Has there been any ice on the smaller lakes in the Brainerd area? I am going to my buddies cabin on a 150 acre lake he doesn't want to fish but I was wondering if ill have a problem pushing the little aluminum boat in and going around with the trolling motor. Thanks for any info.

This morning my lake was mostly iced over and its under 200 so you may have issues. but I believe that the Weekend is supposed to be in the 40's so you shouldn't have a problem.

Dances with Walleye

I'm an hour south of Brainerd, and it was 28 degrees and snowing when I left this morning...

Saturday Afternoon is supposed to get up to the high 40's though, so I'd imagine it will open things up.

It's was pretty slow and my buddy whose cabin I was would rather sleep till 1-2 in the afternoon rather fish the last good weekend of the year????? so got out in the afternoon Saturday I tried fishing a spinner bait for a while and only managed a dink Norther. Right as the sun started to go down I managed the to catch the first walleye we've seen out of that lake ever, we new they were in there but didn't think there were very many got him on a jig head and white grub in really deep water. Sunday I didn't want a repeat of Sat so I took the little boat with trolling motor out by myself early Managed 4 Pike, 3 bass all on jig head and 7.5 inch worm. First pike I got was a fat 9-10 lber caught right out side a guys cabin was orr a duck boat with his buddy to go hunting so they got to watch me fight that fish for bout 5 min. All in all I had fun.

Good to hear. What part of the area were you fishing? Don't need the lake just curious.

      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 !!
