Pine River: Gone but not forgotten.

Recommended Posts

Anybody besides me and Serenity Jack notice Pine River Forum is gone? It was only one post from 100 too.

mm

The Remer forum isn't looking real healthy either!

If you periodically follow the discussion in the Brainerd forum, you'll see that, at times, there's a good bit of talk surrounding the Whitefish area. Heck, long as they keep me around, you can bet there'll be talk of the area-- Whitefish and the Pine River system remains probably my all-time favorite chain of lakes.

Hey Toad,
I will be fishing Lake Hattie for the opener do you know the lake? Any info on bait fish types or what the forage base is? Thanks

Howdy Pherris,

Been on Haittie several times. Good lake. All these lakes on the upper Pine River chain-- Bowen, Brockway, Lind, Hattie-- hold excellent naturally reproduced walleye populations. Hattie contains both ciscoes and perch, though perch figure most prominently into the diets of most of these walleyes, particularly in spring. Don't know whether you've fished the lake before, but a key spot, obviously, remains the Pine River inlet in the NW corner of the NW bay.

Cool thing, too, about the area, is that if you encounter tough fishing on one lake, you can always go hit the next one up or down the chain (although unfortunately not by boat). Brockway, for instance, though only about 20 feet deep, has some nice fish in it, as does Bowen. Spend some time at night with a spotlight up in the shallows near the river inlet. That'll give you an idea, at that point, in which stage of the spawn walleyes find themselves. You might not believe the sizes of some of the 'eyes you'll see at night. Keep in touch!

    • ikr, Duff started some noise a while back but never happened? 😒
    • awesome thanks guys; found out my battery has 88 amp hours; I'll look into my heater, and radio, not sure what the LED lights are, i'll try to look there too;   how long do your guys usually last before in need of a genny?
    • You might be right.  The only common denominator between all of the kickers that have encountered major issues while with the Vikings is Priefer.  He has built the Special Teams unit into a Special Needs unit.  How they can under preform every year and break down at the most critical times and it not come back on Priefer is really mind boggling.  
    • Congrats whippersnapper.   When are you going to get your wings and throw a get together?👈👈☝️👍😁❤😁
    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html  
    • Hey it's my Anniversary old man!   2001 I may not have even been Internet born then? 😄
    • I think Priefer has dirt on the wilfs. That guy should have been fired years ago
