Did anyone catch a Musky this weekend in the Metro? I don't even care to know what lake you caught the fish on, just want to know if they were biting. I am guessing from the lack of reports the weekend was somewhat un-eventful. I threw a few cast with no luck, but I spent most of my time on panfish with the old man.

They have not seemed to turn on quite yet. I have fished the St Croix a bunch the week before MN opener around Afton and seen 6 fish, but all follows. Hit Tonka hard 2 days ago, had 5 follows, one fish over 50", but once again nothing would take the bait. Same story on Bald Eagle. I am a little upset so far this year, but hopefully persistance will pay off and these fish will really turn on once the water gets into the 70's. It is supposed to be in the 80's all next week, so that has got to help. I think they all spawned late this year as well. A lot of fish I saw were really beat up and 80% of the fish I have seen have been in 4' of water or less. I fish by myself most of the time being I get laid off for the summer because of my job. If there are any die hard muskie guys like myself that want to fish with me during the week, let me know. I try to avoid the weekends unless there is a storm coming, or something that will turn the fish on.

Water Hazard

I was out fishing on a north metro lake with my little brother and his girlfriend on Saturday afternoon. I caught my first muskie ever! It was in about 8' of water. I was fishing with a silver jighead tipped with a small redtail. The muskie wasn't a monster, but it was a lot of fun to catch!

The camera phone was tough to align in the sun...

From what I have seen on some different metro lakes and from talking to other people I think they just havent turned on yet, lots of lazy follows, and fish sightings in the shallows but very few boated. I just hope I am on the water when they do turn on......

      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.
