the Maroon cabin second from the opposite end of the road you are on. The cabin with the White Lund. I may be up next weekend and then labor day weekend.

Sure, you can leave them here with us.
Had a big deadhead right out in front of the resort in about 15' of water. It was 18" below the surface and I hit while testing a rental motor. Good thing I had the tilt lever up so there was no damage.
Went back out with the pontoon to pull it in and we could not find it. I have pulled out about 5 already this year.
We have not had any body get swimmers itch yet, but I suppose it is that time of the year.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
