Got out early this morning to try for some walleyes. Fished 16 foot of water and was fishing by 6:30. Ended up catchin two eyes, one was small the other was 18 inches. I also lost an even bigger one right in the whole. All the action was between 7:15 and 8:00. Was using a blue and chrome colored jiggin rap. Moved out to 34 foot of water and finally ended up finding some nice crappies. I think I kept 12 all around 10 inches and had two that were over 11. Pretty good day out there for me.

Hey buddy, that pic you sent over only showed 12 crappie! Now who's the fibber... ;\) Glad you finally got into the croixpie, worth the wait for sure. What did you get the crappie on?

Nice report! I am a little worried though that between you and Blue there won't be any Crappies for a "normal" guy and his son to catch.

Don't worry I let them go most of the time, I'm sure there will be plenty of them left in the river. I started out using a gold jig and the fish wouldn't take it. Switched to one of those small jigging raps in that same blue color I was using yesterday and was getting them on that. They were coming up at hitting them. Couldn't even feel a bite, had my finger on my line and when I couldn't feel the weight of the lure anymore I'd set the hook and they'd be on. Also caught a decent amount of them on a slip bobber with a very small white and pink gemini. Most fish I marked on my vexilar were closer to the bottom then I have seen in the last week. I didn't really mark any fish more than 2 feet off the bottom.

Hey fishin, leave your son out of it, just cause you can't catch fish, don't come crying to me. I saw that jig you left on my rod last week, I wouldn't eat that either unless you paid me... Just kidding buddy, I can take off Friday, so me and your son will show you how it is done.

I still have a half pallet of club crackers I need to go through, I'll be bringing the propane cooker out Friday, lunch is on me.. grin.gif

Hey uwl, thanks for the info, sounds like you worked for them. LB

Hey Blue maybe this time you let the little guy sit in the little green shack like he wanted to last time (where all the fish were caught). Friday sounds like fun, you bring the lunch and I'll bring a few beverages. Oh and by the way this time I will put bait on my hooks. I didn't want to out fish you after you put me on some of your spots but this has gone on long enough!

      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.
