Good weekend

I rented a sleeper house through JR’s Corner Access for three nights with two buddies over New Year’s weekend. The owner moved the house to a favorable location right before we got there which was very nice. We caught a total of 38 walleyes with the majority of fish 15-20”. Also, we missed quite a few. This was my first time fishing Red Lake, and I was very happy with the lake and resort.

my guys had similar fishing success.

JR and Chad Benson, who also guides out of the resort are both great guys and work to keep their houses on fish

Does the resort at JR' access have much for food, drink, and bait? There will be a group of twelve of us going up next weekend and going through Chad Benson. Hopefully with this warmer weather coming the bite will be good. Has anyone used any Reelweeds on Red? If so do you think they have helped hold the fish around longer? I'm debating on buying a box of them before we head up. Thanks

Jr's has a fish cleaning area, and he will fry up your catch with fries for $5. It was good. He also has beer, so my two food groups were satisfied. He has minnows also. Other than that, I think he has chips and snacks. We were out about 1.5 miles in the red house. We caught the most fish on a plain red hook with a fathead. Also, I should apologize to anyone who heard us sing kareoke on new year's eve. Good luck!

I made my own "reel weeds" and tried them on red last weekend, it didn't seem to help that much for walleye. Seems to me that they would work better for holding crappie. Last weekend sounded like the bite was pretty slow though but I didn't notice a big difference with the weeds down. Give em a shot

      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 !!
