Recommended Posts

pout-slayer

Has anybody been out on Island or sturgen lately.I'm just wondering how the ice conditions are,and if there is even a road left after this last blizzered we had.Last time I was out on Island( 3 weeks ago) we were catching craps in 35-40ft of water.If anyones been out there recently could you tell me if the're still out deep or have they moved in towards the shallows yet.Any info would be helpfull,thanks.

looks like I'll be answering this one myself.A buddy and I headed out to catch some crappies on island but when we got to the public landing it wasn't plowed and as far as we could see there were no tracks from anyone heading out to fish.this was 3/11 in the am. Hopefully a road will be plowed out to the crappie spot.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
