dickies on mille lacs on 1/26-1/28

Recommended Posts

six of us stayed at a worn down,cold,drafty,and fishless shack,approx 1-1/2 miles out from breakers!rockie,flat bottom in about 14-19 ft of water.we had the vexlar,and aquaview.

four of us hired two well-known guides for four hours,(left out of hunters)and still did not pull out any fish!!

midnight-2a.m. on the last day,we had two eelpoor(typo i'm sure)hit our rattle reels we installed due to the ones in the shack that were broken.

any information on what/where we might of went wrong would be appreciated?

we would come back next year if things were different?

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota. Next year I would just watch the reports on the forums and you will see where the quality resorts are. One has to also remember that when a front comes through that even the guides cannot make the fish bite. They can put you on structure that is and has been good with all the right equipment but, if the fish shut down then it wont matter who guides you.

I have heard of other reports from fisherman that they had cooler than normal houses this past weekend with all the wind and cooler temps.

Sometimes things just dont work out liked planned. The weather has many times messed up a trip to the pond for myself.

    • Do you have a code reader?  Try erasing it and see if it goes away?  The best investment I made was buying a cheap code reader for like $59 at Fleet Farm. I have cleared codes on 3 different vehicles over the years that I never had to bring into a shop for.  Most of them are just hiccups like misfires, once cleared they go away.   Most car dealers will charge around $80-90 to do a "Diagnostic".  I've paid for the thing 10 times over already.   
    • I'm getting a P0123 error code.  Comes up with Throttle Position Circuit High Input and Throttle Sensor Out of Range came up.  Any idea what all possibilities come with this?
