Haven't heard a thing about Goose this year, anybody else? Was wondering about the bite and ice conditions?

right now the crappie bite is a little hit and miss. two areas over 40ft are producing but you still must move around.walleyes are being caught in the same area but they can be suspended so you must keep an eye on the flasher.northerns are very active on any shoreline structure.ice is at 20 inches.

Just curious if anyone else has noticed this. The sunfish on Goose are not plentiful but seem to run very large. I have accidently caught sunnies on Goose while crappie fishing and I have never caught small ones. Can anyone else back me up on this? Granted the size may be due to the fact I was fishing crappies; except I was using tear drops and waxies. Small sunnies could have taken these too. Just curious what others think.

Which county is the Goose Lake you are referring to? Looking to head on to the ice in the next couple days and want to try some place new.

Hey HHF!
If you try for the Goose sunnies I would be prepared to do a lot of moving and you might have a lot of perch competition. Post how you do please. I'd be curious if I'm right about the size of the sunnies in there. Thanks!

Goose is in Northern Chisago county just north of Harris. There is a access that excpts donations on the Goose Lake Narrows Road. Good Luck!

Thanks Cory!!! You seem to be all over this site! LOL I take it you are into fishing as much as me. I was searching Goose Lake on the DNR site, but there was dozens.

Also Cory, could you email me some info on Rush Lake? Like where to fish and for what species and where I can get on the lake? I'm trying out some new lakes now that me and my father don't get out as much together because of conflicts in our schedule and he was the one who knew where to go! Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! My e-mail is [email protected]

Thanks, Mike

      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.
