fall bite and weather...?

Recommended Posts

So the question up for discussion is...

What is it going to take weatherwise to get the fish going?

It sure doesn't help for the wind to change every other day.

The water temp is around 62. The forcast is for fairly 'normal' fall temps.

Speculations anyone?

I'm not sure how water temps are sitting right now, but hopefully things get cranking for next weekend (after duck opener) as I believe I may be out on the water for 4 days.

Was on Ida yesterday. It was still 61.5.

I got one walleye on a fast break in 30 feet with a 'tail.

Didn't stick around as long as I planned with the wind.

The wind seems to be 25 everyday switching from nw to se every other day.

Not too much drastic temperature cooling in the forecast.

Wouldn't mind trying Miltona, but the winds are too much for my boat.

We fished Miltona last weekend. We caught a lot of walleyes but they were tiny little things. Some of the smallest I've ever caught. We did manage a couple 17's and one 19.5. Caught fish from 5 foot to 40 foot deep. Most on minnows and jigs. a couple on raps. Can't wait to get out again next weekend. hopefully find some bigger fish.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
