We're flexible. I see Lisa will be gone the 14th, so the weekends on either side would be ok.

It doesn't matter to me, I'll be there one way or the other. The bite is picking up out there. 3 of us last night put 15-20 'eyes in the boat and kept 6. LOTS of little ones!

That Saturday should work for me, plus it gives me an excuse from having to mow the grass at the cabin.

I still have some rather large shiners left over from this past weekend. Should I bring them along to fry up?

after reading about this gtg i thought yippy i could get up to the cabin 2 weekends in a row and take in a northern mn fm gtg, finally meeting all these people lying about hunting and fishing, ok i was just kidding about the lying part, ive never met a dishonest sportsperson before, hehhe, then i get home and in the mail is an invite to a surprise 25th wedding anniversary. bummer!!!! seeing i was the best man i figured, ok my wife did, that i best go to it. so that shoots down another gtg oppurtunity. on a brighter note no grad parties so far, yea. now that im done whinning everyone have a good time and dont eat to much smelt.

ok, I have a situation here.

my oldest son, has decided to kick it into gear and finaly get his required school work done, proving my gut feeling wrong, he, out of spite, has graduated high school.

this means we will be having a graduation party for this little butt terd. just kidding...sort of. I love him to death, but he is I have to say more stubborn than his father and made this whole senior year much harder than it should have been.

at any rate, we with short notice have to put something together for him. it has to be on a weekend when my wife is not working and we do not want to push it out to july, so looking at the callendar, we will have to do this on the 14th of june...see my problem?

it will be a somewhat small gathering of family and friends, but I will most likely join my wife in celebration.

If I do make it to the campground, I probably wont be sober.

hey, I earned this one.

I will most likely take friday off, to get everything ready, so I might be able to sneak up friday evening.

saturday will be hit and miss.

who knows how it's going to go for sure.

I know after 18 + years, I am glad to get this one on the books!

I'm not sure about the fishing on that Saturday but for sure we'll socialize in the evening. Who is actually camping? I think we'll just drive our 3/4 mile over there! grin jigglestick, you are a natural born storyteller, let me tell you!! Congrats on the grad!

My son, nephews and I fished the public access area off of #19 on Moose Lake. We actually caught some really nice perch!! No one wanted to clean them, so they lived another day! I know it's sunnies you're after so I'll keep my ears peeled if I hear of any reports around the cabin this weekend ok?

Dave, Is that campground run by the DNR and does it have electricity? Mrs. boatfixer wants to know.

It's a pretty nice campground. It's really clean! When Jim and I got married up here at the cabin, some of our guests stayed here and they had no complaints. No worries jigglestick! I hate it when I get those old Alzheimer's moments!! madcrysmirk

So the official date is the 21st? I'm on call that weekend and will be stuck at home waiting by the phone for work to call. I could make it up there after I'm done working on the 20th Friday night (6pm) if anyone will be around.

Sounds like it might not work for us either frown It looks like I will have to work the next few Saturdays. We might not be able to camp for awhile yet mad

We could be open for an afternoon GTC tho. Any thoughts?

We could postpone this too. We're up EVERY weekend for the most part.

      Sorry - Not close to it right now.  Everything is factory default at this point except some color selection, depth highlights, low battery alarm and SI distance to 70 ft.  I was wondering if I should change the transducer setting or kHz setting but that does not seem right.
    • rundrave
      can you provide some screen shots or more info of your menu options and how you have everything set up at the time you took that pic?

      Fished Huntington lake on Memorial weekend.  Within the first 20 minutes my buddy pulled in a monster largemouth, but pretty slow the rest of the day.  Picked up a few smaller bass.  Saw a Northern just chilling by the surface, looked to be around the 30" mark but couldn't get him to bite.     Didn't get a chance to fish the other lakes in the area.  Beautiful lakes to be on, though.  Water clarity is unreal, we were watching the loons chasing fish underwater.

      LoonASea - Thanks, I have been looking at the tutorials but I can't figure this out.  I also spent 1.5 hours on hold yesterday with HB without ever getting through.   I did speak with HB tech support awhile ago and their advice was to go back to default setting which it did.
    • MNredneck
      I am going to cuyuna in a coule weeks and I am planning do do a little bit of fishing but am not much of a trout fisherman. Do the northerns and bass in the mine lakes have any size to them?
    • LoonASea
      Lots of good tutorals  on YouTube ,,, Or call Humminbird tech support

      To the other Helix users.  I have a Helix 7 Chirp SI GPS G2 that I am having down imaging issues with.  I am sure it is a user error.  I have a lot of clutter on the screen.  Basically a horizontal line of clutter at every foot and the detail level is terrible.  I understand it is not a Mega unit but this lack of detail and clutter is not helpful at all.  I am on the newest software (2.000) and was having the same problem before updating the software.  I can switch to a regular sonar view and see fish and switch back to DI and do not see anything.  The only way to get that horizontal clutter to disappear is to take the sensitivity down to 1 or 2 and then I can't see anything anyway.  It is not networked, nothing else in use and transducer is off the back of the boat.   Do I need to make some other adjustment or selections besides sensitivity, contrast, etc.?  I have tried just about everything but am not having a great deal of luck and have gone back to default setting.  Pics attached from last weekend from a very clear lake with about 6 feet of clear visibility.   Thank you for the help!
    • CigarGuy
      Me too. Just got up here and want to go out fishing!
