Big C and Swedes Grove

Recommended Posts

Well I got out for one more last chance effort (unless it stays above freezing) this last weekend. I braved the cold on Big Commorant on Saturday and lost one very nice fish that probably would have gone 8lbs. I only had him side hooked on shadrap and he did the old spit and run while I was reaching for my net.

I noticed they were biting on minnows quite well, fatheads I think out by the Y. I did not have any with me since I only had a few hours to fish and be back in Moorhead by noon for a meeting. Some guys parked not too far from me by the Y and I wathced them pull in one eye after another. Makes me just sick I did not have any minnows. I couldn't get them to go for raps, jigs, berkly gulp, nothing. Oh well it was still time on the water.

On sunday I was not quite as willing to fish in the waves so I headed on over to Swedes Grove were I took a nice limit of eyes 18"+.

When the fish werent biting I got some awesome photos of the lake and some ducks. I will try and post and share them in a little bit.

Paul, could you drop me a line? I've got a couple questions if you wouldn't mind, as I was thinking of burning up my remaining gas and heading to Big C this weekend.

P --

How are the fish tasting up there during this time of the year. Is the water level down? Are they starting to drain it?

Thanks

The water is kinda low but not to bad I guess, the landing is always a pain in the arse. I saw no signs of drainage. I notice that south of the lake is a waterfowl mamagent water. I didn't think they could drain stuff liek that, I know there were a bunch of post about swedes earlier this year but I did not see any sign of trouble.

Well, I talked to Bruce with Buffalo River Watershed and he said they are going to do it. When? Who knows.

Thanks for the update.

So the fish tasted ok?

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok..I got it wired directly to the motor battery. 12.44 bolts to the plug. Good. Unit powers on like normal. All is well until I get it on the water. Only question.. since there's power going non stop to that plug. Do I risk draining the battery? I take the unit off when I trailer the boat. 12.44 volts

      I'd be surprised if the lake is entirely open by Opener. I almost needed at auger extension eight days ago when I was up there.
