Well I tried it out last night, even under ominous skies the bass still bit farily well. Did very well on Watermelon seed chartruese palstics. Texas and carolina rig. Kind of a funny bite. Fish SLOW!!!

Hellabass,

You are a warrior if you were willing to fish in last night's wind/hurricane.

It really wasn't that bad out... Besides, NSC has plenty of protected areas no matter the wind.

Any word on how all this rain had affected the bass or how the bite was this past weekend?

I fished a Chisago area lake (not trying to be secretive, just speaking in general) on Sunday for bass and did fairly well. Two things I observed: One, many areas of muddy (Mississippi colored) water. You don't usually see that in lakes unless they're getting a ton of runoff. Two, green and still fairly crisp pickle grass (curlyleaf cabbage). I usually rejoice when that stuff dies and disappears because it's not usually crisp and fishable. But, right now it is and the fish are digging it.

I'm fishing a club tournament on this unspecified Chisago area lake on Sunday, so I'd prefer for the mud to dissipate and the pickle grass stay like it was this past Sunday. And, for it to be cloudy and... Well, why not ask for everything.

Hella,

Why do you have a club event this weekend on Big Marine? No, I wasn't on Big M.

The fish I caught, much to my irritation, were predominantly shallow. Slop fish, inside weedline fish, fish that I know are going to bail on me. Well, the slop fish might stay, but I know the inside weedline dudes will pull up stakes. Fortunately, I found enough weedline (a pickle grass weedline which could disappear) fish to give me alternatives.

But, it's probably better to avoid all this analysis and fish by instinct. That's why I usually don't prefish June tournaments on lakes I know. The lakes change too much this time of year.

Bornofice,

You don't consider Big Marine a Chisago Are lake do you? What were they biting on?

      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.
