I went fishing Sunday evening

Caught 4 pike in about an hour. The biggest was about 7 pounds. I saw 2 other boats catch fish. They were still working the shallow water (8-10) feet. Their fish were hammerhandles. I fished 15-20 with a perch colored deep diving storm plug. The bigger pike seem to love this plug and the deeper water this time of year. I think I might have had a bigger fish on as well but the hooks pulled out. I had a ball but have been too busy to get out for any length of time. Anyone else got a report. P.S. I released all of my fish.

Hey Erik!
Was that on Green? I've been on vacation since last Thursday the 8th. We went out to Pelican lake by Glenwood. The fishing stunk for the most part, but I did manage to get one walleye about 17 inches. I caught that trolling a storm deep thunderstick in perch color in 19 feet.

On our second to last day (tuesday the 13th) my 7 year old son Jonathan, who has cerebral palsy, started having seizures. We went to the Glenwood ER and from there Jonathan and I took an ambulance ride to Gillette childrens in St. Paul. Jonathan was there a couple of days for tests and such. We are back home and he is fine, but now is on seizure meds which leave him tired....Anyway, didn't want people to think I dropped off the planet. Later.

Mistermom, sorry to hear about your son's misfortune this past week. We all want to take a vacation to escape and it appears your and your son's escape was rather short lived. It's rather difficult to transition from real life issues to fishing but I'll give it a run. I was out on East Twin again. It's three miles from my door so when time is short I go there.

Thanks Erik. Jonathan is pretty much back to his old self again. Meaning that while I'm typing this he's watching "Toy Story". The kid hates to go to bed!

You know a 7lb northern nowadays is a real nice fish. Sad to say but its tough to catch them much bigger than that near the metro. A few years ago a friend of mine caught a 19 lb out of the Rum in a deep hole that's known as "Peterson's hole". Its NW of Cambridge off county road 14. Later.

      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.
