I have been fishing a 20 foot flat out of McKinley Park, and had very good luck last weekend. This weekend it was slow, although the pout hit all night Friday.

Anybody recently have any luck? DEEP? Shallow??? Time???

I have been catching fish in 24' to 30' of water.

I have also heard reports of walleyes being caught in 8' of water.

Shamrock,

Nice perch! I have only gotten one that size so far this winter.

I thought that spot would be a great winter spot! wink.gif

Spent from 7am til about 5p fishin mckinely... first time out on verm this year have been away at college. We ended up with 3 keeps out of 4 guys. We didn't move around or anything like usual so I cant confirm its slow everywhere but people in our area didn't have anything good to say about the last few times they had been out. I caught of the 2 keeps and 1 small throwback, missed a huge something on the tip up wasn't on long enough to knw anything more than it was pretty big. I was switchin off between pink/white demons and jigging different color angel eyes, if I was to go up there tommorrow, I would be lookin for structure with areas as Cliff mentioned with transition.. as I told my buddies many times yesterday, mckinely is not the only place on the lake

Hey Mike,

How in the world did you know who I was? Did I tell you my screen name before or just a guess? Anyway, I just wanted to try vermillion once this year. I am probably going to go out on Ely tommorow. Debating which spot to try, but I have a good feeling as to which one will produce the best.

      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 !!

      Really small scallops

      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.

      I guess I was being to kind. Nah nah nah nah, ....Turn out the lights already. LMAO!How Disappointing. Wolves your next......
