I dont know which spots you tried last fall. Spots to check out in no particular order. West shore Diamond where T-road from Eagle comes in. Saulsbury beach & county park 5(just east of store) Green. Culverts on Foot and Ringo. If we get some rain & water starts to flow Long(by Willmar), Andrew, West Norway.

Raps in flowing water. Soak a big river chub without running water I think J usually has some. If you try all of these spots this fall one or more will give up what your after.

I'll 2nd what eyewarrior, said. Bring shallow shad raps, stickbaits and light jigs (1/16-1/8)w/ twister tails and paddletails. If you would rather take -it easy, See J's bait he'll have some minnows you can catch fish all nite on.

Thats the key for shore spots.

Some of those spots mentioned have had "wadder" fishermen trying it already.

If I am going to fish from shore, I will wade out to about 2-3ft of water. I will also look for areas that have a quick drop of about 2ft water or in-flowing water.

how do you normally fish the minnows, on a jig or does it work to let them sit on the bottom at night?

1/2 OZ egg slip sinker with 3-4 ft leader. aka lindy rig. Get chubs if you can suckers dont work near as well. Suckers will swim to bottom & try to hide in weeds, chubs swim up and around. Cast it out & let it sit. Styrofoam on line close to rod tip will let you see line going out. Bait caster set on free spool works best if you can cast w/o backlash otherwise spinnig rod with closed bail set with anti-reverse off will work. Good Luck its a great way to fish especially if you like to drink a beer or 6 while fishin

After talking with guys that us larger suckers for muskies. Some guys will place a float inches from the hook to keep the minnow up off the bottom.

      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 !!

      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.
