Doodaa,

Welcome to FM. We're glad to have you.

I wish I could give you a recent report. But, honestly, no on in my clan of fishing buddies has fished it for several years. My last time out there was 10+ years ago and it was dink panfish galore.

Like Ray said, I have not been out there in some time now, but at one point I was hitting this lake 2-3 times during winter ice. My ice fishing crew and I know this lake for the winter of 96 death march. We where out and it started snowing very hard. The fishing was great and kept us out longer than normal, but the walk to the launch was a disaster. One buddy had to leave portable out on lake and go back next day. I took like two hours to get to landing (1' ½’ of fresh powder in 7-8 hours of fishing). At first we could not find lauch in black/white out conditions (before GPS). We did not get home until day light break (after digging out cars and trucks at launch). Just getting home was another task. Its know as the death march grin.gif, one of those things you will never forget.

Hope you read it good, because I only leave info like that on for a short time. grin.gif

Find deeper water if things are not biting. Start shallow and work out into the depths.

Its a long walk, but if you do it right, its worth the walk.

I have not fished Bone in awhile now, because of my knowledge of other lakes in the area. We always talk about Bone and I help out anyone who wants to make the walk.

Good luck!

      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 !!
