I need some last minute stuff.

Personally, I'm going with a 1/8 oz. jighead with a emrald shiner on my jigging rod. A 6 ft snelled LBR with either a leech or a big lake shiner on my LBR rod. My standard blue-chrome suspending shad rap on the trusty crankbait rod. Also, I'm gonna be going with some soft plastics and medium sized husky jerks for throwing up on smaller shallow shelves after dark on my other rods. I might throw a 1/16 oz. with a fathead on a ultralight, if things ghet really tough. It might be hard to do though, with the winds where supposed to have.

I think most fish will be shallow and stay shallow all weekend. It's gonna, be cloudy, windy and all around crappy. Low light. I love that kind of weather. I'll be 10 ft or less all weekend. Hopefully, the fish agree with me. I don't think OT is on my list of lakes though. I don't feel like fighting that lake with the wind we're gonna have.

I'm a little worried about the water temp.. It was only in the high 40's or low 50's last weekend, and I don't think this weather has really warmed it up. It might of came down a bit even.

Anyone got any last minute tips?

Good Luck. I'm outta here, Eden Prairie, about 9 pm tonight. It's gonna be good to catch some real fish. Finally!

There's a big rock point on Clitherall, if you're used to bobber fishing it's a good place to do something you're comfortable with. Use a slip bobber on the deep edge of that thing. Set it kid of deep 8 ft or so, and let it flow out. Or, live bait rigs and jigs will do just fine, and probably better. But, who knows? You just gotta try stuff, and see what happens.

Never fished Anna, but I love Clitherall. I fished it three time last year, mainly for bass, but we did very well on everything. I gotta 28 1/2 in walleye of that rock point last year. So , I know big fish live there.

      I'm pretty sure there is a setting on your Hummer that lets you set where (voltage level) you want to get the "low battery" warning or dropout. At least mine does ... and I temporarily reset it once to keep it from dropping out each time I started the outboard. Of course I wouldn't advise that for a long-term fix as you might go to start the engine one time and get nothing but clicks. Is it possible that setting got changed at one time and maybe it's set too high?

      Well I got skunked on my first ever attempt to fish muskies. It was still a lot of fun and I will try it again!

      DNR urges people to use caution when operating farm equipment Exceptionally dry conditions in the northwest part of the state have contributed to several small fires over the past week. To prevent a possible wildfire, the Department of Natural Resources urges extreme caution when using farm equipment right now.  To reduce the chances of starting a wildfire when working in the field, follow these steps: Make sure machinery is well maintained and working properly to prevent overheating and the formation of sparks. When cutting or mowing, be aware of rocks that may cause sparks if struck by mower blades. Check that all fire extinguishers are appropriate for the size of the machinery, are fully charged, and are easily accessible. Carry an ABC rated fire extinguisher – it can be used for electrical and petroleum-based fires originating on the tractor and for vegetative fires. Check and remove combustible vegetation from motors, exhausts, ledges and brackets several times a day. Remove debris from the surface of the baler using a portable gas-powered leaf blower. Keep hay in groups of 10 bales or fewer and at least 100 feet away from structures or other ignition sources. Firebreaks – 30 feet of mowed grass, bare ground, or rock between bale groups – will help prevent fire from extending to additional bales. Frequently check to see if stored hay is hot or has internal fire (noted by a caramel or strong burning odor, visible vapor or smoke, strong musty smell, or all of the above). Do not move overheated or smoldering hay. Immediately call 911 if fire occurs and provide clear directions to your location. Check the weather – avoid running equipment on days with warm temperatures, high winds, and low humidity. Plan your day – take advantage of mornings and evenings that tend to have calmer winds, cooler temperatures, and higher humidity. Find more information about fire danger at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions. ### Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      From what I'm hearing I believe I will just keep my K-Drill. I have no doubts whatsoever that Nils is a great product and Frank does awesome work on the blades. Many of my friends have used his services before. I drill a lot and almost always on dirty wind swept ice last year was terrible on the lakes I was on. 2 sets of blades for me last year first set got dull around January then replaced to the second set at the end of the year. I did call K Drill today they said that's normal for the usage I do. No cause for alarm at all. So I'm always looking for the grass is greener on the other side type person. No hurt feelings here fellas both are good augers and I will not say bad things about them just thought I was missing the boat but as someone said does it really matter if you get the hole drilled 2 seconds faster? It matters how many fish you pull up that hole😁

      Here's a thought that just occurred to me. I was having some similar issues with my sonar unit. While troubleshooting noise feedback from my trolling motor, one thing I tried was to add a ferrite core filter on the power cable to my HB 596c. Now that I think about it, I have not had a problem with my HB shutting down on starting my outboard since I added the filter. It's possible the ferrite core is attenuating the voltage fluctuation just enough.    Got the clamp-on filter online for less than $5.00. Something like this one from ebay. You need to get the right size to fit your HBs power cable. Mine was 1/4".   Inexpensive thing to try.

      So there is Trout in there as well?  Where is this Holy Buckets Lake?  😯
    • BobT
      Now, I'm puzzled. Both units should therefore be experiencing the same brownout conditions when you start your outboard. I wonder if a surge suppressor might be helpful? Is the bow mount unit a newer unit and if so, maybe it has updated technology that is less susceptible to the voltage drop. I'm just thinking out loud now.

      Wow, nice gill😁
    • Fish Head
      Yes they are.

      Mr Pike, if you are going through blades that fast on the k-drill, you will certainly dull them out just as fast or faster on a Nils. The Ripper style blades that come on the K are about as good as it gets as far as durability goes.
