Heading up to the Sham on Saturday for the day looking for muskies. Anyone raising any fish or having and look of sorts? Haven't been up there since Labor Day.

Nope. There are no fish in that lake. Stay home. Just kidding. The fish have been starting to become more active as the water cools. I went there twice last week. Did not boat any but raised plenty.

I was out there last Thursday. Lots of dead time but I managed a 42 and a 49 for my efforts. If it hadn't been for those two fish, I would have blanked, with only one follow. Interestingly I had all three fish going within 100 feet of each other.

Shamineau has really been off for me the last couple years. Not sure what is causing it, but I have not had near the success out there the last 3 years.

I think the cooler weather going on now is going to mess them up a little bit. A warm up would probably get them going again.

Thanks for the help. We caught a 39 on Labor Day up there within an hour of starting to fish and raised some nice fish up there. We ended up having to leave early after a faulty battery and not being able to start up our outboard. So after hauling the deep cycle battery from down below to start the motor, we decided we didn't wanna run anymore. But with a new Interstate Cranking Battery ready to go Saturday morning, we should be able to spend some serious time out on the water. Looking forward to it come rain, wind, and nasty weather....just keep the lightening to the south.

Saturday was a nasty day on the lakes! YIKES! During my stint on Shamineau, I had one fish around 40" follow and that was it on Shamineau. We then went over to Alexander and didn't see anything there, but my partner had some type of fish on but was only there for a 5-10 second period. That was all we did besides get cold and frustrated with the driving wind/rain all day.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . 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.
