Aitkin Action

Recommended Posts

Mike W

Got a chance to spend a couple of hours on the river north of aitkin last weekend. That was all it took to put a nice limit of walleyes in the boat. Trolling shad raps threw one of the deeper holes. It maxed out at 7'.
The action was pretty good with boating about a dozen eyes and 2 northerns by myself in those two hours. Fish size was not as big as last year. All where between 10" and 18".
The river is still very low. Banged up the motor on the way back down river.

Back in Aitkin again over the weekend. Managed 2 days of fishing this weekend. The results where about the same. 18 eyes and a half dozen norhterns in a couple of hour on saturday. 28 eyes and 16 norhterns on sunday. The bite was a little slower on sunday due to the bright skys so it took us a few hours to catch them.
The size of the fish are still way down. 14 to 16" is common. None over 20". Biggest northern went about 33".
The river took its toll on my prop again this weekend. It has a nice chunk out of it now. Ouch.

Ouch is right, well in the winter you can get the prop repaired. I now have two I need to bring in. I think it's 50 or 75 bucks. Depends where you go.

I'm sure there are a lot, but off the top of my head Twin City Outboard in Shakopee. They may have to send it out. Should take a week to get it back all brand new looking. You can even get the skag repaired if needed. I think that's 175.

      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 !!

      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.

      Couple boat  trailers sitting on 22 access this afternoon. Everyones getting the itch 
    • smurfy
      Yeah and if that's the case bring your own water for the boat to sit in. I've seen nest on a normal opener!!

      The cheeks could be good sushi if you like the texture. Too chewy for my taste. Now I just pop them in the frying pan for about 10 seconds for a tasty appetizer
