Fished Duck Lake Friday evening the 26th. Lots on small crappies. They are really small but fun to catch none the less. Would be a good spot to take kids for an action packed evening. Approximately 6" of ice.

I know Duck opened up earlier this winter, but so did Washington. How come we have 14" of ice in Mud Bay and only 6" on that smaller lake? Since there were only four houses on the lake this weekend, it looks like you were in the same area the bite went last winter.

Yeah, I thought that was interesting also. Must have had something to do with the wind before the last cold snap.

Duck was 90% open and Mud Bay was never open. Bakers was open and now has 6" of ice.

I have never fished this lake before but I talked to a guy on Washington yesterday that said he was going to head out there, b/c we both figured out that the gills and crappies were very negative yesterday. We stuck around for 3 more hours and fished off the north access and Westwood anywhere from 30'-8' of water search for the fish but never found a spot where they were holding and when you would find some once you got set up in your shack they were gone again. Anyways I think we might have to give Duck a shot.

Yeah we made it out Friday night from 4-7:30 or so, and didn't do very well. Fished 17' of water and caught them from the bottom to 7' down. Only problem they were few and far between and they were only 5". I don't know if I was doing something wrong or not in the right spot.

Good to hear. I am sure the weekend traffic had a lot of to with it. I think with the warmer weather coming by the end of the week we should start getting into a better biting pattern. I haven't crossed duck of my list of places to try yet

      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.
    • Rick Bancroft
      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.

      Going out in 2 hours! And Sat. too for half a day....
