unless they have changed it, no you cannot, and i wouldnt suggest going out on them as there are a lot of springs in them.

No fishing on the pits til opener.Serpent and Mille lacs are kicking out eyes for me.Plenty of panfish oppertunities in the area,just pick a lake.Perry,Mahnomen and Rabbit are good choices.Are you from Cuyuna,I live in Deerwood.I am always looking for someone to fish with.

Can someone give me some fishing info on perry lake? I have a place down the road on adney lake. I guess any help with either lake would be great. What kind of fishing does perry offer? I have tried adney last week and caught 2 small crappies and some perch, sunnies and a couple little northerns. I was hoping for more luck with the crappies, is perry a better lake? How about smaller walleyes lake nearby? Shoot me a email at [email protected]

Perry is a good crappie lake, no big mansters, most in the 8-9 inch range. Some good sized pike in it as well, they just love to harass the fish looking camera. It has one 20-22 foot hole around where all the hosues are set up. Good Luck.

well near riverton there is the rowe,then out in the main mines near mahnomen lake(not the pit)the louise,the mangan,the hopkins,and just outside of ironton there is the armour.you can see armour on the right side of CR30 where the road loops around pennington,it is the one behind the crosby city garage,the crick from serpent lake actually dumps into it.most people dont realize that after the flowage leaves armour it goes thru mahnoman,and little mahnoman,pasco lake,into little rabbit and ends up to the mississippi.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
    • plot0015
      thank you!   and thank you for the advice... i will try it out in my boat this week, and report back
    • leech~~
      Welcome to the forum.   Go try it out in 5 feet of water before you write it off.  The older units need a pretty solid water column to send the echo back and forth.  Good luck.

      So i recently picked up a Zercom Clearwater Classic for 15 bucks off craigslist....     I fired the unit up and the LCD screen works, back light works, and when i plug the transducer in, i can hear the transducer "clickling" (i can see a slight change in the LCD lines when i plug the 'ducer in....so its almost like it recognizes that its there....) but as i'm messing with it i can't get it to see my hand or the floor...  (ie. the LCD lines never move off 2 ft)   I thought it might be the Transducer.... but this 'ducer has an old school RCA jack the reminds me of the old Red/White/Yellow cables from my Nintendo....(see image)  Obviously zercom isn't around anymore so getting a tranducer is brutal.   Marcum bought zercom, but they couldn't help when i reached out to them.  Called Fishlectronics, they didn't have anything....    See the pictures to see the LCD lines that never move and the 1990's tranducer plug.....      Did i waste my 15 bucks?

      Sounds like a worn wire grounding out some where.  One of my trailers I just pulled the whole wire harness off and put on a new one. Not fun but it worked. 
    • Hookmaster
      I checked out the truck wiring and it looked good. I towed my duck boat last weekend and the running lights worked. So, it must be my fishing boat trailer. I'll check light bulbs first but may need to rewire since it's seen 20 summers.

      On the main basin... Good fall walleye fishing continues.  Jigs and frozen shiners working well in 28-32'.  Anchor up and jig.  If not finding fish, drift with spinners or troll crankbaits to find active fish.  Fish starting to stack in front Pine Island and other south shore locations.  Some days fish are sliding shallow.  Shiners continue to run up the Rainy River.  On the Rainy River... Shiners are running.  Walleyes are just starting to enter river.  Anglers reporting success both jigging and pulling crankbaits.  Increased sturgeon activity.  Walleye activity is increasing as shiner run continues.     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing is excellent.  Strong numbers of walleyes being caught on mud flats and adjacent to islands. 15 - 25'.  Spinners, crankbaits and jigging all still producing.  Walleyes starting to move towards structure and outside mouths of bays.  Crappie activity strong, guides helpful for crappies.

      It would be nice to have a massive private slough or hunting woods but for the majority of us poor folks it's part of the game. Some days you win and some days the other guy does. Or you just sit home do nothing and play with yur doober!  😕

      Had a nice little surprise yesterday walleye fishing  20180924_085152.mp4

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Lake of the Woods water temps are steadily falling into the mid to low 50’s. This past week cold fronts and strong winds have fish schooling up and feeding heavily.

      In Minnesota, look to rocky bays and adjacent reefs in 15-22ft. of water.  A jig and minnow is all that is needed to catch a limit in a short period of time. Bottle necks between islands in the NW Angle are also worth fishing in the evenings.
       
      In Canada, the fishing has been excellent.  Crappie, walleye and perch are all schooling up and taking a jig and minnow.  With the water temperatures dropping, expect to see the muskie bite increase while trolling. 

      We will be closing October 22nd for ice in! Contact us for availability for your fall fishing trip!

      We hope to see you soon,
      Sunset Lodge
