I fish the Red Lake River quite a bit and have heard of people catching walleyes on frogs. I've tried to do it a few times by just using a plain hook with a weight tied about 3 feet up the line but have had any luck. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for rigging with frogs. Thanks.

I like to hack the rear legs off and cut the belly open. grin.gif I don't know if it helps or not, but thats what I do and it seems to work alright. I will then hook the frog right through the front of the head and toss it out. BTW a 3 foot leader is plenty long...my leaders or distance from my swivel to hook is usually only about 20"'s long or less. Unless your fishing really clear water, shorten it up some. It'll be less likely to get hung up too.

If you're not having alot of luck, try a new location. Sometimes it's not the bait, but the spot that isn't working! That can go the other way too, so who knows.

Good luck.

My best luck for nice Eyes on the Red Lake River is simple Sucker minnows. Just dont cut them up like you do for cats and use the smaller suckers. Cat rig with 4" sucker just hooked throuth the head. Some times I will use a floater rig too.

      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 !!
