RickMP-

I was out there a little on Friday night, (worked saturday) and then was on South Center for quite a bit of the day on Sunday. I drove by your place a few times looking to see if there was anybody there and never saw much!

I had my father with me and we did quite well. Both Crappie and Sunfish!

Exude, sorry I missed ya. I went up late saturday, and was there until about 1 on sunday. fished on and off, kids got a little bored, so might not have been on the water when you came by. No sunnies or crappies in our shallows yet. I'm hoping the crappies come in to spawn in the next few weeks. Did hook up with a couple walleye, too bad they aren't open yet. We'll catch up to one antother eventually. I'll be there most weekends. As long as it looks like decent weather, I'll be there next friday night, or saturday morning. And I know I'll be there for the opener. I'm coming up friday morning with the wife! See ya on the water....

Good luck in WI exude. I'd email you for those spots, but I don't have your email, it's not displayed in your profile. You can email me at [email protected] though. Thanks again for all the info and advice you've given me so far though. I'll be contacting ya for sure this summer for further bassin advice. Bass is pretty much exclusively what I fished for before moving to MN, but my knowledge base is still in the early stages. Talk to later.

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.

      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
