Anybody from Roch interested in heading out tonight? I'll be fishing smallies in an area not far from Rochester. I'd like to leave around 7ish and fish till dark.

I've got an extra pair of waders if your lacking...

Shoot me an email or reply before 6:00pm

Won't be able to make it tonight. Gotta try to catch a few farmers to get permission for goose hunting. Have you been to SD lately? My last fishing trip of open water will be out there Sept 23rd weekend. Good luck tonight.

Nate Larson and I spend the shorter part of an hour and a half on the ZR in Oxbow Park last night. The rumors I've heard are true. Lots of smaller fish, but the larger ones are harder to find. I did get myself a pair that went a little better than my shoe size, but that's about it for size.

I had the best luck on a Mr. Twister peppered pumpkin color in the 3" size with a 1/8 oz THO blue jig. We had our best luck in deeper water and rapids, but rocks were key in both scenarios.

I'm thinking I'll throw a crawdad plastic in the mix on my next outing to oxbow.

We’ve got a rematch planned this Thursday. Wanna?

I gave Nate a couple of pointers today on where to fish at Oxbow. They are not plentiful, but I have caught smallies in the 17 to 19 inch range. Lots of fun on light gear.

Hey Lew,

Thans again for the pointers. I will let you know how I do! You will have to give me a full report of your fishing trip as well.

Well we only got on the water for a few casts tonight before the storms blew us off. I wanted to try a craw plastic, so I opted for the Berkley Power Bait crawdad brown with orange pinchers. I only got 1 fish on it, but it was the biggest of the evening. Nate caught a couple rock bass and some dink smallies. He was using a Mr. Twister 3" black/silver with a pink 1/8 oz jig head. We prob only fished for about 30 minutes... if that...

Not a trophy, but I don't make it out smallie fishing much so I thought I'd better snap a photo.

More Oxbow Park fishing to come this weekend.

I am glad we got out of there when we did! Talk about some crazy weather. I am guessing that the streams will go up significantly with this rain. Make sure to post some more pics after this weekend.

It would have been nearly imposible to fish Oxbow with kids this weekend. Water was high, brown, and sizzling fast.

That's kind of what I figured. Thanks for the update. I hope that everyone had a good time nonetheless. Hopefully the water goes back down soon!

      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 !!
