Did a circle of some of the lakes in the area yesterday afternoon (Long, Willmar, Green, Nest). Here is what I saw:

Long: 3 portables out there, still looked like there was some open water in the middle

Willmar: 1 portable

Green: Couldn't see any open water from the southwest corner. Nobody out there.

Nest: Heard there was open water mid last week. Drove to the western access. Saw one BRAVE soul out 200 yards or so beyond the point to the south of the access towards the middle of the lake, probably in about 10 feet of water, and another group of 2 getting set up closer.

Heading to Wakonda again tonight. Sure I will report on that tomorrow.

Ice was good last weekend on the NW end 8-14 inches. Why is the water so cloudy this year? Much worse than last year.

I have been out....had the cam down and saw tons of sucker down there. I don't know how many but wow they were big also. Could be the reason for it being cloudy by me thats for sure!

I was out on Green on Monday and drilled a spear hole in the North East side. Ice was 19" thick. When I got all set up I couldn't see five feet down. Haven't seen Green that dirty in a while. Ice thickness varies all over the lake though so don't drive anywhere without knowing what you are driving on.

wow....19" did you read the tape measure wrong? first 8" break off the tape measure? I have not found anything close to 19" out there yet. 10" maybe 11" but no 19"

We got 14" under our house, but I drilled a hole for a tip-up twenty yards away and it was closer to 8".

slayer73, the people that know me would say I'm pretty darn good at reading a tape(I own a construction company) grin.gif.

As I stated though Green varies a lot but 19" is what it was on my favorite little spot!

Sorry about the mix-up....not to call you a lier, but 19" is not the avg ice thickness. Look at the views of this post.....alot of people lurking out there and never replying....I would hate to have someone drive out there with a vehicle on 19" of ice and go thru....would be a bad day for them. Ice is never safe and I would say that the ice on the ne side is not nearly good enough for a vehicle. I still would say a safe bet for the ice thickness would be 10" to 11" sorry if I am preaching

Slayer, that is why I wrote this in that post.

Maybe thats why so few people post, for fear of getting ridiculed for what they try to say.

You would hope people would check ice thickness before driving out and not just believing what they read on an internet forum.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      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 !!
