fishing in the rain...

Recommended Posts

minnesotatuff

in my experience fishing today in the rain would be one of the most misserable to be out. all your gear gets completely drenched...then the cold sets in. its usually a good walk back to the vehicle too.

in my younger days i did all that stuff. best of luck and all good wishes for anyone doing it today.

finally, in my life i have clear direction of goal for my future, thats to be living at mille lacs. im a ways into the transition but the logistics are complex and slow.

my brother told me "anyone can retire whenever they want. its just a matter of adjusting your living style." that comes up in thought often.

i look forward to the time when i can wake up in the morning and look out the window to see what the lake looks like that day... to be there, to fish whenever i want, where ever i want, for what i want (within the law).

city life and the corporate world is taking its toll on me. life is too short!

regards,

Yeah, unfortunately I can't go fishing if I don't work. Seems like an unfair trade to me. I definitely can't buy all the equipment I want...and let's face it, even if we have everything we need, we always want more. Yep, being a workin' stiff sucks. Although I've done my fair share of fishing in crappy weather, as I look out the window right now I'm not too depressed that I'm not out fishing. Let's just hope that when I'm retired and can do all the fishing I want global warming hasn't turned all of our lakes into mud bowls.

      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 !!

      Really small scallops

      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.
