Ended up getting my limit this morning. First one of the year, finally. Ended up with 3 gadwalls, 1 mallard, 1 redhead and a hooded merganser. One of the heads came off and had to white out the blood. There still didn't seem to be many ducks around, about the same as it has been. I was just set up in the right place this time. I'll try and post this pic first time trying it.

Not to be a Debbie Downer, you did great fritz so congratulations, especially on a day that hit 70 in November, but Mergansers have a separate bag limit (5).

Nice mixed bag of birds.

I actually just realized that also, thanks. No biggie, I wasn't going to sit out there any longer or else I would have missed the vikes.

Quack- it looks like you got some greenhead gear canada floaters out there, my buddy has some and he has problems with water geting in them(they arnt shot), which makes them much heavier to haul. Have you had this same problem??

no problems at all, I've had GHG goose floaters for 3 years and no leaks or anything. Maybe your friend has some kind of leakage in the keel on the back part, maybe patch it up or find where the water is coming out of and then thats probably where its leaking.

Quack, do you get permission to hunt fields or do you own those? I know someone going to school in Bemidji and I'd like to go out there next year and try my hand, just dont have any idea where to start.

Here's some pics from a mallard shoot I had last thursday not too far from Quackaddict's neck of the woods. The 8 of us filled out on mallards within 45 minutes. Not to mention a bonus blackduck and a piece of jewelery on one of the mallys.

I'm pretty sure Quack hunts NW of Bemidji, like 1.5-2 hours NW...

That blackduck is a Beauty!!! Good job laying the smackdown on these mallards. Not too sure if that was close to where I was hunting.

Sled- We usually hunt our own land and get permission. Same fields for the last 4-5 years.

      What an odd day today. Started out calm and picked up some dinky island lake type  walleyes in front of Barkers Island.     Every single walleye was the same size. All below that 15 inch mark.  Everything came right off the back of the boat with crawler harness and a bottom bouncer.   I don’t really use my planer boards on the river or the bay anymore unless I’m fishing with three people or more and want to spread out rods.  Once your tackle gets more than 10 inches below the water it disappears from sight  and I find planer boards more of a hassle than any other method I fish with   Then the wind really picked up and for some strange reason that seem to shut down the bite.  And I don’t mean shut down, I mean completely shut off. I’m going to head up near the Oliver bridge and Spirit Lake tomorrow and I will post my results here.

      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!

      Speaking of nice breeze, I wish the howling wind would let up.
