MN Fishing Opener: Latest & Greatest Fishing Gadgets

Posted: Updated:

  If you're lucky enough to find ice free water at your favorite fishing spot this weekend, there are a couple of new tools to help you pull in the big one.

  One of the hottest new tools is for your boat. It's called I-link. It frees up both of your hands for fishing, while your boat stays on top of the fish.

Video Demonstration: "When the most popular trolling motor and most advanced fish finder on the water come together… you find the missing link to better fishing."

Luke Myrum, Scheels: "Essentially works with your Minkota trolling motor and your Hummingbird locator to navigate for you, hands free."

  Basically it ties together the information supplied by your fish locator to your trolling motor. You can program it to keep your boat, automatically trolling at a specific depth or over a fixed point 

Luke Myrum: "I you were to get the addition for the motor you already have it would be an $800 add-on. Otherwise, you're looking at anywhere between $1,500 to $1,700 for a new motor setup."

  If that sounds too spendy, everyone is apparently fighting over the latest type of crank bait, at least according to the manufacturer's commercial. It's called the Scatter Rap. It offers very evasive action in the water.

  Whatever your budget, there's likely a riverbank or lakeshore near you, that offers some inexpensive fun for the entire family.

   If you're a Minnesota resident in need of a fishing license, here's how much it will cost you at retail locations:

  An individual fishing license is $23, a husband and wife license is $36, 16 and 17 years old license fee is $6 and kids 15 and under fish free. They don't need a license.
