We've got a camping trip coming up this weekend to Myre Island State Park. Is there any shore fishing for sunnies or crappies to speak of within the park on Albert Lea Lake? Thanks!

I can see why nobody responded, what a gem of a lake! I wouldn't want the secret getting out either. Absolutely the best lake I've fished this spring.

Fished with Flamefox for a couple of hours this Saturday.

Thanks bud.

He showed me where the "bait shop" was located and drove me to a couple of hot spots so my family could catch a few crappies. (will post picture later)

Good meal that night!

Might try it again tonight with my boys and my brother-in-law.

I didn't know that Albert Lea lake was any good, thought is full of pollution from the meat packing plant days. Did they clean it up, and what kind of fish did they stock in it? I'll have to give it a try. Maybe drag snapcrackpop along with me.

It was a good time. A few crappies for the frying pan. I even kept 2 bullheads to try them. WOW, I was surprised. My kids only want to catch them to eat now.

Here is the nicest one from the night. Brother-in-law in background.

Thanks again.

Any luck with the morning bite?

Does anyone have any info on the walleye fishing? I saw on the DNR website that they had some huge gill net lifts in the last survey. I am not looking for anyone's honey hole. I am just looking for how to fish them down there. I thought the lake was very shallow. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

      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!

      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 !!
