Did the cold front make for a slow night of fishing tonight?

It did for me I saw maybe about four fish on the vex and no takers. We had to pack up because ran out of propane and it was getting a little cold.

I did not have a slow night on crappies but they were way smaller last night and I did have to work them alot more then normal. As far as eye's and sunfish go could not buy one? But for the most part this time of year and very cold temp's do slow things down for me.

I actually had a decent bite. Most of them were biting very lite but I did have a 17" eye that hit my spoon/minnow head pretty hard.

We killed them last night. I don't think we went 5 minutes without a bite. The trick on Harriet was small jigging rattling spoons with a crappie minnow head. Jig aggressively until you see something on the vexilar, stop jigging aggressive and drop it down to the fish and then slowly pull it back up to intise a strike. They are not comiting, so you may have to let them take it, which is unusual, but effective. A crappie minnow on a bobber set up was working for my 5 year old cousin. Hope this helps. Then again if they don't show up, its hard to catch them.

Slowest night all week was last night. I caught 12 crappies 2 sunfish and 1 perch in just over an hour. This cold front seemed to slow the bite down. I was out for just over an hour in my permy and thats all i caught. the nite before I had caught 35 crappies 1 perch and two 10 inch eyes.

      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.
