Ist timer for my 4 year old a total success

Recommended Posts

I took my 4 year old to Upper Red Lake last weekend and just wanted to let anybody know that reads this forum that the stories are all true. We rented a sleeper from All Seasons Rental and Dave and Jay were very helpful and friendly. We arrived on the lake at 1:30 pm last friday and within 5 minutes of dropping a line had a 19" eye. It was the best 24 hours of fishing I have ever experienced and I loved having my little guy with me to show him the ropes and explain why we can only keep 2 walleyes(and he totally understood). In the 24 hours we fished, we caught 41 walleyes, only 2 of which you would normally throw back. Was hard to get 4 under the slot. we also caught a 14" crappie and a 20" Northern. it did not matter what I used, plain red hook, white teardrop with pink dot, gold forage minnow, they bit on everything. Managed to lose quite a few and had 4 or 5 line breaks as well. Will be back up this weekend with a buddie out of Hillmans sleepers and hope to do better on the crappies. Good luck to all and be careful out there

      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.

      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.
