I thought that Kornois wasnt that great for eyes? I use to go on vactaion there all the time and the walleye fishing wasnt that good, lots of smallmouth nice ones only one eye. Heard it had some rough years back.

Believe me Koronis is a top notch walleye fishery. It gets fished a fair amount but there are fish to be had. You just have to figure out there patterns. I'm sure a few others would agree with me, Right Borch! wink.gif

mmm... lets see

All the lakes around here are good just some better than others. The lakes can get crowded to if a bite is going good. I tend to go to the lakes with litte traffic and find my own spots.

He's probably talking about the one west of Richmond, north of Rice lake. There are plenty of good lakes in the area, I have a couple favorites, but enjoy hitting lakes that don't have much pressure on em too

There are no fish in Big Lake. Don't let the 50 or so fish houses fool you!

I concur with the majority's opinion here, but if I could only fish one body of water around here for the rest of my life...

it would be the grand Mississippi River, America's finest!

I spend most of my formative years fishing Big Lake, Mitchell and Thompson Lkae near Big Lake. Good times. laugh.gif

But I was talking about the one near Richmond in this case.

Terrible Fisherman,

They are there in great abundance. Size is an entirely different story however. Although there are some very nice pike there to be had. I released a fat 38" pike there on my last trip there. A few friends have had very good spearing luck there also.

I see a lot of the hammer handles through the spear hole as well borch. Not as many as I would like but I have been told this is a slow year on the lake in comparision to previous years. Lots of fish for pickling anyway as long as you dont mind filleting 20-24 inch pike.

i agree about the Mississippi river i live on it up by rice and it is great walleye fishing i think the best in central MN. In the summer we catch them right by my house and in the fall right off the dock it's a lot of fun. and we were catching some nice sun fish to. ice fishing you really have to work for them.

      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....
