I have fished the miss this winter but have had little success. I fish in between the sartell dam and rice bridge and not to much luck this season. Just wondering but were you fishing on top or below the sartell dam when you went out?

I've picked up a few here and there down by Sartell below the dam. There are lots of guys out there, though, and I haven't seen many people catch much. I know that you can catch some nice cats, though, so I went out and got into a few of those. I even ate one, and it was actually pretty good!

I've heard lots of talk of people catching good numbers of walleyes below the Sartell Dam, but every time I've been there (six or ten times, I'd say) it's been pretty slow, so I don't know if there's any truth to the rumors. In all of my trips there this year, I'd say I've got eight keeper walleyes, with a few cigars thrown in.

I've also done some fishing up between Sartell and Rice by that old abandoned bar/restaurant...I don't know what it's called. I've never caught anythign up there, but I've seen some permanent houses out there, so I'd imagine either kids are drinking beer or people are catching fish...

"The old abandoned" thing i think you are talking about was called pirates cove but it burned down a while back. Has anyone been fishing above the dam by the ice breakers or in that little bay just across from there.

Been down below the Sartell dam five times this year, 2 10" walleyes to show for it and a couple slimy eelpout. Cops also chased me off last time too, not worth it at all. The chain is a much better option for eyes imo.

Yup...I think it's Rivers Edge...There's a little access there and a small parking lot. I've been there a few times but have yet to see a fish on the flasher.

      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 !!
