Pherris,

I checked with my contact, and he said he's been too busy getting stuff done up there before winter to go fishing. He said a few people have been out but not too many. He stated that fall crappie fishing can be productive. It's just a matter of searching until you find fish. He said the south 1/3 of the north lake is a good place to start looking.

Hey, if it's going to be as nice as they say this weekend, how could you go wrong? I hope you tear 'em up.

Well we got out on Saturday about 7:00am and fished until about noon on Pine Lake. It was slow we did mark some fish but could not get them to bite. We left Pine Lake and went to Long Lake in Rutledge it connects to a very small lake called Mud Lake there we did find some really nice crappies we kept a dozen for dinner all in the 9"-12" range. Also got a bonus walleye which was pretty surprising since there are no walleyes in that lake. My guess is that it was from the Kettle River when it was high this spring. Anyway it was a nice day and we got some fish. I finally am putting the boat away but will be back out in this area when the hard water season gets going. Thanks for your replies.

Thanks for the update, Pherris. I'm glad you had a good day.

Looks like it might be a substantial wait for hardwater frown.gif

Did anyone else get out in the area this past weekend?

      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.
