I'm going to be camping around Pillager this weekend... I might pull up and head to Alexander one day... If I do I'll check the temp and get back to you.

Lakes in the area last weekend were reading in the low 60's before that cold front from He** moved in.

****

As for Musky Opener... I'm going to be night fishing for eyes on Friday night since it's a full moon and all... But as of right now my two boat mates cancelled on me... So if you see a tall bald guy around sun down struggling to launch a Tracker by himself, that'll be me!

I'm planning to night fish for eyes... Try a little Musky Action after midnight... But Pull out by 2:00-ish... Crash at my Buddy's place in Pillager, and then back after it for Musky on Saturday.

****

When I was pan fishing back in April in the slop bays behind Greens/Crow Island, I actually saw a Pair of Musky... 40-42 inch Male was nudging what looked to be a 45-50 inch PIG of a female... (Water may distort actual measurements)

She just sat there, 3 feet from the boat staring at us...

After about 5 mins I reached for my camera, spooked her and and they bolted...

10 Mins later we dropped the electric and used to to move to another spot... As we were coming out of the bay... I see this flash at the starboard side of the boat, It was the big female and suddenly I feel this soft "Boomf."

My Buddy had been riding close to some floating weed clumps all day with my trolling motor... So I shouted out an accusatory "What the He** did you just hit!"

He stopped the motor and said "Oh... My... God... I just hit a Musky!"

Sure enough just off the port side of the boat was the Male... He shook it off, and bolted away back to keep to the female's side.

I still can't believe we bounced a Musky off the trolling motor!

In my experience it's not worth your time to even bother targeting Walleye during the day on Alexander...

As for the night fishing... I have my hot spots etc... But I just can't give them away...

While there's a bunch of places on the lake where "You can catch them." There's really only a handful of places on the lake that really have that "Hot Night Bite."

I was up this weekend, and the cold front shut them DOWN! The water temp was 61 degrees on Sunday afternoon, but should probably go up a couple more this week.

Opener (eye and nort opener) morning, I saw a 40"+ male cruising side by side with a 50"+ female, right below my feet at the end of the dock. Quite a sight to see!

Fished Friday night (8:00-10:30 pm) and limited out on 16-19" males. 17-22 ft weed edge (20 ft was best) and were hitting the leeches under a bobber and on a green jig. Same spot Saturday produced no fish. Sunday night produced 2 18 inchers. Caught a couple shorties (and a 19 inch smallie) during day time, but out in 32 ft. Did see a pair of 40+ musky that were coming in for a look at the trolling motor. Just sat and stared at it and when I let off the power they just turned and went deep. This was in 26 ft. Very cool looking down and seeing those mammoth beasts, but strange how they were attracted to the motor.

      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 !!

      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.
