I am looking at my sidewalk this morning and there's nightcrawlers everywhere shocked.gif

I cannot believe they are still around this time of the year.

I have an area in the front of the house that in the spring I can pick up thousands and they are out there in full force this morning. I think the water is pumpimg them right up and out of the ground.

I tried crawlers last winter for panfishing and couldn't get a bite. I was using small chunks. I was watching them with the camera and they would just sniff and go away. I switched to a waxie and they nailed it.

What do you fish for with crawlers under the ice?

With all the rain we are getting lately the crawlers are doing the back stroke down the sidewalks and alleys.

I better get a few in some fresh dirt for Looper bait later on this fall.

I will switch to Duluth forum to learn more.

This weather just isn't right. I'm walking for pheasants today and monarchs and yellow sulphurs are flying around, grasshoppers are jumping on me, ladybugs and boxelders are covering the house, earthworms are on the sidewalks this last week. No wonder I can't shoot anything. Anything thermally regulated is completely screwed up. The only thing that is right are plants (photoregulated).

We need cold NOW!

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      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 !!
