My family and my buddy and his family will be staying together at Breezy Point Fri, Sat, Sunday of this weekend. We each have sons 5 years old. Would like to take the kids along fishing. Wondering generally about ice conditions and any recommendations at to lakes in the vicinity. Naturally, any info on the bite is always welcome.

Any information is appreciated. Thanks.

Ice conditions are still good with the shorelines at accesses still holding up, at least the ones I've been to. As of today, vehicles still driving out on the ice. The ice near shorelines is what you need to watch out for this time of year. I've been doing real good on the crappies lately. If you want to email me I can give you a few spots where you should have good action on crappies and gills all day. This lake is no secret, but no need to advertise. grin.gif

Made it out with the kids Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Still close to 2 feet of ice, although thinning some near shore. Fished in about 7-9 feet of water. Consistent pan fish action. Mostly sunnies and a few crappies. Couldn't keep up with the kids at points. Caught a decent bass, a 20+ walleye and a bull head on wax worms and had two lines snap on something larger than panfish. Everything back in the lake, except for a few sunnies on Sunday.

Unfortunately, probably my last time out for the ice fishing season. First time out in March. Well worth it and a good end to the season.

      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. ?

      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?

      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! 😄
