With all this talk of the fish going I had to try and get out! After having my first child two weeks ago and trying to get many things done around the house my wife let me go wink.gif. I wanted to get out early but was held up. I did end up getting on the lake around 10pm with my brother and his friend (both first timers with the night cranking). After trying a couple spots with only a northern I hit a reef on the east side. We pulled sticks and shads between the three of us and found the shads to be the hot bait with fire tiger and perch being the best. We got all but 2 fish in 6ft of water or less over rocks going around 2 mph. Most fish were just over 22 and we had 1 at about 26. We took 7 home for the table between the three of us and all of them were real nice and fat wink.gif. I think we baoted about 15 or so eyes from 10 pm until about 1:30. The fish were still going when we left but we had to go (some people have to work). This is going to be a great fall and the fun has just begun blush.gif

Sounds like you had a good time. I played hockey last night against Al's team and he was a no show. He must have played hooky instead of hockey.

Water Temp?

A quick question, was thinking of heading up this Sat night the 16th and since it's not the full moon anymore, wondering if the fishing should still be good? You hear a lot of guys saying you need the full moon for the night bite but is this really true or any time in the fall a good time to fish at night? Thanks for the help!

You don't need the full moon, it's a nice convenience and might make the fish more active, but you'll catch plenty of fish at other times too, especially now with the water temp dropping. Any time you could go now would be a good time.

      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!

      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 !!
