fun float

went on a canoe float yesterday... what a fun day. We brought a predator call and 2 .22's. The water has receded about 3' since the high water from snow melt. We didn't see any fox or 'yotes, no coons or skunks. But did I ever wish that it was duck opener again. We saw hundreds of mallards and geese. Some around every bend. THere were also many buffleheads and hooded mergansers. The pheasants surpised me. We had to have seen 40 hens, but... We only saw 2 rooster's. I thought that was strange, just part of their habits this time of year. Not sure but w/ the polarized glasses I saw many fish. Mostly suckers and chubs; but there were definetly a few brown trout that I saw. River changed quite a bit from last year. New downfalls, a new portage, and a couple different eddies. Some downfalls made some very nice holes to fish. I know where I'll be for Trout and Duck openers this year. I wish I could have had a shotgun and a rapala or 2 yesterday. What a blast, I would reccomed a float down your local stream on the warm days coming up.

now THAT sounds like a good idea! I have been meaning to do just what you did for a long time now, but get caught up in so much else this time of year. I know what you are saying about the pheasants, but I have seen the opposite-tons of rooties, but few hens. Gonna be a great year for them this fall.

      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 !!
