WE ARE GOING UP TO NORTH STAR LAKE ON JULY 23 FOR VACATION, I'M WONDERING IF THERE IS ANY GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE FISHING? WE HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK BEFORE BUT NO RAIN AND WATER LEVELS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. CAN ANYBODY GIVE SOME IDEAS?
THANKS DEAN

WE LIKE TO FISH EYES IF THERE HUNGRY? BUT IT REALLY DOES'NT MATTER. I DON'T REALLY GO FOR NORTHERNS. WHERE IS A GOOD SPOT FOR PAN FISHING? I ALWAYS TAKE THE FAMILLY OUT IN THE EVENING UNTIL THE BUGS SET IN. THEN WE HEAD IN TO DROP OF THE GIRLS,SOMETIMES I WILL GO BACK OUT TO TRY FOR EYES AGAIN.

HEY ESOXMN, WE WERE UP ON NORTH STAR IN JULY AND SEPT LAST YEAR AND SAW SEVERAL MUSKIES THAT HAD TO GO IN THERE 40S. WHILE STAYING AT A RESORT THERE WAS A GUY UP THERE ONLY FISHING FOR THEM AND BOATED THREE FISH 40 PLUS INCHES. NOW I DON'T FISH FOR THEM BUT CAN'T HELP TO THINK WHAT A FIGHT IT WOULD BE.WE LIVE 60 MILES SOUTH OF THE CITIES AND HAVE SEVERAL GOOD LAKES, FRENCH IS ONE. NEVER TRIED IT BUT IT DOES SOUND LIKE A GOOD TIME. NORTH STAR WAS THE FIRST PLACE MY WIFE HAS EVER SEEN A FISH THAT BIG. WE WILL BE BACK UP THERE ON JULY 23 THRU THE 31ST. WE WILL SEE HOW IT GOES AND I'LL POST A REPLY

Cool! thats the resort we are going to on the 23rd of July. Tim and karen are great people. Thanks for the response! Did you get any walleyes? We caught several last year, just off the point straight acrossed from Cedar Point Resort. I was using my camara looking for the devils when I spotted them. I will post when we return on the 31st.

i only got one on thursday night,small though. after all the fun with the northerns and muskie i didn't put alot of time into finding any walleyes. most people at the resort were saying they were also catching them just out from the resort on the end of that long bar and on deep mid lake structure. and yeah youre right tim and karen are very nice people. they should still have my pics lying out the only one they don't have is my 15# muskie but i'm mailing one out tonite. good luck.

      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! 😄

      so anyone know whats up with snowfighter???????? he hasnt posted in a long long time?????? hope all is well with him. my parents bought the cabin from his dad!!!!!!
    • Dusty
      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
