Its kinda chilling when the Ice Leader Forums move back up to the top of the main page, geeze i just mowed the grass and picked some tomato's.(lol) But this is Minnesota and old man winter will soon be knockin at the door before we know it, Oh well the best fishing is still ahead of us so lets take advantage of the rest of the open water season. But i guess its also the start of another season for the outdoor people of minnesota. ricbak

Brrrrr! So thats where everyone went! It seems like a sickness that takes over many a MN fisher that frequents the internet around the same month as halloween, scary!. wink.gif The ice forums are usually the most popular. Oh well. We still have 2 months of great open water fishin' to go. I'm going to leech lake this weekend to enjoy some walleye and musky fishin' and the great fall colors

There are quite a few of us who fish open water all year. Pools 2 and 4 are very good in the winter. A nice 20 degree day with the sun shining is quite comfortable for being in a boat.

Man I live in Missouri, and I wouldn't dream of goin out on a lake fishin in 20 degree weather! I don't care to hit the lake if it's in the 30's. I guess you upnorth people are used to the cold! BUT I AIN"T! Have a good time when it gets that cold, but be careful!

I was just telling the folks in the metro forums the same thing: If you don't want to put your boat away for the winter come on down and fish pool 4. Shoot the fishing doesn't even get good until Nov. I think the fall bite is better than the spring. There is less fishermen out because of the hunting season.

Phyl: I hope I qualify as one being tuff , not the other. The bite on Pool 2 has been good right now and will continue through the winter. As previously stated , there is not a lot of traffic and competition for the good spots when it is cold.

Ya, you can tell the serious ice fishing guys are getting pumped! I think ice fishing is "ok" but would much rather fish open water(without freezing my ars)....Here I am in Minnesota so I'll make the best of it. Maybe I can make it to one of the FM ice deals just for fun!

I hope we have better ice this year! I had the house out on Cedar for two whole weeks last year and it was still scary!

I was in Baudette in Sept, we had a really good time and the owners of the place where we stayed were trying like everything to get us to come up and go ice fishing. That is one thing I would really like to try! I work with a fellow from MN and he says ice fishing is great. He says you bundle up for the trip out to the ice house, and when you get inside it can be warm enough for shorts! Maybe someday I'll make it up there for fishing the hard water. Till then you all be CAREFULL and GOOD FISHIN!

Yup. We layer up, and our kids look like starfish dolls, but we're out there. When I moved here from CO I called MN the Vietnamese Tundra. When God was making the world, some smart alek came up to it, tapped it on the shoulder and said "oh sure, you can make a jungle, and you can make a tundra, but can you put 'em both together?" "Hmm. Sure I can..."
Voila - Minnesota

It's kind of Chilling when --- You're out ice fishing and crack open a cool one and find out it's too cool and nothing pours out!!! Or better yet, when you take a sip and your lips start sticking to the can!!

I can honestly say I ain't never been outside drinkin a cold one and have my lips stick to the can! I don't think I want to try it either! Hope all you guys UPNORTH have a good season on the ice. From what I'm seeing on the T.V. you won't have long to wait for the hard water. Good Luck and be careful!

    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!
