Don,

Thanks for the information and welcome to FishingMinnesota.com.

Where's Cambrige? Is that near Cambridge? wink.gif Sorry, just tugging your chain a little.

We're glad to have you on board, Don.

Don-

Welcome!! I havn't been out there yet. I think I'll try this week if it warms up just a tad to around 15-20 degrees.

Any size to the Crappies? Last year, lots of real small ones averaging 6 1/2-7 inches.
I might have been in a bad location.

Don,

Sorry, dude. I hope I didn't scare you away.

Unfortunately, you can't change your User Name. You have to re-register under another name. So, "Don in Cambrige" will live forever.

BTW - I thought "Cambrige" looked wrong. But, I still had to look around to find out how to spell it. If it weren't for spell checkers, my posts would look like a 1st grader typed it (or a teacher). wink.gif

NO i did'nt get scared away but cambridge was just too original. Anyhow this lake just is not working for me. Can anyone tell me a good lake around here for eyes. I do all of my fishing at night so that's all i am looking for.

Thanks for the laugh ray.

Don,

I'd consider hiking over to Rush if you're interested in walleyes. Lots of point and lots of humps that have after dark potential.

And, if you ask Cory (Coryntracysellhomes) here real nice, he can give you some real good general info on the eyes out there. He lives on the lake and actually fishes it, so he knows what's going on.

ExudeDude,

You actually were one up on me. You insulted my vintage ice house. I got over it, but my ice house still hasn't. Poor thing.

I'll retract my teacher comment as I have a sister-in-law that thinks she's a smart teacher. Again, I kid. I'm just jealous of all you teachers. 3 months off. Boy did I miss my calling.

Goose Lake can put out some decent Northerns too. The bay where you access on the NE end is a good place to start.

Sorry, Don. I was just giving Exudedude a bad time. I'm kind of punchy since I haven't fished since last Thursday.

D-O-Cambrige,

As far as Walleye's go it is not a good lake, they don't(per the DNR) naturally reproduce. They do stock it on an every other year basis.

Pike fishing can be good, taking in consideration, times and conditions.

North Center! Any offshore structure was holding an abundance of dinky walleyes.

Like I said, so much for my hot tips. Unless dink walleyes are the game for someone.

      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.
