Hi ironmike: I live right in the area. As far as the Bass fishing goes your best luck is probably going to be on the Snake river between the two lakes. Plastic baits (crawfish and worms) probably the best bet. If you fish the river, fish near the old wooden bridge just off the mouth of the pokegama outlet. Also watch out for rocks coming down the river. The High water helps but there are some spots that are not marked and you can nail them so go slow. Good luck and hope this enough info to get ya started.

to iron mike: Using the public access in Pine City I usually will go down river and under the freeway bridge on the right side you will see a littl red cabin on the island, also on the right side go through a small chanel going in to a little pond type of water on back side of the cabin which also you can sneak even back farther in which is another type of pond, this area I have fished for Musky- but have landed nice Bass on 4in top walker made by Ciezo which is a plug for Musky but dont be fooled by this type of plug because I hit on to a lot of Bass in river area: using trolling slow or even casting frog look or orange type.
Also on Pokegena there is a island on North end usually work area with same plug, also go across from Island and there is a small channel type going in to area off the lake by itself tried using a little wood plug that looks like a 2in small mouse made by Hell Raiser= works well when fish dont want nothing big the mouse type plug is Pink bodied with brown hair on tail hook part on end.
have a good fishing 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.
